1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your holiday?

The variety of terrain walking through the Seven Rila Lakes; forests, mountains, frozen lakes, granite, ice and snow, and the warm welcome from everyone I met along the way.

2. What tips would you give other travellers booking this holiday?

The extremes of weather were surprising! light layers essential, as is a water system that wont freeze.

3. Did you feel that your holiday benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?

Yes. We stayed at a family run independent guesthouse, spent our days alongside local guides, and anything not included in the price (ie. lunch, drinks etc) were locally made (and delicious).

4. Finally, how would you rate your holiday overall?

Fantastic. It was strenuous at times, but everything was so well planned and organised that I had nothing to think about other than where to put my feet, which left me so so relaxed.

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your holiday?

To be able to see & enjoy the country in the snow which would not have been possible without snow shoes.

2. What tips would you give other travellers booking this holiday?

Be aware of the ages of other participants. If they are 20 - 30 years younger, there may be issues on fitness.

3. Did you feel that your holiday benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?

It certainly benefited local businesses such as the lodgings we stayed in & the local huts. Because it was a local business, it was still able to run with small numbers of people. This wouldn't have been possible with UK companies.

4. Finally, how would you rate your holiday overall?

The pace was hard for me & we needed a few minutes to become familiar with the use of snow shoes.
