High Balkan Trail Ride

High Balkan Trail Ride
Mountains Bulgaria

This adventurous trail ride follows part of the famous E-3 hiking Kom-Emine route. The trail features wild mountain landscapes and steep hillsides reaching Balkan highest grasslands, home to wild horses in the summer. If we are lucky enough, we may get to spot a few! You will find yourself captivated by the stunning high mountain views with landscapes stretching as far as your eyes can see. Bulgaria is a stunning country still untraveled and kept well-preserved from the hoards of tourists- you will feel the peace of wilderness around you and the simple happy culture the Bulgarians possess. The ride, offering long days in the saddle, is suitable for confident and experienced riders. There will also be occasions where you need to dismount and lead your horse for short periods (20 – 30 min) – this can be both uphill as well as downhill so you will need to be reasonably fit. We offer a mixture of accommodation types from hotels to guesthouses with locals to mountain huts to allow our fellow riders to experience all aspects of the trip and get to know our country. Part of the enjoyment of this ride is spending time with the local people the last two days on the trail. This will certainly be a trip you will never forget!
