Walking Holidays in Bulgaria

Walking in Bulgaria

Located in the furthest south-east corner of Europe, Bulgaria is a relatively undiscovered walking holiday destination. Many people associate Bulgaria with a ski or beach holiday, but the country has some amazing countryside, mountains and wildlife that is ideal to explore on foot. The Bulgarian people have also managed to preserve an impressive cultural heritage, and traditional life still continues in villages where time has stood still.
