A great day in the outdoors just an hour away from Sofia


Dragoman Marsh and Chepan Hill are two beautiful natural sites.
What makes them even more attractive is that they are literally adjacent to each other.

Both sites provide ample opportunities for walking, hiking, birding, or simply enjoying the scenery.

We can start at 11:00 especially if the tour is on weekdays. Other departure times may be discussed.
We will reach the Dragoman area

In the early afternoon, we have coffee/food at a local restaurant (optional)
Then, we will depart to go back to your hotel.

A Recent Review of this tour

This was an excellent tour. Kamen was a great guide with a wide range of knowledge on natural history and Bulgarian culture. He tailored the tour to suit my interests and abilities. Guided by his expert skills I was able to see several new species of birds and reptiles and learn about the ecology of the Dragoman area and the management of natural areas. He was able to answer the many questions I had about life in Bulgarian rural areas. I would highly recommend Kamen as a guide.
