Bulgarian Walk, Wine and Rakia Tour

If you are active and want to ry the wines and rakias and the beautiful west regions Bulgaria there is a tour of nine days on offer..... Although mainly a wine and sightseeing tour there will be plenty of opportunity to try rakia as many wine producers have rakia making facilities as part of the process.

We'll visit some of the best wine-producing regions in the country and will taste typical Bulgarian high-quality wines like the Mavrud, Melnik and Gamza brands, and will also sample some excellent brands of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Traminer and Chardonnay.

There will be also a chance for walking in the mountains to admire natural scenery and beauty, as well as for visiting historical sites.

And you should definitely try the original local grape and plum brandies (‘rakiya'), usually served as a starter (‘aperitif') combined with abundant salads of fresh vegetables and white cheese, another solid Bulgarian tradition.
