Balkan Rides - Bulgaria

Experience Level

Kingdom of Thracians

5 star rating   27 April 2019

The riding was faster than I expected, given that we also packed in a lot of climbing. The faster paces were all over appropriate terrain and the guide spent a lot of time checking that all the riders were ok and felt safe.

Do you have any comments about the accommodation and food?

Lots of food! We had a lot of typical Bulgarian cuisine which was nice and it was all well prepared and delicious. Some of the hotels were a little dated, but all had good facilities and gave me a good night's sleep. It was especially good to have enough time at the end of the day to use all the pools and fit in a couple of massages during the week.

A great holiday that combines activity and relaxation. The guides were attentive to every detail, got to know us and matched the group to appropriate horses. I have returned home feeling refreshed and full of fresh mountain air.
