This tour is a great combination of nature and heritage. It starts at 9 am when the guide will take you from your hotel and you will head to the nearby Rhodopi mountain. Your first stop will be at the remains of the old medieval Asen`s Fortress and its church. It is situated in a very vivid place from where you can see amazing panoramic views and take astonishing photos.
After that, you will continue to the small mountain village of Bachkovo where you will visit the second biggest monastery in Bulgaria- Bachkovo monastery. It is famous for the icon of Virgin Marry, dating back to the 14th century, which is taught to be miraculous and thousands of people each year come to see it.
Then you will go for a hike in the mountain. The trail starts just next to the monastery. The hiking is with moderate difficulty and takes about 1-2 hours. Finally, you will also have time for a lunch break in one of the traditional local restaurants.
