9 - Bah Humbug 3 - Go Hiking in Bulgaria

Get away from it all Hiking in Bulgaria. Bulgaria is a hiking paradise, a small country with a lot of great Alpine type mountains. Pyramidal peaks and steep arĂȘtes divide magnificent corries with cobalt blue glacial lakes. And not a flashing santa hat in site!
