“Rural Bulgaria” is the best choice you can make to escape in the countryside from the concrete jungle and the stress of the modern city. Our easy to moderate hiking treks are nicely combined with overnight stays in traditional villages and guesthouses, set in rolling landscapes. Enjoy the stunning panoramas and walking trails of the Balkan, the Rhodopes (Rodopi), Pirin and Rila mountains, exploring them on foot during daytime. While in the evenings you will feel the spirit of a century-old life and sincere hospitality, combined with delicious local cuisine, based on organic food and home-made drinks (wine and fruit brandy among them).
Although the Bulgarian villages are attractive all year round with each season having its own charm, we still have to comply with the hiking possibilities in the mountains, thus defining the period June-September as being the best one. If you wish to come in May or October we might still be able to confirm the tour but with slight changes affecting some of the hikes. The hiking programme is easy to moderately difficult and leaves enough time to savour the life in each of the villages we stay in along the route.
