4.8/5 based on 100+ reviews on the web
Climb, hike, and ski at Vihren, the highest peak in Bulgaria's Pirin Mountains. Start from Vihren Hut, and follow the red markers. You can see all the highest peaks of the Pirin massif and a number of lakes from the summit, which is 2,914 m (9,560 ft) above sea level. Be cautious on the north side, as the path is narrow and rocky. On the way down from Vihren Hut to Bansko, on the left side of the path, look for the 1,300-year-old Baikousheva white fir. Always bring water and additional clothing when climbing to the peak. Make Vihren a centerpiece of your Bansko vacation itinerary, and find what else is worth visiting using our Bansko trip generator.

  • The parking lot is narrow and small. There are many crowds. There is a wonderful view from above. The air is very clean. Not very steep. 
  • We made a short hike from the Vihren Hut, accessible from bansko by shuttle buses in the summer.
