Mountain bike in Kresna Gorge

Mountain bike in Kresna Gorge

per person

Riding a bike into the amazing Bulgarian nature is a great pleasure! The combination of sport activities and rest will refill you with a lot of energy, and we’ll make sure that you will have time for relax as well.

The tendency in the last year is more and more people to prefer using a bike – both as transportation in the city, and for exploring wild places in the nature. Definitely this way our footprint on the nature is less, and we could stay in shape 🙂

Besides the amateur cycling there is an extreme version for advanced bikers for which special equipment and excellent biking skills are required as the riding routes are rough and rocky.

The program we are offering is in the beautiful Kresna gorge nature, combined with visits of lots of small Bulgarian villages.

Additional suggestion: one of the days could be replaced with rafting, or the program could be extend with one more day.

From Padesh village we climb over an asphalt road which passes to a dirt one, and finishes at Deboshnitza village. The route goes through the side ridge of the mountain and is extremely airy and beautiful. We’ll be accompanied with Rila and Pirin mountains and while passing through several picturesque villages.
