First Official WOR Tour in Bulgaria

Tour Review

You have probably already seen some of my social media posts, extolling the virtues of this fabulous off road destination. Bulgaria and its people's hospitality and friendliness is second to none.

The riding out there is fabulous for any level of ability, the vastness of the place and unrestricted riding available is just insane.

You will be truly spoiled by the extreme wilderness on offer, literally covered in endless routes from single track, to wide open plains, the biggest hill climbs you have ever seen, to the most beautiful deep forests.

With over 80,000 sq. hectares of open access land on the doorstep and mountains up to 3000 meters. No gates, only a few rules and No bike licences are needed so the kids can ride too! (height and ability restrictions apply)

This is why our first WOR tour abroad destination is to be held here.

To wet your appetite further, here is a video from my last visit.


Why BBS is our chosen partner

We chose BBS Adventure / Bulgaria bike shipping as they are a well-established company with whom I have travelled to Bulgaria several times.

They are a fully package tour licenced and regulated company (no other enduro tour company has this as far as I can tell).

They have excellent, first aid trained expert mountain men as your guides for your time in the Bulgarian wilderness. Venci is the hub of all route knowledge in the area, hard enduro specialist and Fury, our main trails and adventure guide. Both incredibly talented, hard as nails, yet humble family men. Perfect guides for the Bulgarian trails.

No other tour company offers this level of safety cover.

Ride your own bikes!

BBS can transport your own bikes / spares / rider kit, from the UK to Bulgaria from 2 secure locations in the UK, Lancashire and Bedfordshire. Fully secure metal crated and insured for transport.

BBS would need your bikes 2 weeks before the start of the holiday in Bulgaria and the bikes will arrive home 2 weeks after the event.

Rental bikes.

If you do not want to transport your own bikes, they can rent to you the latest model SWM RS 300 and 500 models fully spec'd up for your week in the mountains.


Each night you will stay in the fabulous Club Yanakiev 4 * Hotel, with indoor pool, spa and massage facilities. Bed and breakfast and evening meals will be provided.

This hotel is famous in Bulgaria, as it's owned and run by the Yanakiev family, Legends for being an ex-world MX champion and facilitators of the World rally championships in Bulgaria. A beautiful hotel, with an incredible trophy cabinet, friendly staff, great food, large spacious modern rooms, secure underground car park for the bikes and a great location high in the mountains in Borovets main ski resort.

The Riding - your holiday

This is not a hard enduro event. This is a holiday, a dirt bike holiday, probably the best dirt bike holiday you could ever imagine.

A relaxed, fun filled week of off road action. All abilities can be catered for. For those who need to be tested with the terrain, do not worry we will have a few surprises each day for those who like a challenge. You will NOT be disappointed!

For those who are here to ride not tested. To enjoy the experience of riding in a far off land and training from myself. Bulgaria is beautiful, never opening a gate, riding for hours with amazing views and terrain to match. You will also not be disappointed.

We have something for everyone, whatever your preference.

As part of each days ride I will be offering the chance to come to my "Steve Island's crazy training days." Wheelie school, Hill climbs, techniques etc. Whatever's your poison, I am here to help.

I will also be riding with each group on alternate days offering tips, advice and laughs. Look out for some last minute surprises!!

Be in our film.

We will also have one day dedicated to making a film with the best in the business, Future Studios.

If you would like to be part of the film, get some great footage for yourselves, learn some film making techniques, this is the day for you! Professional / licenced drone pilots and amazing video film makers.
