The day hikes from Bezbog Hut offer views of some of the most spectacular peaks and alpine lakes found in Bulgaria’s Pirin National Park.

We started from the Gotse Delchev hut at 4631 ft (1412 m) near the town of Dobrinishte by taking the old Soviet-era chairlift to the Bezbog Hut at 7336 ft (2236 m). The first chairlift goes at 8:30 a.m. and the last chairlift down is at 4:45 p.m.

From the Bezobg Hut, we hiked up into the alpine to Polezhan Peak and Popovo Lake, which took about 8 hours.

Alternatively, you can hike from Bezbog Hut to Popovo Lake, which is one of the most popular hikes in Bulgaria and it only takes about 4 hours return.
