What you'll do

I will come early in the morning to pick you up, I will have in the car fresh traditional Bulgarian breakfast for you, in addition to plenty of water, snacks, some fruit and Bulgarian waffles.

Our first stop will be a village called Krushuna more specifically a park called Maarata.
There we will spend 1-2 hours gazing at endless waterfalls, peaks, a river and filled with water caves.

Our next stop is the 60 meter high, incredible Bulgarian cave with 70,000 years of human habitation, called Devetashka cave.
This definitely does not look like a classic cave, but more like the inside of a huge mountain. The ecosystem is home to many birds whose sounds make the experience simply magical along with the small river that flows inside.

Our next stop is Lovech, where we will have an amazing Bulgarian style LUNCH in a traditional old Pub located in the old parts of Lovech. After, we will go trough the famous Lovech bridge where you have HUGE variety of Bulgarian souvenirs to buy, you will also see an old Roman fortress from distance

Our next stop is the stunning Saeva Dupka cave. This is a 3.5 million years old cave considered to be among the most beautiful ones in Bulgaria. There you will see many beautiful and unique formations that resemble scenes from an Indiana Jones movie. A professional guide will get us trough the cave and will explain to us it's history and more.

I really enjoyed today. Petar was friendly and accommodating from the very start. He is wise to choose the furthest location to start and drive to see the other sights in the direction of our return home. We had good conversation. Petar is very easy going and has a nice perspective on life and nature! I enjoyed each and every stop. I enjoyed lunch which included some Bulgarian dishes I had not yet tried while here. Petar also really planned the timing of the day well...even with all the pictures I wanted to take, we still were on time getting back to my home this evening. I feel privileged to have seen some of natures wonders here in Bulgaria! Thank you Petar!

Got to see the coolest stuff you wouldn’t get to see from your typical big guided tour. A really personal and well thought out plan for the whole day, from breakfast and lunch to seeing the views from unique places. Fantastic time would absolutely do it again.
