    Memorable parts? Seeing all these places I had been reading about! I can't pick one memory. Tips? Make sure you have Euros with you. Many places will accept Euros, if you run out of local currency. Local benefits? Yes Overall rating? Amazing!!! (more)Sara Detmer

    Everything was very good. The genuine welcome from every host hotel or guesthouse was excellent. Staying in guesthouses and eating their normal local food. Highlights were Veliko Tarnovo (especially Hotel Gurko), Plovdiv, and the hosts at Boyana Guest House (Vratsa) & Guest House Deshka (Gorno Draglishte) were great fun. (more)Tim Morgan
    Both Plovdiv and Rile were interesting and enjoyable and despite communication problems the two homestays were interesting if challenging and the hosts we very friendly and kind. (more)Rodney Mount

    Memorable parts? Seeing all the beautiful wildflowers. May was a wonderful time of year to be there. Also the very warm welcome we received from local people in the smaller villages. Tips? You need to be aware that the trekking company in Bulgaria promotes the opportunity for solo travelers to save costs by traveling with a couple who've already booked. As you are mainly staying in very small places if someone else books the same dates you are likely to end up spending every evening... (more)Ruth Bradshaw

    Seeing a mother bear come to feed and bringing her cub out with her was the perfect end to the Romanian part of the trip. (more)Joyce Ell
    Excellent trip with small group size as promised by the company. Unspoilt, beautiful countryside and towns with people who have not caught up with the greed of tourism. (more)Anne Higgins
    Brown bear watching vacation in Bulgaria
    From
    US $1,475
    excluding flights
    Memorable parts? Spending time in the bear hides and being able to watch mother and cubs for over an hour. Tips? Be realistic about what wildlife you are going to see; i.e. walking in largish group (12 + guide) and wariness of local wildlife. Definitely take binoculars for watching bears / other wildlife from hide. Local benefits? Use of small village hotel, local driver and nature reserve guides benefitted local people. Because more and more people are visiting the area with... (more)Simon Knock

    The most memorable part of the trip was... walking from Yagodina to Trigrad - the path was easy to follow and the scenery was absolutely breathtaking. To be so high up in the mountains with nature and eventually descend to overlook Trigrad on the way down was amazing. (more)Morven Jenkins
    Walking in the mountains through unspoilt meadows where the only sounds were birdcalls and an occasional sheep bell was balm to the soul. (more)Jo Cohen Jones

    Memorable parts? The totally stunning views, the wild flower meadows and the lovely people. We stayed in some beautiful hotels, only one was a little too corporate for us (Mountain Lake Hotel - we were the only visitors and it was very lonely after all the bustle of the smaller family hotels), - our most favourite ones were the family owned and run hotels that were simply charming and the people could not do enough for us and made us feel really welcome despite the language barrier. Particularly... (more)Ruth Kinsella

    Memorable parts? I hate this question! The whole week was wonderful, and when the group was asked which walk they had enjoyed the most, everyone had the same trouble picking one! This was a walking trip geared towards fit experienced mountain walkers (warning for anyone thinking it is easy hiking in these Bulgarian mountains, read the blurb with care!), so the days were hard with steep climbs and long descents. The rewards were huge, amazing views, great biodiversity and a country that values... (more)Olive O

    €560

    Memorable parts? Climbing Mount Vidran, the wildflowers in the Pirin and Rila Mountains, city tour of Sofia. Evening strolls in the village Govedartsi to soak up the atmosphere. Watching the cows being herded each evening into the village. Friendly Bulgarians. Good Bulgarian food and wine. Tips? Don't underestimate the fitness needed for the walks. Previous vacations, walks have been easier than grading suggested. Not here the grading is more accurate so the strenuous walks are... (more)Mike Wilkinson

    The most memorable was the variety of terrain walking through the Seven Rila Lakes; forests, mountains, frozen lakes, granite, ice and snow, and the warm welcome from everyone I met along the way. (more)Nicola Farrington
    The most exciting part was to be able to see & enjoy the country in the snow which would not have been possible without snow shoes. (more)Alan Reimer

    Memorable parts? Variations of the walks from the rivers forest snow and rock boulders. Tips? Not to book in June as thunderstorms and lighting was against you every day and wet clothes and boots. Local benefits? Just been there on vacations bought in money Overall rating? Quite challenging for all 6 of us. All so altitude took a while to get used to. (more)Paul Molony
