Program

Day 1 (230 kilometers / 143 miles, 3.5 hours )

You will start your adventure in Sofia. In the morning, you will receive your bikes (if such rented) and equipment. You will have a highway ride for around an hour to warm up and then you will ride through one of the most spectacular roads in Bulgaria.

You will pass around Vucha dam. There are plenty of nice curves and stunning views. You can stop for a lunch and rest in a wonderful restaurant on the way. After that, you will get deeper into the Rhodope Mountain. You will pass one of the most famous gorges in the country and you can stop to visit a very beautiful cave. You will overnight in an amazing hotel in the area, where you will enjoy some good Bulgarian cuisine and hospitality.

Day 2

During this day, you will stay in the Trigrad area. You will replace the mechanical horse with a live one. Your day will pass in admiring the nature of the Rhodope from the back of a horse. Do not worry if you are not an experienced rider. You will have an excellent instructor and a perfectly trained animal. When you return from this adventure, you will be able to rest in the hotel and regain your strength.

Day 3 (100 kilometers / 62 miles, 3 hours)

After a good Bulgarian breakfast, your adventure will continue. You will be able to visit one more of the local amazing sights- the cave Devil’s throat. It is not a typical cave at all and full of legends and stories. In it, you will feel the might of nature.

Then you will continue the ride through some wonderful small villages and towns. Your final destination is a hotel on a small pike. From it, you will have a very nice view of the surrounding nature. In the evening, you will have a short ride to the National Observatory Rozhen. If you are lucky with the weather, you will be able to observe the night sky through the most powerful telescope in Bulgaria and admire the beauty of the Universe.

Day 4 (130 kilometers / 81 miles, 3 hours)

In the morning, you will continue the journey towards the second biggest city in Bulgaria, Plovdiv. But before you get there, you will have plenty of stops at famous Bulgarian sights. The first one is so-called the Wonder Bridge. It is a natural phenomenon, created only by the force of the water.

Later on, you will visit two historical sites, important Bulgarian medieval heritage. One is a fortress and the other is the second biggest monastery in Bulgaria. You will be introduced to Bulgarian history and will be prepared for the cherry of the day, Plovdiv. It is one of the oldest constantly inhabited cities in Europe-more than 8000 years of human evolution.

You will park the bikes in front of the hotel where you will overnight. It is located in the historic part of the city. You will change clothes and start exploring this amazing place. You will visit monuments from the Romans, the medieval Bulgarians, the Byzantines, and the Ottomans. It is not a chance that the city was elected for Cultural Capital of Europe. The evening you can spend in the area called “the trap”. It is full of small restaurants, craft breweries, and clubs. Very vivid and very artistic.

Day 5 (130 kilometers / 81 miles, 2 hours)

This is the day when you will fly. In the morning, you will ride directly to the Central Balkan Mountain. You will park the bikes and get to the chairlift, which will take you to around 2000 meters altitude. From there you will jump and paraglide. Of course, you will not be alone. It will be a tandem jump. You will have a highly professional instructor. Your job will be just to enjoy it.

You will observe the Thracian valley from up there. The flight will be around 20 minutes. In the end, you will have amazing memories and great pictures.

Please note that this activity is very sensitive to the weather conditions and unfortunately, they can change at the last minute. The group will be staying in touch permanently with the instructors so you can adapt as best as you can.

Bultrips promises you that this is a great experience and you will remember it.

After the jump, you will continue the ride to a town, which is like a time machine. Koprivshtica is an architectural reserve and it is perfectly preserved since the 19th century. Despite the beauty and the unique atmosphere, the town is extremely important for the Bulgarians because in it the revolution against the Ottomans started. You will learn a lot about those events and the Bultrips team will do their best to present this part of Bulgarian history in the most neutral way possible.

You will overnight in this amazing place.

Please note, that it is possible on this day to ride straight back to Sofia and skip Day 6. If you have a limit in time, Bultrips can recalculate the tour. Just let Bultrips know.

Day 6 (130 kilometers / 81 miles, 2 hours)

Unfortunately, this is your last day on the tour. After breakfast, you will head back to Sofia. You will make a little detour, so you can see as much as possible.

You can stop at one of the few preserved, unfortunately in very bad condition, churches from the late Roman period. Also, if you have the interest, you can stop at a reconstruction of a settlement from the Stone Age, 7th millennium BC and you can learn about those prehistorical cultures, who lived in the lands.

The whole way you will ride to a great road, next to the Central Balkan mountain. You will see some very beautiful landscapes.

In the afternoon, you will get back to Sofia. Hotel is not included, because Bultrips does not know what your plans will be. Airport transfer is included, just let Bultrips know when it will be needed. Also, if you need Bultrips' assistance with the hotel in Sofia just let them know.
