Bulgaria: Cycling Activity Holiday

A Country of Superb Variations

Ditching the car or public transport and setting off to explore the country by bicycle is an attractive option wherever you go, and a cycling holiday in Bulgaria is no exception. Although not recommended as a way of getting around the busy towns and cities, where traffic can be horrendous and accidents common, cycling is a relaxing and rewarding way to see some of the less populated corners of Bulgaria. Some hostels and guesthouses rent our bicycles to guests for a modest charge but there aren’t many dedicated bicycle rental agencies to be found here. However, the Black Sea resorts have plenty of outlets renting bikes and scooters if you fancy a day out cycling along the coast. Serious cyclists planning a cycling holiday in Bulgaria can of course bring their own bicycles into Bulgaria, and for those looking for an organised trip, there are travel agencies in Sofia and elsewhere who run guided cycling holidays around Bulgaria, visiting monasteries, national parks and pretty villages in remote corners of the countryside that would otherwise be difficult to reach.
