Day 3

After a good Bulgarian breakfast, our adventure will continue. We 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 we will continue our ride through some wonderful small villages and towns. Our final destination is a hotel on a small pike. From it, we will have a very nice view of the surrounding nature. In the evening, we will have a short ride to the National observatory Rozhen.

Day 4

In the morning, we will continue our journey towards the second biggest city in Bulgaria-Plovdiv. But before we get there we will have plenty of stops at famous Bulgarian sights. The first one is so-called the Wonder Bridges. It is a natural phenomenon, created only by the force of the water. Later on, we 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. We will park the bikes in front of the hotel where we will overnight. It is located in the historic part of the city. We will change clothes and start exploring this amazing place. We 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 we 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

This is the day when you will fly. In the morning, we will ride directly to the Central Balkan mountain. We will park the bikes and get to the chairlift, which will take us 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. We are staying in touch permanently with the instructors so we can adapt as best as we can.

We promise you that this is a great experience and you will remember it J

After the jump, we will continue our 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 we will do our best to present this part of our history in the most neutral way possible.

We 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 we can recalculate the tour. Just let us know.

Day 6

Unfortunately, this is our last day. After breakfast, we will head back to Sofia. We will make a little detour, so you can see as much as possible. We can stop at one of the few preserved, unfortunately in very bad condition, churches from the late Roman period. Also, if you have interest we 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 our lands. The whole way we will ride to a great road, next to the Central Balkan mountain. We will see some very beautiful landscapes.

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