Rural & Eco Tourism
development of rural tourism in Bulgaria has been concentrated
in a few areas of the country, mainly located at natural waters,
around thermal springs and in the mountains. The “traditional”
rural tourism in Bulgaria was somehow "lost" in the meantime. In
Bulgaria at the moment, foreign tourists are mostly interested
in two types of rural tourism: first, in accommodation in the
vicinity of popular tourist destinations (being motivated by the
much lower prices), second, in folklore programmes.
The development of all the other types of rural tourism
(including active nature holidays or participation in farm
activities) is still in an early stage.
Having chosen the village entertainment, a tourist can get
involved in agricultural activities, rides with horses and
carts, craftsmen’s activities like wood processing, carving,
textile, ceramics, weaving, blacksmith activities, etc. If you
are willing, you can take part in cuisine courses or wine
tasting, you can study Bulgarian folklore or watch the local
family and religious celebrations.
The accommodation is usually in the hosts’ own house. Guests can
have their meals on the table together with the hosts.
Traditional local meals are served, along with ecologically
clean natural Bulgarian food and drinks. The tourists can take
part in the preparation of the food, if they want to.
