“Incredible!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 10, 2013 via mobile

We stayed at Hostel Mostel in Sofia and when we arrived the friendly staff suggested a couple of free tours we might like to do. One of them was the Sofia Green Tour hiking up Vitosha mountain to Boyana waterfall. This hike was AWESOME!!! It is definitely hard work and not one I would recommend for small children or people unused to walking far. There was a lot of climbing involved, especially as you reach the top of the waterfall but the breath taking views more than make up for sore muscles the next day! Wear sensible shoes for climbing and be prepared with water and a sandwich to keep you going as the round trip took 5hours. Amazing views and knowledgable guides. Loved it!

“Boyana Fall”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 2, 2013

great 4 hour walk in the mountain with friends; it might be a bit exhausting for people not used to walking/ climbing in the mountains, but if you do it slower they'd be ok

“Gotta see it!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 1, 2013

It will be a good walk up the mountain to get there but it is beautiful! Where can you dip your hand in the water and be sure it is safe to drink?

“Good destination for a hike in Vitosha”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 29, 2013

If you decide to go for a hike to escape the city, this is an excellent destination. There are basically two ways to get there: a rocky trail along the Boyana stream (not recommended under icy conditions) and an easier one via Boyana lake. You can take one to get there and return by the other. The trailhead can be reached by continuing on the road on which Boyana church is and turn right at the end (straight up the hill). Follow yellow signposts for водопад (waterfall), via Езеро (lake).
