Crusade of Varna - Jagiellonian March

6 Days Moderate 200 MLSAVG 33 MLS

Crusade of Varna - BIKE AND KAYAK TOUR.
Moderate terrain, varying road surfaces for cycling and diverse kayaking places - the Black Sea, Kamchia River and the Lake of Conevo. We cycle by the ruins of the medieval fortresses along the Provadia River Canyon and find out the preserved Muslim and Christian heritage of the region. Once we reach Balkan foothills we’ll change the bicycles with kayaks to pass the beautiful Conevo Lake which occupies Luda Kamchia Gorge. Then we gently paddle amidst mountain scenery, floodplain forests and the lonely beaches of Bulgaria. We’ll see majestic landmarks en route such as Madara Rider – UNESCO site, The Wonderful Rocks, the gorgeous Tombul Mosque, Ovech Fortress, Kamchia UNESCO reserve, quaint villages, unspoiled seaside nature and the fascinating city of Varna.
This exciting tour follows the medieval route of the last European crusaders to Varna in XV century and commemorates the Battle of Varna, which took place on 10 November 1444. The aftermath was that the defeated European Christian army failed to prevent turning the Byzantine Constantinople into the splendid Ottoman Istanbul, which happened 8 years later.
