“Get lost in the snow!”
Reviewed January 15, 2013

Great place to get away from it all and get lost in the white outs, great views and quaint little mountain huts all over to grab a coffee and warm up a bit .

“great hiking”
Reviewed January 12, 2013

been there many times, crossing between huts, great view and great hiking, recommend staying in local huts - that way you dont have to carry food, drink or tents - nice for a week hike!

“Which Vihren?”
Reviewed October 1, 2012

There is Mount Vihren and there is hut Vihren..., and may be there is hotel Vihren in Bansko - you have to specify !
Mount Vihren is a marvelous place, but it is reached only by foot (or a helicopter) luckily :). It is the highest peak in Pirin mountain (2914 m). About several hours walk from hut Vihren.
Hut Vihren is not a place I will recommend to sleep at. ... Anyway it is a basic point for climbing Mount Vihren. There is an asphalt road between it and Bansko - apr. 30 min drive.

“Not much going on”
Reviewed July 16, 2012

We walked to Vihren from the gondola centre but to be honest it doesn't live up to much. They were busy doing building work, the toilet facilites were not for the weak minded either.
