Rhodopes - the hidden gem of Bulgaria
5 - Excellent
  • Thomas Petersen
“Following our positive impressions of Bulgaria from our first tour with this local travel specialist, we decided to opt for a self-guided experience, visiting this time one of the most remote regions of the country, close to the border with Greece. Naturally we booked this one with them too. Again the whole organization went very smooth. All local transfers were on time. The navigation materials we were given were very accurate and never let us down. We felt completely safe at all times, although on some of the hikes we didn't meet any other tourists at all. The whole experience walking unguided turned out to be one of our most memorable holidays ever. I dare to say we experienced the rural side of Bulgaria in one of the best possible ways, enjoying also great landscapes of uninhibited mountain ranges, isolated back roads, caves, gorges, rivers, meadows and dense forests. Local hosts have been most welcoming and food was really delicious. We were taken care of with hospitality and treated well during all breakfasts and dinners (especially in Lyaskovo village!). Definitely a place worth visiting before it gets popular.”

“Kafu the guide made all the right choices. He was instrumental in moving things along. Fantastique group on the tour. When Kafu didn't know something he said so. His energy remained high throughout the trip. Lots of sights and sounds and tastes. It filled the mouth and the eyes and the ears and the nose. And, most important, it filled the head.”
Amazing tour!

“A great overview of eight Balkan countries with the perfect balance of organized activities and free time. Our guide Anton was the best - organized, calm and had a great sense of humor. I highly recommend. This was my first tour with this local travel operator and I will definitely be booking more tours with them.”

Bulgaria - Tour Highlights and Travel Tips

A trip to this Balkan nation offers attractions as diverse as its geography. With mountains and rivers calling out to the hiker and sunny beaches along the Black Sea luring the sun-bathers to its shores, this country truly offers something for everyone who is looking for an amazing vacation. Bulgaria’s cultural history is as varied as its attractions, with a history that includes the Greek, Ottoman, Slavic, and Persian peoples it is no wonder that a colorful history has produced such a fun-loving culture where the nightlife is as vibrant as any you could ask for along these Black Sea shores.

Tour Highlights

  • Sunny Beach is the place to be, with over 130 restaurants, and 800 hotels boasting of 300,000 rooms, as well as some of the most beautiful beaches, and beach goers, along the Black Sea coast.
  • Visit during the first week of June and take part in the Rose Festival, watch the rose parade, and maybe even meet the Rose Queen herself.
  • Want to see a cathedral that can accommodate 10,000 people at a time? Visit the St. Alexander Nevsky Cathedral in Sofia!
  • Smaller in size, but rich in history, the Bulgarian Orthodox Church features frescos that date to the 10th century for your consideration.
  • Take a hike to see the Seven Rila Lakes in the Northwestern Rila Mountains. Visit in July or August for the most favorable weather conditions.
  • For winter fun, try skiing or snowboarding in Bansko, just outside of Sofia. With ski season running from December to March there is plenty of time to schedule a vacation.

Travel Tips

  • For a change of pace, try taking a bike tour of Sofia, it is an active way to enjoy the beautiful scenery.
  • Public transportation is substandard, private busses, or taxis are a safer bet to get you where you need to be, when you need to be there.
  • Trains are available to get you from village to village along the Black Sea coast, but be prepared for delays.
  • Though slow, the trains can be comfortable. For a longer trip, try a sleeper car and travel in true comfort along the coast.
