The white water rafting itself is an experience of a lifetime. Doing it in Bulgaria it will be even more! It’s thrilling, enjoyable and worth every second spent on it!

So now let’s check the 8 reasons why you should choose river rafting in Bulgaria:

1.     White water rafting in Bulgaria is affordable

Not only white water rafting, but almost everything in Bulgaria is affordable. The main reason is that in Bulgaria the currency is leva and not Euro, so 1E = 1.96 leva.

That doesn’t mean that everything is “cheap”, but for a good price you can actually have great value of a vacation or in that specific case of the white water rafting adventure!

2.     The place for white rafting is so beautiful


The best place in Bulgaria for white water rafting is definitely the gorge of Struma River. Get your adrenaline pumping in the beautiful waters of this fascinating river. In about two hours drive from Sofia you can enjoy the breathtaking panorama of the gorge, sense the calm of the nature in contrast with the adrenaline that you will feel.

That’s where our white water adventure takes place.
