We did the advanced downhill trails with Anton & George. They were really good fun and such cool guys. Equipment was all fine. I would say for downhill enthusiasts, if you are in the Rila area it would be a crying shame not to try these awesome trails.

For my stag weekend in Borovets, we did a combination of down hill trails and easy forest pathways. We ended up extending our tour as we were all loving it so much. Our guide was lovely; I am rubbish with names but I think she was called Milana. Anyway she was really knowledgeable; great with the guys and of course super fit.

On a European Bachelor vacation with a group of pals. We decided to have a few days in the National Park and stayed at Samokov hotel. We are all keen outdoor enthusiasts so we ended up booking quite a few activities through Go Borovets agency. Biking was the highlight for me. We had a tailor-made tour with a guide and we stayed out pretty much for the whole day and had lunch on the summit. It was awesome. If you guys are ever in the States keep in touch and we will repay the experience. Turn and burn!
