Join us on our fully supported trip across beautiful Bulgaria. From the Rose Valley to the Black Sea, we will cover 275km in one week. The pace will be gentle, we'll divert from the route to see some sights. There will be vehicle support and the hotel each night is included in the price (B&B basis). When we arrive at the coast, we'll treat ourselves to a night in a luxury Spa resort, you get your own room, no sharing.
A guide will fly with you, the driver will follow in a van with spare fuel on board. The van will also carry our luggage, fresh clothes, spares etc.
Getting your motor to Bulgaria is easy, we have a transport company who will ship your gear for £1 per kg each way. This is a tracked service taking around 10 days. There are various drop-off points in England. We'll collect your equipment on your arrival here.
After arrival in Sofia airport, we'll transfer you (red line on map) to the Rose Valley for your first night's accommodation here. We may have the opportunity for an evening flight from the airfield here.
In the morning we'll get ready to start the flying expedition (blue line on map).
We use Telegram for live tracking (smartphone required) so the driver and guides will know where you are. We'll set a destination for each flight. We plan on visiting a few sites on the way, Shipka Memorial, Buzludja, Thracian tombs, Koprinka Reservoir etc. Bulgaria really is a beautiful country, we look forward to showing it to you. We'll follow the Stara Planina (Old Mountain) range from the Rose Valley to the coast.
The destination landing field is right beside the beach. We will stay the night in a luxury Spa resort with all the facilities to rest our bones and recuperate after the adventure. Time depending, we may have a day to explore/fly the coastline, perhaps the resort of Sunny Beach or the UNESCO heritage fishing town of Nessebar.
