The craft of wine making, the enjoyment of wine drinking and entertaining guests have always been an integral part of the lifestyle of the Bulgarians.
The Koprivshtitsa extension after the Folklore Festival
9 – 12 August 2021
A natural history walking tour based still at your festival hotel. Your experienced mountain guide leader will take you on excursions to beautiful mountain meadows, small streams, lovely mixed forests and high ridges for some stunning views. We shall be looking for mountain flowers, wildlife, birds and those butterflies, still on the wing. The extension will be on half board and we'll have a vehicle at our disposal.
The Great Koprivshtitsa Folklore Festival Tour
5 – 9 August 2021
Every five years the beautiful small mountain town of Koprivshtitsa is host to a
veritable feast of folklore - costumes, music, singing and dancing. The colourful
performances take place on the hills above the town by day, and in the evening
there are often impromptu performances in the cobbled streets and squares. It has
been described as a cross between a pop festival and a medieval fair, certainly it's
an experience not to be missed!
A Taste of Bulgaria Tour
11th-18th September 2021
Our tour takes place during the most exciting time of the year for farmers and winemakers - the harvest, or vintage.
A Bulgarian Sauvignon Blanc has just won the Best in the World Challenge in Los Angeles. To those of us who have experienced the quality and variety of Bulgaria's wines, this comes as no surprise. To those who have not, why not try our Taste of Bulgaria tour, taking place at the time of the vintage and when Bulgarian fruits, vegetables and herbs are at their best.
Here is what a previous Food & Wine Tour participant wrote
Thank you so much for this enjoyable experience. Who could have guessed I'd master some Bulgarian recipes?
The tasting menu in Plovdiv was another highlight, and the winery visit and the freshly caught mountain trout for lunch.
I could go on, and on. Many thanks!
