Plateau Cycling

Bike vacations in Bulgaria and Romania

Plateau Cycling organizes Eastern Europe bike excursions in the Black Sea region, shared between Bulgaria and Romania. Our carefully crafted cycling tours in Eastern Balkans immerse the traveler in mild plateau landscapes, stunning canyons, the sea horizon, the delicious local fresh food and the controversial past, left by Greeks, Romans, Byzantines, Bulgarians and Ottomans.

We strive to offer variety of guided bicycle tours or themed tailor-made bike trips in Bulgaria and Romania. Our fascinating cycling tour itineraries reach Danube’s southernmost point and the Danube Delta, the diverse Black Sea coast and weave through the hills of the Eastern Balkan Mountain. You may call it Southeastern Europe’s corner or Eastern Balkans or European Black Sea region, but this area has unique highlights with universal value, bearing witness to Bulgaria's fabulous past: 10 sites of UNESCO World Heritage List, 7 sites of UNESCO World Heritage Tentative List, the humankind's oldest gold from Varna Necropolis and the medieval Bulgarian capitals, where the Cyrillic alphabet and the first Cyrillic literature developed.
