Rodopi Mountains hiking or snowshoeing trip - Mineral bath in Narechen village

The Rhodope (highest peak - Goliam Perelik - 2 191 m) are the widest mountain massif in Bulgaria, being also the oldest land on the Balkans. Here one can find the loveliest coniferous woods in the country and the most preserved nature. This is the land of the legendary Orpheus where one can also find 70 % of the world minerals as well as 600 caves.

Depending on the season we go for a hiking amidst the greenery of the greatest massif of coniferous woods in Bulgaria or for a snowshoeing on the surface of the white array of the stunning Rhodope Mountains.

We head from Plovdiv to a place nearby Orehovo village (altitude: 1200 m). From there we start hiking (snowshoeing) to Persenk hut (altitude 1750 m). We continue uphill to the highest point of the trip - the countryside Grobite (altitude 1950 m). Then we hike only downhill to Chudnite mostove hut (altitude 1500 m). There we'll visit the nature phenomenon The Wonderful bridges - a unique nature phenomenon, consisting of two rocky bridges over a small river - height of 43 m.

The best to do after an active walk in the mountain is to relax into the warm and nice waters of a mineral bath. The car will take us from The Miraculous bridges to Nerechen village where we'll have a mineral bath.

At the end we go back to Plovdiv by car.
