Julian Perry was born and raised on the southeast coast of England, but for the last 20 years has spent most of his time in the Bulgarian mountains, where he now runs a specialist eco-tourism company, Balkan Trek, organising walking and wildlife-watching holidays. Julian’s passionate interest in the flora, fauna and culture of Bulgaria has quickly gained him recognition as one of the leading authorities on the region. His photographs and articles have appeared in a variety of newspapers, magazines and other publications, and he is also the author of The Mountains of Bulgaria: A Walker’s Companion, the first ever English-language guidebook to long-distance hiking trails in Bulgaria. When not writing or guiding groups, Julian’s greatest pleasure is exploring the wildlife of the Rodopi Mountains in the company of his young son.
A guidebook to 12 multi-day treks in Bulgaria's highest and wildest mountain ranges in the Pirin, Rila and Central Balkan national parks. The treks are aimed at fit, experienced mountain walkers, with steep ascents and exposed scrambles. The routes range from 7 to 61km and include a full-day ascent of Mount Vihren.
