The Villages of Rhodopes


4-day village to village: Yagodina – Trigrad – Mugla – Gela – Shiroka Luka. Navigation tools and planing support included. Please add your dates to the Order Notes at Checkout



Walking through the green hills of the Western Rhodopes, from one village to another, is the essence of this tour. Rhodopes are the largest mountain range in the country, a region rich in biodiversity as well as with preserved rural environment. The routes are medium difficulty, the terrain is not too rocky or steep like in Pirin, for example. Encounters of local cultural and traditional sights are part of the experience. The route is available between May and October.

The main sights along the way are the Yagodina Cave and Buynovsko Gorge, the Trigrad Cave and Gorge, the architectural reserve of Shiroka Luka (Shiroka Laka) – an old village that preserves some of the traditions in the architecture, but also the folklore and the culture of the region.
