Sports Activities

Outdoor Pools

If you wish to experience true Bulgaria and visit in the summer, one of the local attractions is the outdoor pool in the village of Belchin Bani, which is about 20 km away from Borovets. The pool is filled from the mineral springs which are famous for their healing qualities. Being a large outdoor complex, there is lots to do there.

Horse-Riding

Horse riding is available in many places around Borovets, all of them offering stunning rides through mountain forests and catering for all abilities. Contact us for details.

Fishing

There is a choice of fishing options around Borovets. You can take your pick from the more traditional form of fishing (by taking your chances in the Iskar Dam) or alternatively, visit the local fish farm which is located between Samokov to Borovets, where you are guaranteed a catch! You will have to pay for it afterwards but at least your supper will be sorted for the night!

Hiking

Bulgaria boasts some of the best mountain scenery in Europe, with many unspoilt areas in the Borovets Rila Mountain range.
If you are willing (and able!) you can also try to climb the Musala Peak, which is the highest peak on the Balkans. You will not need to worry about a guide as there is an easy-to-follow tourist route.

Only 20 km away from Borovets is yet another peak to ‘conquer’ – the Malyovitsa peak, where you can also enjoy rock climbing.

Mountain Biking If you are keen on biking we can also offer you a mountain biking trip. Numerous places offer mountain bikes for rent and there are several trails up the mountain.

Lake Iskar

This is yet another local destination where you will be able to enjoy the beauty and breathtaking tranquillity of the mountains in the summer. Lake Iskar is just a few minutes drive from Borovets and offers summer water-sports, fishing, mountain sun-bathing and swimming.Para-gliding

Another sport to try is paragliding in the mountains near the Seven Rila Lakes where you will be spoilt with the magnificent views. Please contact us for details

Golf

Golf fanatics can enjoy the golf course near the town of Dolna Banya ‘Ibar’ – a small town about 50 km from Borovets. There you will also find a swimming pool, football field, tennis courts, basketball and volleyball courts.
