Experience the thrill of winter hiking on the panoramic ridge of Malyovitsa peak – a step away from its legendary alpine wall! Enjoy the hospitality of a local guesthouse and make first steps in ice climbing.
Day 1: Arrival and Transfer to the Mountain
Your host will meet you at Sofia Airport at around 18:30 and transfer you close to the Malyovitsa area (1½-hour drive) to a family guesthouse where you’ll stay tonight and rest ahead of some challenges tomorrow.
Day 2: Hiking the Malyovitsa peak
After breakfast at the guesthouse this morning, you’ll hike for approximately 3 hours to a col between the two peaks Malyovitsa (2729m) and Orleto (2575m); this is your start point for some real climbing!
The climb to the peak of Malyovitsa will take around 1 hours. After a short break, you’ll hike back down to the guesthouse for dinner and a good night’s rest.
8-9 hours hiking, ascent 1000m, descent 1000m
Day 3: Ice climbing
After breakfast at the guesthouse you begin a hike (approx. 1,5 h) just above the mountain hut in preparation to start the real ice climbing.
You will ice climb for about 2.5- 3 hours, after which you’ll descend back down where your transfer will be waiting to take you back to the airport for your forwarding journey home.
3 hours hiking, 3 hours ice climbing, ascent 450m, descent 4500m
