It is hard to imagine that there are still places in Europe untouched by the breath of civilization. Bulgarian villages and monasteries have managed to maintain the local traditions, crafts, folklore, architecture and charm.
“Bulgaria’s Halcyon days” is an exciting rural and active tour revealing some of Bulgarian highlights seen through a pilgrimage walk to the most important Orthodox sanctuary in the country – Rila Monastery; a bicycle ride with views to the white-capped peaks of the UNESCO protected Pirin National Park; a slow-train experience to the remote areas of Rhodope Mountains and through authentic home-made dishes that will send you back to your childhood. Experience rose-picking workshop and rose-jam preparation in the Rose Valley and learn more about the Ancient Thracian Civilization and its Golden Treasures.
