-    Kalofer, at the foot of the Balkan Mountains

You will no doubt be surprised by the wealth of the country and the diversity of cultural and natural sites. For more information, take a look at the destinations listed below.

We remind you that the proposed trips are created by our team. Feel free to contact us if you wish to make corrections to either the route or its duration.

Thoughts from Balkania Tour:
A lot of the inquiries we receive ask about the cultural heritage of Bulgaria, and we have put focus into this. This is the reason that we decided to create this tour in addition to the Voyage with a taste of Bulgarian traditions, but it can be said that this theme is covered more extensively in this trip. This trip will give you more ideas and direction for your Tailor-Made Request inquires. Needless to say, you can see how numerous and varied the sites that away you in this journey are, which you will probably need to choose from to balance out the days. We recommend an additional two days in the Rhodope Mountains.

The accommodations are one of the strengths of this trip, with its selection of guest houses, family hotels and monasteries, allowing you to get closer to the native population. This, we believe, is without a doubt the best way to explore Bulgaria for more contact and proximity to the warm and hospitable locals.

Have a nice trip through Bulgaria in the lines that follow!
