TOUR OVERVIEW
The trip Highlights Of Bulgaria By Bicycle starts and ends in Sofia. It is a bicycle tour that takes 10 days taking you through Sofia, Velingrad, Hisarya and 4 other destinations in Bulgaria. Highlights Of Bulgaria By Bicycle is a guided small group trip that includes accommodation, transport, meals and others.

The storied and beautifully weathered city of Sofia, one of the oldest cities in Europe, welcomes us to Bulgaria. Riding starts in the northern foothills of the Balkans, alongside the Beli Vit River, before climbing up to the Bogoi Pass en route to the village of Chiflik – where a tasty local plum brandy, or two, awaits.

Once over the highest Balkan Mountain pass, the Beklemeto, cruise downhill through the gorgeous forests of the Sredna Gora Mountain and into southern Bulgaria. The sparklingly preserved town of Koprivshtitsa invigorates road-weary legs and sends us on the way across rolling roads to the thermal spa town of Hisarya. For our rest day, we transfer to Plovdiv, "The City of the Seven Hills", where a walk will take us back to antiquity as we discover its Roman amphitheater. A wander along the town's cobblestone streets will lead us to St. Marina Church and an Ottoman Empire mosque.

The journey finishes in a flourishing ride through two spectacular gorges en route to Velingrad, the spa capital of Bulgaria. It's Bulgaria at its unspoiled best, a cache of natural beauty and ancient history, comfortable accommodations, and fresh cuisine in idyllic surroundings!
