DURATION AND ITINERARY
Arrival at Sofia Airport and transfer to a hotel in the mountains. Free time and relaxation followed by a lavish dinner.
Day 2A strong breakfast to get you started, followed by a short instruction session by our team leader. Then you jump on the bikes and head to the hills. Next, around 13:00 it’s time for lunch and a short break. After – more hills and beautiful views. Finally you will reach either a hotel or a traditional Bulgarian mountain hut where you will experience more of the famous Bulgarian hospitality, have dinner and relax.
After breakfast you will get on your bikes and head up the mountain for one more day full of cool paths, more adventurous challenges (depending on level and experience), nice lunch and stunning views. In the end a new hotel or a mountain hut will be waiting for you with treats and dinner.
Can you smell it already? Maybe you can feel a slight change from the fresh pine scented air of the mountain to a more light, salty and exciting smell? You are now getting closer to the Black sea! After yet another day of exciting trails, paths, invigorating tastes (maybe some wild fruits?) you will arrive at the seaside. Golden beaches, wavy seashore, deep blue sea. Relax, enjoy a tasty dinner and it’s time to relax and celebrate your achievement of crossing the biggest mountain range in Bulgaria in order to reach the sandy beaches. And oh well, a little party never killed nobody 😉 Enjoy the moment without any worries. The next day is…well, special.
We love the mountains but we also love the sea. That’s why we have planned something special for you. A whole day spent by the seaside including exploring cultural sites, swimming, chilling on the beach. For those who need even more adventure and adrenaline – jetski, water ski, wakeboarding, inflatable attractions, boat trips and much more!
Transfer to Burgas airport (short trip) and time to say goodbye.
But here in Bulgaria we don’t say ‘goodbye’ we say ‘Do-vij-da-ne’, meaning until we meet again.
And that’s what you will hear from us because we believe that our trips create not only great memories but also lasting friendships.
WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW
Best Time of the Year
July until mid September is a great time for this tour. The ride on the mountain ridge takes you through paths and forests where the temperatures are moderate and pleasant for riding. You will feel the cool forest air until you can finally sense the salty breeze of the sea.
Day 1: Hotel Bozhentsi ot Family Hotel Balkanci (we reserve our right to change the hotel in dependence to the ability of the hotels or weather forecast for the region). All our guests are accommodated in a double room. Any changes might be subject to additional charge depending on the area and hotel requirements.

Day 5 and 6: a hotel by the seaside.
Breakfast and dinner are at the hotel, lunch is at the typical taverns or small restaurants in the forest.
Don’t worry you can eat peacefully with the riding gear on!
While your adventure is mainly focused on getting out there and riding as hard as you can (or want) we have also considered your experience beyond the ride. On this trip you will get to know famous cultural and historical sites, to explore local culture and traditions and to discover famous sites, an essential part of both Bulgarian and European cultural heritage.

What Should be Paid Extra
Insurance (mandatory) , alcohol, flying tickets. If you are a pro rider and would like brand new tire – you can purchase one for only 55 euros in advance.
As we do understand the bother of flying and carrying your own gear we could rent equipment for riding, just let us know in advance of your sizes so we could prepare in advance. Renting gear per day is charged 45 euros per person.
The first one you need to get in your homeland before you leave as a regular tourist insurance for traveling abroad – it’s a standard procedure but it’s mandatory to get it from your homeland or current place of stay before you fly.
The second insurance – you can get insurance on the bikes for bike damage during the tour – the insurance is charged 45 euros per riding day per bike, in the Adventure Tour you have 4 riding days – therefore it would be 180 euros in total if something gets broken on the bike.
Otherwise you don’t pay insurance but at the end of the tour whatever is broken needs to be paid as we want to keep the motorcycles tidy and clean for each next tour.
This tour is only available from July to mid September!
