When you get to the hotel, you can change your clothes and climb on the mountain above the hotel, called the Eagle’s eye. Comfortable tourist shoes are recommended.

Day 2 - 175 kilometers / 109 miles / 4 hours

After a nice traditional breakfast, you will continue your adventure by starting your ride east through the Rhodope mountain. After around an hour's ride, you will make a stop. A short walk will bring you to a stunning view. After admiring it, you will continue to the most spectacular medieval bridge in Bulgaria. It was built by the Ottomans in the 16th century and has the creepy name “The Devil’s bridge”. The legend says that the builder won a bet with the Devil for how long it could have been built.

After that, you will continue to an architect reserve called Zlatograd, where you will overnight. The town was a commerce center in the 18th-19th century and you can still feel the atmosphere and walk through the small streets with small traditional craft shops, keeping the traditions from those days.

Day 3 - 210 kilometers / 130 miles / 4 hours

This day will be full of a very nice ride, a huge reservoir, and many historical sites. Your first point of interest will be a religious sanctuary, built on a low mountain pike by the Thracians. In this amazing place, you will be introduced to this interesting civilization inhabiting these lands between the Late Bronze age and the final Christianization of the Roman province Thrace in the late 4th century AD.

This introduction will be important for the future of the trip because you will see some more of the heritage of these people. Your next stop will be such. The great city of Perperikon where you can see how the historical periods overlap each other. This place is famous mostly for the Oracle of Dionis, the god of the wine. This Oracle was one of the most important after that in Delphi, Greece in Antiquity.

After you explore this rare archaeological site we will continue to the second biggest cities in Bulgaria-Plovdiv. The city was the European capital of culture in 2019th. It is one of the oldest and most artistic cities in Europe. You will walk into the historical part of it and will overnight in its heart.

Your next stop will be another time machine-National architect reserve Koprivshtica. This town is extremely important in the Bulgarian Revival period and the struggle against the Ottoman empire.
