All things to do in Bulgaria

Bulgaria is an extremely diverse country given possibilities for leisure, recreation, travel activities, and sightseeing. At the same time, its territory is small, which means that the sights and museums are located very close to each other, and travelling around the country is nothing else but pleasure.

Day trips are easy and affordable from any location. For example, from Sofia (the capital) to Plovdiv is just a 1h 30 min drive, from Sofia to the Greek border is a bit more than 2 hours, and crossing entire Bulgaria from West to East (Sofia to Burgas) is less than 4 hours drive!

In its small territory, our country has a huge variety of natural, cultural and historical, ethnographical, culinary, and wine attractions. We are proud of the four big mountains spreading through our country – Rila Pirin, Rhodopes, and Stara Planina. They are green in the summer, colorful in the autumn, and white in the winter and they offer travel possibilities in every season. The highest peaks of Pirin Mountain have several micro glaciers, which are considered the southernmost glaciers of the European continent. There are also a lot of picturesque and fertile valleys, big navigable and small rivers, crystal clear lakes, the Black Sea coast, and many mineral water springs. So here you will be able to find anything, except jungle and desert.

Day trips from Sofia

Sofia is the largest airport with big tourists flow, and because of that, it offers a choice of group tours at affordable prices. We have daily guaranteed group departures to Rila Monastery, Plovdiv, and Koprivshtitsa, operating all year round.

Day trips from Varna and Golden Sands

Varna airport is located close to the seashore of Bulgaria and is very busy in the summertime. Although the sea has its charm during every season, group day trips are offered only from June to September. If you are staying at the beach resorts near Varna (Golden Sands, Sunny Day, Riviera, St. Constantine and Elena, Balchik, Albena, etc.), don’t worry, there are pick up points from almost every hotel in this whole area of North Black Sea coast.

Day trips from Burgas and Sunny Beach

Burgas is the biggest airport on the South Black sea coast. This region covers also the resorts Sunny Beach, Nessebar, St. Vlas, Sozopol, Pomorie, etc. There are many natural parks and protected areas with untouched nature, so it deserves to make a day trip in this area!
