Biking in Bulgaria

We believe a biking tour is a great adventure that stimulates your mind and keeps your body alive. Our cycling tours allow customization and a comfortable time margin for personal detours and stops! In between, and afterwards, you can enjoy local cuisine and any other outdoor activities you like. We always try to avoid the congested tourist areas in favor of Bulgaria's more secluded regions, sheltering ancient historical sights, splendid scenery, and natural wonders. We thoroughly research each route to be sure we take you on the best back roads and footpaths.

 


Biking tours in Rhodope mountains

Rhodope mountains, the most lyrical Bulgarian mountains, are located in the most southern part of the country. Although their average altitude does not exceed 1000m, the Rhodope mountains offer some of the finest hiking in Bulgaria. Their mild oval forms with lush highland meadows and aromatic pines and spruces exist together with deep river gorges, fantastic caves, strange natural sculptures, and picturesque untouched villages. Some 15 natural reserves under UNESCO protection with abundant wildlife, flora and fauna, can be found here.

Biking tours in Balkan Range

The Central Balkan National Park, located between the Valley of the Roses and the Danubian plain is nestled in the central and higher portions of the Balkan Range. Its rounded ridges and high peaks alternate with deep canyons, vertical rock faces and caves. It is the home to the largest number of high mountain waterfalls, among which the highest in Bulgaria - Raiskoto Praskalo waterfall , and the location of the deepest precipice cave in the country. The caves and canyons, the rock faces and cliffs are inhabited by endangered species of bats, birds, and a variety of other wildlife, as well as various rare and beautiful plants many of which native to these mountains.
