Across the Central Balkan
Mountains Bulgaria

Escape civilization and discover the heart of the Balkan mountain.

On this ride, you will get to ride through one of the most beautiful part of Bulgaria: the Central Balkan National Park. This National Park is one of the largest and most valuable protected areas in Europe. Covering an area of 72,021.07 ha, it is home to many wild animals and over 1,900 different plants (over 130 species of which are listed in the Bulgarian Red Data Book and the World Red List of Threatened Species). 

On the first and last riding days are spent in the valleys, allowing for nice canters. Then, you will go deeper into the National Park, where you can enjoy the shade of the century-old beech trees, the wilderness, and the breath-taking sights of the mountain.
Your riding companion will be a well-trained horse, always willing to work and comfortable to ride.
