Trip Summary

 

This trip is the best way to discover Bulgaria’s many different faces: its picturesque monasteries, traditional villages, cultural landmarks, pristine nature, and hotels offering a warm Bulgarian welcome. You also visit UNESCO sites and other significant places, enjoy dinners in authentic restaurants and get to meet the locals.

The trip starts in the capital Sofia.  Visits to Boyana Church and Rila Monastery – two of the undisputed highlights of Bulgaria – are planned for the 2nd day. Over the following days we drive through 3 mountain ranges – Rila, Pirin and Rhodope. Along the way we visit Bansko, Dobarsko and Bachkovo Monastery. In Plovdiv, Bulgaria’s second largest city, we explore the Old Town, which is a melting pot of cultures and historical monuments.

We continue on through Rose Valley and the Valley of the Thracian Kings and cross the Balkan Mountains at the historic Shipka Pass. In Triavna, Etara, Bojentsi and Arbanasi, we learn more about Bulgaria’s Revival Period (18-19th century) – its architecture, art, and traditions.

In the medieval capital Veliko Tarnovo we feel the spirit of former Bulgarian glories (12-14th C). On the last days of this trip we visit Troyan Monastery and take a classical sightseeing walk around Sofia.

This trip offers several optional walks & hikes, which will also give you the opportunity to discover plenty of Bulgaria’s pristine nature.  A great time is guaranteed on this tour as you’ll be with one of our best English-speaking guides.
