Why go on a Bulgaria Tour?
Bulgaria lies in the southeast corner of Europe on the sandy Black Sea Coast – which boasts bands of stunning beaches and picturesque bays. It is a land of contrasts with high mountains, plains, and beaches. There is a lot for tourists to do in a Bulgaria tour. Lovers of mountains can hike up Rila Mountain and Trigrad Gorge, while couples and families looking for some fun and relaxing activities can visit Golden Sands. Travelers who are fond of nature and iconic landmarks can also have a grand time exploring The Devil’s Throat Cave, which will take visitors on an awe-inspiring journey through the underground.
Home to the legendary Orpheus and Sparticus, Bulgaria is a country with a rich and fascinating history. It has been invaded, conquered, and settled by Greeks, Romans, Turks, Byzantines, and Scythians, all of whom left incredible marks on the landscape. There’s literally something for everyone to do in this superlative land! The entire time, you’ll be wondering why you didn’t go on a Bulgaria tour sooner.
When is the best time to travel?
Bulgaria has a temperate climate with cold, damp winters, and hot, dry summers. The months of April to mid-June is an excellent time to visit. The weather is good, the theatres and other cultural venues are in full-swing, and low-season rates still generally apply. The months of mid-June to early-September are ideal for hiking and festivals, but it’s also the peak holiday season and temperatures are generally high. September is probably the best time to visit, when autumn trees are glorious, fruits and vegetables are plentiful, and when tourists are starting to head back home.
