Vacation in Sapareva Banya for nature lovers

We recommend you not to miss the Ovcharchensky waterfall and the Goritsa eco-trail. The route is easy, suitable for families with small children or less sporty people, but it offers incredible views. Taking a walk on the pleasant and picturesque eco-trail you will reach the 39-meter Goritsa waterfall or Ovcharchensky waterfall. Legend has it that it was named after a beautiful girl from the nearby village of Goritsa, who, in order to avoid the abduction by the local bey, threw herself from the rocks of the waterfall. It is truly impressive at that time of year when the snow is melting and the water is raging down from the rocks.

There is hardly any need to introduce the Seven Rila Lakes in detail. The divine beauty of the area and the crystal water of the lakes is one of the natural phenomena of Bulgaria. The lift offers you easy access there, and the walk to the lakes is not difficult at all. Of course, if you want to enjoy all the magic, you’ll need to gather your strengths and climb to the top for a 360-degree view.

For the more enthusiastic guests, we recommend to take the route that leads to the highest Rila waterfall named Rilska Skakavitsa. And there is no need for a big introduction of this place of interest – the waterfall is fabulous, and if you want a complete natural experience, you must plan a hike to Mount Kabul.
And last but not least, if you haven’t been to the area around the village of Panichishte – don’t hesitate to visit it. The resort village is named after Panichishte Lake, and the “Fairytale Trails” is an experience your children will never forget.
