Hiking in the Rhodope Mountains in Bulgaria

Hiking trails, mountain villages, caves, natural wonders, itineraries and more in the West Rhodope Mountains. 

Hiking in the area of Trigrad and Yagodina Villages

This is an area of incredible natural beauty and diverse landscape. Bulgaria's most beautiful canyons: Buynovo and Trigrad are located here, as well as the caves Yagodina and Devil's Throat. Pristine forests, flowering meadows, fantastic biodiversity, and wildlife and breathtaking views everywhere you turn.  For those fascinated by history, here you can see the ruins of the Iron Curtain along the border between Bulgaria and Greece. Depending on how much you would like to explore you can dedicate between 2 to 8 days in the area. Contact us to organize a hiking trip for you in the area of Trigrad and Yagodina villages. 

Hiking in the area of Smilyan and Arda 

If you are looking for a hiking destination that combines gorgeous easy hikes near charming villages with arguably the best food in the Rhodope Mountains, then you should visit the area between Smilyan and Gorna Arda. But, beware, you might fall in love with the region and decide to join the growing community of foreigners who now call the small villages their home.  We run a popular 3-day hiking trip in the area every June during the Wild Flowers Festival, but July, September, and October are also great months to visit. 

Some of the popular things to do and see here are:

  • The spring of Arda river 

  • Kaleto Fortress

  • Uhlovitsa Cave 

  • Kom Peak 

  • Nadarska Cave

  • Agushevi Konatsi

Hiking in the area of Belintash, Karadzhov Rock and Haiduktash

Some of the most amazing rock plateaus in the Rhodope Mountains are located here. The imposing rock formations have inspired ancient people to create numerous sanctuaries (some historians believe Belintash is the famous oracle of Dionysos). And once you visit the area you will understand why Thracians people thought the magnificent rocks could be nothing else than God-made. 

Many more hiking trips in the Rhodope Mountains are going to be added to this section of the website soon. Please contact us if you are interested in a hiking trip that is not listed here, we are always happy to customize a trip for you.
