ACTIVE HOLIDAYS IN BULGARIA

Bulgaria offers something different for every active traveller. Whether you prefer to immerse yourself in remote, pristine mountain settings or delve into a rich culture and appreciate ancient ruins, religious art, churches, museums and monasteries, Bulgaria has it all.

WALKING HOLIDAYS IN BULGARIA’S BALKAN MOUNTAINS

Sitting on the outer edges of Europe, above Greece and Turkey, Bulgaria consists of various mountain ranges with the most popular walking destinations being in the Balkan Mountains through the alpine meadows of the Pirin and Rila ranges. The Rila range is home to Bulgaria’s highest peak, Musala (2925), a focus on one of our Bulgaria walking holidays.

A walking holiday in Bulgaria will take you back in time as you hike into traditional villages and mountain landscapes free from crowds. Enjoy a self-guided walk through the traditional villages and timeless countryside with our Balkan Mountains Walk. Or join our Bulgaria on Foot for a more challenging guided walk in the Rila and Pirin mountain ranges - an area rich in history and beautiful, natural landscapes.

CYCLING HOLIDAYS IN BULGARIA

Cyclists are also able to appreciate the beauty of the Balkans on our Balkan Mountains cycle holiday. Combine a visit to the Central Balkan National Park with time spent absorbing the local way of life, where wooden carts are still pulled by horse or donkey and farmers make hay with a pitchfork.
