Trekking and Rafting – an inspiring vacation
Trekking-rafting vacation, bringing variety, saturation and time for relaxation
Combine the rafting on the river Struma with trekking to the hut. Sinanitsa!
Sometimes we want a long vacation, but we don’t always manage to find enough days off. For this reason, we offer you a trekking-rafting vacation, which with its variety, saturation and enough time to relax, will make you take a break from everyday thoughts and activities.
We combined our favorite rafting on the river Struma and trekking to the hut. Sinanitsa, and for our inspiring vacation we will need three days 🙂
The action plan is as follows – on Friday (or another suitable for the group) we gather at the rafting camp Adventure Net. After a proper welcome from our team, we start preparing for a rafting descent. You can learn more about the rafting adventure from the rafting program and the article The most frequently asked questions about rafting!?.
After the fun-extreme moments of the descent on the river Struma, we will have a few hours to relax and eat at the base.
In the afternoon our vacation will take us to the hotel. Vihren – with organized transport, all together. We are already in Pirin Mountain and in the evening we will have a short analysis of our upcoming trekking, and a nice quiet evening in the atmosphere of the hut. Prepare questions for your guide – he can tell you funny stories and legends about the area 🙂
Our second day will start early in the morning, and a nice and exciting trek awaits us. At the very beginning of our transition we will be able to enjoy the beautiful Muratovo lake – there we can make a break for breakfast 🙂 During this day we planned to cross Banderishka and Sinanishka gates, reach Sinanitsa peak, enjoy the amazing views, descend to x. Sinanitsa, evening relaxation.
Depending on the desire of the group, it is possible to return on the third day by an alternative route. As well as there is an option to visit warm mineral baths – so the swimsuit should be with you 🙂 An additional option in the program is a visit to Grandma Deshka – Gorno Draglishte, where we can enjoy amazing local dishes 🙂

Duration of the hike second day: about 6 hours, with ascent of Sinanitsa peak and descent to the hut
