Welcome to the Thrace and Rhodope Mountain region of Bulgaria where a unique family adventure awaits you. This region was inhabited in the past by the ancient tribe of the Thracians, Rhodopes is the birthplace of the legendary Thracian hero Orpheus. His singing and playing were so beautiful that animals and even trees and rocks moved about him. Another deity that the Thracians worshipped was Dionysus, the god of wine and nature. The Thracians believed in life after death and placed the dead kings in tombs together with weapons, jewelry, and horses.
Nowadays, the Rhodopes is still a haunting and mysterious place. Although relatively low, they possess their own distinctive beauty and are an ideal place for a hiking and ecotourism adventure. The Eastern part of the mountain is rarely-visited and was chosen as a pilot area for the Rewilding Europe Program due to its high-quality natural environment.
This holiday is dedicated to discovering nature, including endemic species and Thracian cultural heritage in South Bulgaria and North Greece. A warm welcome, unspoiled nature, and plenty of activities await you!
