Description

Are you ready for a mountain biking adventure in the Bulgarian mountains? Join me on this unique 4-day journey in Sredna Gora. We will visit scenic rural areas and ancient Thracian temples and tombs.

This tour is part mountain biking adventure and part guided tour of cultural sites. We will begin our journey in the enchanting town of Koprivshtitsa. Here, we will have a pleasant, fresh climate for biking. We will bike along, passing the beautifully painted historical houses of the town.

During this tour we will visit the Thracian Temple Complex. This complex is a recent discovery, having been discovered by archaeologists in 2000. It is the oldest known royal Thracian complex with a mausoleum. It dates back to the end of 5th and the beginning of 4th century BC.

We will travel off-the-beaten-path as we ride through the Thracian mounds. We will bike through fields of corn, wheat and strawberries. We will bike through a secluded area where we will see some local farmers as they tend to their land.

We will also visit the town of Hisaria, where we can swim in one of the many mineral water swimming pools in town. This is a unique town full of ancient history. Hisaria had a prehistoric settlement before 6th century B.C. It later became a Thracian settlement in the Odryss state. We will be able to learn lots of ancient history and also relax in the mineral water pools, many of which were developed thousands of years ago as healing centers.

This tour features a visit to Plovdiv, which is the second biggest city in Bulgaria. We will do a walking tour through the narrow lanes of the old town. We will see religious temples, roman remnants and museum-houses. Later, we will transfer to the capital city Sofia. Here, we will do another walking tour where we will see all of the beautiful sights this ancient city has to offer.

Book today for a unique mix of mountain-biking and cultural immersion!

I was looking for a local guide for a hike I was planning and came across Explore-Share. They seemed to have good reviews and so decided to give them a try. The experience was very positive and completely happy with their service. I will be using them again for next trip.

Thank you explore-share for a wonderful via feratta experience. We have been wanting to learn for a long time but don't have the facilities in Scotland. The guide Mitja was extremely helpful and knowledgeable, answering all my many questions and providing advice. On the day head to take another group but he quickly arranged another guide Borut, who was brilliant. We had a fantastic morning learning via ferrata at Hvadnik in the gorge. It gave us the confidence to later hire our own equipment and go out in Mojstrana. Altogether a five star + experience. Thank you.

Hello! I have been thoroughly impressed by the service and assistance that explore-share have provided the past couple years in helping to plan my trip to the High Tatras in Poland. I really appreciated the flexibility that they provided in allowing me to rearrange my trip twice owing to covid. They were responsive and communicative throughout. This trip was part of my Stag weekend celebrations and explore-share connected me with an outstanding guide in the form of Marcel - he was an excellent recommendation and we really enjoyed our guided hike in the High Tatras with him. Marcel was an outstanding professional, placed a high focus on preparing well and staying safe, and was also a great guy! Highly recommend. Many thanks and best wishes - Richard

Our first time with Explore-Share. An absolutely fantastic experience from start to finish. Extremely good value, very well organised with attention to detail. We travel widely and this has by far been the best of experiences. Well done to all concerned. We are already looking at booking another trip!
