Your Day On Iskar Dam with Kayak

The North shore is about 80 km away from Sofia and the trip takes slightly over an hour. Upon arrival at the lake we will prepare the kayak for the trip along the shore where we will observe nothing but wild nature and animals. Depending on the season we can have lunch in a nearby restaurant where they cook one of the best fish soups we have ever tried. In the afternoon we can reach the shore across from our arrival point and enjoy a beautiful sandy beach. We paddle back to the minibus where we will prepare for our journey back to Sofia.

Iskar Lake Overview

Iskar Dam is the largest water reservoir in Bulgaria located 50 to 80 kilometers away from the capital city of Sofia. It was built in the 1960's to supply the capital with water from the nearby mountain of Rila (its name means "a lot of water"). It's South shore is located along the scenic road to Samokov and Borovets ski resort and it is more inhabited due to its ease of access. Its Northern shore offers wonderful green fields, forests, beaches and also an animal reserve where wild animals and birds roam free. People have very limited access to this area except by boat.and Today it offers perfect possibilities for water sports
