Here is a rough guide to your holiday based on 7 nights accommodation and 5 days guided riding.
Our tours start the day after you arrive.
Arrival day we unload and prep the bikes for the following days ride.
Average Kilometres = 100+
Average days ride 10 am till 6 pm (but your group can choose early start or late finish)
Meet the bikes, unload and prep them for the holiday. All your personal kit and spares will be transported to the hotel for you. You just put on some rider gear and protection and we ride to the hotel, via the petrol station. Upon the hotel arrival, Check-in, you'll be allocated a room, have a beer, relax. Later in the evening you will meet the guides, have a short safety meeting where you can ask any questions, have something to eat and a pint or 2. We can arrange a BBQ, Hog Roast etc numbers depending (small extra charge may apply). Don't drink too much as you have the 1st days epic trail riding coming.
Rides start at 10 am usually, although you can start earlier or later as your group chooses. We take you on some of our lower routes to get you acclimatised to the terrain and conditions.
You will have a packed lunch but if you see a cafe or would like to stop somewhere just ask your guide.
We ride higher and further, deeper into the forests and higher passes.
Usually we take it easy on this day and take a stunning ride over to Lake Iskar to ride along the beach, have lunch, a play day. It's your holiday, you decide.
The last riding day. Do you want hill climbs? off piste riding, a place to get your favourite holiday photo? River crossings or just take me riding, we take you.
Our last day and night at the hotel. The day starts lazily, with bike preparation and packing for the journey home. You will ride your bikes to the transport hub for loading and we will take all your equipments, spares etc for you. After loading the bikes a taxi will take you back to the hotel where any hotel extras will need to be paid. A last evening meal is arranged at the hotel or we can arrange a visit to one of many Restaurants etc in the village. ( extra charge may apply)
After another hearty breakfast your airport transfer will be awaiting you.

All nationalities require a full passport that must be valid for the intended length of stay. It is your responsibility to have the correct personal documents and to obtain your own visa, if one is necessary, in accordance with the regulations of the country you are to visit. The information below is primarily for UK passport holders, and other nationalities should check with their travel agent or the relevant embassies. We are not responsible for the actions of local immigration and customs officials, whether at points of entry or otherwise, and any subsequent effects.
Europe/Sofia EEST (DST +02:00)
The national currency of Bulgaria is the Bulgarian Lev (BGN), with an exchange rate of approximately 2.26 to the GBP (April 2018).
There are no banks or ATMs once you enter the mountains. There are ATM's and Banks in Samokov and Borovets and some major petrol stations. The Yanakiev Hotel that we use also has an ATM. There is a couple in the arrivals hall at Sofia Airport, but please note that the bank located within the arrivals hall is typically closed at the weekends, so if you plan to exchange cash please make sure you obtain Bulgarian Lev in your home country.
If ordering your Bulgarian currency, it is advisable to request the smaller denomination notes possible. Shops and restaurant in Bulgaria rarely have much in the way of small change and often refuse to accept larger denomination notes
Is readily availabe but if we stop at a petrol station it's best to top up before we head back up into the mountains. Prices are comparable to UK and the rest of Europe.
There are main bike dealers in Sofia and other major cities in Bulgaria. We will help you source the part needed and can also arrange to have the part delivered at you expense.
You must have personal accident cover that covers you for the activities you are about to undertake. ie riding a motorcycle off road, this must include full repatriation.
For your information!!
If travelling on a motorcycle holiday and you do not have a bike licence you MUST check and see if you are covered for your holiday in the event of an accident..
I have rung around many many insurance providers, none of whom I spoke to offer cover for people without a bike licence!!
Please read the information below, as it is the closest I have found to offer any sort of cover.
Please make sure if you are travelling with any company and this applies to you, call your holiday insurance provider and make sure you are covered!!
Navigator Travel Insurance Services Ltd
Our Motorcycle Silver or Motorcycle Gold policies will cover off-road leisure motorcycling as standard, and they will cover competitive riding, such as Motocross, at a supplement.
The wording on the policy document states that any insured must hold "appropriate qualifications" to be riding a similar sized machine in the UK or the Channel Islands. Many policies require the rider to hold an "appropriate licence" but these off-roading policies acknowledge that no licence is required to ride off-road in the UK.
In the event of a claim for an accident, the insurer would be looking for evidence that an unlicensed insured has experience in riding a similar sized bike in the UK. The evidence can take many forms and though it would be easier if it was documentary evidence, such as race card or race licence etc, if they are able to show their experience convincingly by other means, such as a website or Facebook page, photographs etc, that should suffice, as long as it shows that they have some experience.
A licensed rider would not need to supply any such evidence, as the fact that they are licensed to ride a bike of the same cc in the UK would be sufficient.

You MUST HAVE FULL health insurance that covers the activity you are doing that includes FULL repatriation cover. Make sure your next of kin has details should the worst happen.
We have used Properly Protected ». They cover almost anything at any level. Feel free to give them a call and see if they have cover that meets your needs.
Who ever you're insured with ring and check you are covered BEFORE YOU TRAVEL!
All though we recommend only road legal bikes are shipped, only if you venture onto tarmac you would be liable for prosecution.
You can ride ALL off road from our doorstep, so you can bring your un-registered Motocross/Trials/Enduro bike without any worries and stay off road all day.
Please make sure your bike is in a good working condition and fit for purpose. Moose and good off road knobblie tyres are definitely recommended.
You know your bikes better than we do. Please feel free to bring any specialist tools that could ruin your trip if your bike fails. Oil/filters in case you drop it in the water.
Wheel removal tools in case of puncture/moose failure.
Remember to list on the shipping inventory in the admin section of your booking page. (You will be sent the access details for the website upon booking.)
We currently have a Southern pickup/drop off point which is Bedford and a Northern pickup/drop off point which is Lancashire.
Yes, as long as its secure and fits within the confines of your crate.
Upon delivering your bike to our pickup/drop off point you'll be asked to load it personally into our purpose-built cradles.
These are metal crates specifically designed to transport a motorcycle safely.
For your piece of mind, our trained drivers then check each cradle again before departure.
Our standard shipping cradle measures 230cm(L) x 100cm(W) x 125cm(H). Your bike must fit within this space to qualify for the small bike price.
If the bike is taller than 125cm you would have to pay the large bike price.
Most enduro and rally bikes fit no problem or can be made smaller very easily.
For all shipments bikes are required to be with us 2 weeks before your holiday is due to start.
Your bike will be returned to the UK 10/14 days after your holiday, usually much sooner.
Safe, secure, strong crates for your motorcycles transport to Bulgaria. Book now for an adventure of a life time.
To gain our prices we must ensure 2 bikes fit within the confines of one of our crates.
To do this we remove and secure the handle bars to one side, sometime we also use a smaller wheel on the front to lower the bike to under 125cm. Please be aware that all prices quoted are based on the above.
For most Enduro and MX bikes we only need to unclamp the handle bars. Larger bikes such as CCM GP 450, KTM 690 Enduro need a small front wheel for transportation.
Please see the photos in the gallery below to give you a better idea.
We can offer guided off road motorcycling holidays on any bike you choose. Trail bikes, Enduro bikes, Adventure or dual sports. IF you and your big BMW or Africa twin riders want the off road ride of your lives, we can help.
We need a group of 4 bikes to run a tour at the prices quoted, although we can do one on one tours or training at an extra cost.
Or we offer motorcycle transport only options. Arrive and ride. We can help with route planning and destinations. Just ask.
Enduro Bulgaria 23rd June - 30th June 2018
After arriviing with no real expectations our group were blown away by the quality of technical riding on offer. There really is something to test riders of all abilities. Our guide Venci's love of hard enduro made sure everyone really pushed themselves. This is much more than a "trail riding holiday".
