Full description

Take a private tour by car along the amazing mountains by the side of one of the biggest rivers in Bulgaria, and see the railway lines and passing trains.  First, stop by a beautiful waterfall and have the chance to explore and walk around it. It is a natural miracle carved out of the Stara Planina. Along the mountain, for thousands of years, the waters of the Iskar River have dug their way into the rock.

Next, head to a very important historical place that is only a few kilometers further down from your first stop. Have the chance to get higher up the mountain and enjoy a picturesque view while learning about the history.

After you have explored and taken some pictures you will stop for lunch surrounded by mountain views. Last but not least, before heading back to Sofia and visit a mountain by the side of a small river that goes into Iskar. See where monasteries were built, and learn more about their history. 

The Iskar Gorge starts from the Sofia Plain, crosses the Balkan, and ends around the town of Cherven Bryag, the total length is 155 kilometers. You will be taken halfway along this road for an unforgettable day tour.
