THASOS ISLAND and RODOPI

8 Days Moderate

Rodopi Mountains are the most extensive mountain range in Bulgaria, covering a vast area in the southern part of the country, and rolling on across the border to the Aegean sea. A hauntingly beautiful and mysterious region, according to legends this was the home of Orpheus, and his spirit still seems to live on here in the music and culture of the local people. Ancient roads and bridges, fortresses and churches, all serve as reminders to the glorious history. For decenies the access to the area was completely forbidden being part of the so called Iron Curtain between the East and West Blok. This has largely contributed to the preservation of the traditional lifestyles and the wild charm of its forest and rich fauna (brown bears, wolfs and birds) and botany species.


We bike in the western parts of the Rodopi Mountains across big dams and unique Boreal forest. Several days we bike near the border zone where nature is at its best. Through pastures, flower meadows, along dams and tiny hamlets we enjoy our time on two wheels in this little known part of Bulgaria...
