Hidden Bulgaria

Hundreds of thousands of travellers descend on to Bulgaria every year; in fact they come all year round. From the summer sun of Golden Sands or Sunny Beach on the Black Sea coast to the snow capped mountain resorts of Bansko, Borovets and Pamporovo there is something for everyone.

This being said there is a large amount of Bulgaria hidden away that hardly any travellers has discovered and enjoyed. This area of Bulgaria is the rolling foothills at the bottom of Bulgaria’s mountain ranges, a place full of history and intrigue that offers the perfect relaxing holiday.

The foothills of Bulgaria are a place where many have lived for thousands of years; the reasons for this are simple. This area of Bulgaria offers fast flowing water that descends from the mountains, forests where animals roam free and fertile land for growing.

Today many people still live off the land in the many villages found in the foothills of the Bulgarian mountain ranges such as Zhrebichko in the foothills of the Rhodope Mountains.

For travellers the hills are a hidden dream, a place where you can go walking in unspoilt lands that time have forgotten and sample the true culture of Bulgaria in old villages that have been left behind in the advance of society.

The beauty of the hidden Bulgaria is that there are mountainous ranges across the country so the options open to travellers wishing to visit are great. Whether you wish to sample rocky hills, rolling hills, or simply walk through the forests of Bulgaria there are so many places available it boggles the mind.

The people of Bulgaria know of her hidden secrets and are known to go up into the hills on a regular basis for walks and to enjoy time with family and friends. The question is why has no one from outside of Bulgaria has cottoned on to the fact?

If you like orienteering, adventure holidays such as biking and climbing, or simply want to have an enjoyable walk in unspoilt lands that offer breath taking views then a trip to the foothills of Bulgaria is for you.
