From the bicycle – into the swimming pool!

It’s really nice to work out a little bit, to make your body sweat and then relax in a hot mineral spring. It’s even nicer if you don’t make these efforts in a gym, but in the open fresh air and in the beautiful nature. But the best of it all is if you experience it in a good company sharing together a pleasant evening. And you always talk it through with your friends, and then postpone it … and nothing really happens. Leave all the organizational troubles to us! We offer you a 2-day cycling tour in the beautiful Teteven Balkan: roads with little traffic and with moderate ascends and descends, ancient beech forests, small villages, where one can drink a beer without thinking that his driving license can be suspended, Etropole Monastery and the nearby waterfall, an evening of fun and a sound sleep in the village of Ribaritsa, and in the end – complete relaxation in the mineral spring in the village of Chiflik.

So, let’s go!
