Wine Valley & Mountains

Wine Valley & Mountains horse riding trail, combines beautiful scenery. Ancient Thracian and Roman cultural monuments, superb wines and SPA delights!

The trail runs within the surroundings and the higher parts of Sredna Gora Mountains. It is one of the relatively low Bulgarian Mountains. Offering light height variation of ascent and descent, cool beech forests and open soft ridges. Therefore, the wine valley and mountains trail is ideal for horse riding.

The spirits of the Bulgarian rebels, fighting against the Turks, still roam its forests. The small towns hidden in its folds, are a joy to the eye.  The painted houses from the period of the Bulgarian Revival, and thermal springs flow in its foot. Among the ruins of the ancient civilisations of the Thracians and the Roman Empire.

The horses are in excellent condition and very well trained. The tour is recommended for experienced riders. Because a large part of the trail passes through an area that allows riding at a faster pace. On the other-hand, the terrain is not that hard. For this reason, the tour is suitable for a group of beginners as well. Every day there will be an opportunity to prolong the riding time, depending on the wishes of the participants. The tour can be arranged off-season as well with some changes in the route, excluding the highest parts of the mountains. More tours and inspiration, look at our Bulgaria page

The accommodation is at comfortable renovated huts up in the mountains and at first class hotels with thermal swimming pools and wine cellars.
