The Danube Bike Path

The Danube Bike Path -11 days of leisure cycling from Bulgaria to Romania across the delightful Danube Region that impresses both for its natural and human history. Our route unites two Biosphere Reserves and UNESCO World Heritage Sites, Lake Srebarna, blessed by the breeding Dalmatian Pelican colony and the incredible wooded channels and wetlands of the great Danube Delta.

The Belogradchik Rocks are a natural phenomenon aged more than 200 million years. They cover a territory of 30 km length and about 6-7 km width. Due to its unusual forms, the rocks have various names.

The antique town of Ulpiya Eskus is situated near the bank of the river Danube, at a distance of about 22 km from the town of Gulyantski. The Roman town had been established in the 1st century AD as an heir of a Thracian settlement.

We continue to Rouse. Due to the beautiful architecture and the internal shaping of the buildings constructed by Italian, Austrian, German and Bulgarian architects, Ruse was also known as “The Small Vienna”.

Our last stop of The Danube Bike Path is the impressive Danube Delta. You will discover the labyrinth of waterways, lakes and jungles – home of storks, herons, glossy ibis, spoonbills and other birds.
