The hills are alive... a singing holiday in a mountain setting, amidst ancient churches and hot springs. It’s not only a singing holiday but each day we offer the chance of gentle but spectacular walks using chairlifts.
A typical itinerary on this Acapella singing holiday in Bulgaria
We reach our mountain hotel in time for a stroll around the gardens and a short singing session together before dinner.
We spend most mornings singing in and around the hotel or in the high mountains, to which we drive.
In the afternoon
To get the most out of your visit to this stunning landscape, the holiday is aimed at those who enjoy a walking holiday as well as singing holiday. After lunch on most days we offer the option of an easy walk of 3-5 miles. We visit Bezbog Lake where a gentle stroll leads us to awe-inspiring views within the heart of the Pirin Mountains. Trips include pretty neighbouring villages with hot mineral springs – just perfect for a rejuvenating dip. Additionally we visit churches and uniquely located cafes.
Either a chance to rest and swim at the hotel or an optional excursion by coach (1hr 45mins) to the fabulously ornate Rila Monastery in the heart of the Rila mountains. There is time to explore beautiful Byzantine style church and bell tower and tour the historical and agricultural museums before sitting down to lunch in a traditional Bulgarian mehana. After lunch, we follow the pilgrims’ trail from the monastery through glorious meadows and woodland to the chapel and cave of St Ivan Rilski. Adventurous souls can climb through the cave chimney, it's said only the righteous can pass! (Easy terrain, 2.5 miles, 1.5 hours)
We depart for Sofia airport after breakfast.
Note: This is a typical week on our singing holiday in Bansko, Bulgaria. Weather conditions will influence the final itinerary.
