ECO HIKING TOUR FOR HEALING HERBS AND PLANTS

A great opportunity to combine the positive effects of the sun and the mountain herbs all in one. In the Rila mountain everywhere around Borovets there are over 200 types of herbs to be found - some rare and protected. In a brief panoramic tour with a mountain guide lasting between 1 to 3 hours you will have the opportunity to get to know over 20 types of plants. The tour is equally suited for adults and children or beginner mountaineers.

A few words about the guide who will not only entertain you with stories during the tour, but will also let you see and appreciate the magic of the mountain herbs. Kostadin Georgiev has been with Borosport for 10 years and is a passionate lover of nature. The mountain is his life. Herbs and mountain plants especially are his passion.
