Full description

Explore the striking Belogradchik Rocks on a guided day trip from Sofia. Walk among these unique rock formations perched atop a hilly outcrop, enjoying panoramic views of rolling green hills from the top. Learn about how the rocks came to be over 230 million years ago from your licensed guide.

Sit back and relax on a return van ride from and to Sofia, enjoying the countryside views along your way.

See these rock formations, an exceptional natural phenomenon unique to the Balkans, up close as you follow your guide through the rocky outcrop. Steeped in legends and history, these rocks were created in such a way that they offered a natural fortress with a high defensive potential.

Visit the Belogradchik Fortress (at your own expense) to see how these rocks were once used as a natural fortress for many decades. Nominated for the New 7 Wonders of Nature competition, the Belogradchik Rocks were at the top of the list in the category for caves, rock formations, and valleys.

Venzislav is an excellent guide. I don't know where to start. I was picked up on time and travelled in a very comfortable and clean bus. He is also an excellent driver which made me feel safe and comfortable. The day when I subscribed I was the only guest. I think many companies would refuse a single guest. However he accepted and treated a single guest with unbelievable friendliness, thoughtfulness and kindness. We were very lucky and had an excellent weather- 17oC and blue sky - so unussual for january. Venzislav has an excellent knowledge of Bulgarian history and the time spend together was very informative and made me learn so much. The road to the Rocks was unbelievably beautiful. I recommend the trip because such formations in combination with history are rare. I am a world traveler from Chicago, US and this is one of the most impressive trips I have made. The combination of Roman and Byzantine history, the beauty of nature in combination with an excellent company is a must do.
