Adventures are suitable for people without prior knowledge of the river and water sports. These programs visit less popular but very beautiful natural attractions in Bulgaria.

 

The Vit River - located in the central part of northern Bulgaria. The staring point of the program is village of Dermantsi, which is an hour and a half drive from Sofia in the direction of Varna. The closest towns to the start are Lukovit, Zlatna Panega, Yablanitsa, Lovech and Pleven. The final of the two-day program is village of Sadovets. The route along the Vit River is one of the most beautiful in Bulgaria. It passes along imposing rock formations, historical monuments, natural arches and caves that can be easily reached during the trip. The adventure can be combined with abseiling in natural rock wells and swimming in underground rivers. The overnight accommodations for a two-day program can be in a camp or a hotel. The best season for this program is the months May and June. Often at the end of June the water level of the river drops dramatically and it is not suitable for kayaking.

These programs we offer for two or more days.

 

The Osam River located in central northern Bulgaria is more high-water than the Vit River. The trip is one-day and starts from village of Umarevtsi, close to town of Lovech. The route passes along the natural phenomenon Devetaki cave whose front part is easily to be visited. The final of the water trip is village of Alexandrovo. The two-day adventure in this part of Bulgaria can continue to the waterfalls and the caves of the Devetaki karst plateau.
