Your rafting day tour

At 9:30, the tour will start from our meeting point in Sofia– behind Alexander Nevski cathedral. After 1.5 hours drive we will reach the gorge where after a briefing by your professional instructor you will receive your equipment and final instructions before the action. Approximately hour and a half will take you to finish the river trace. A vehicle will wait for you at the end of it and you will be transported back to the base, where you will return the equipment and dress up. If the appetite has increased after the adrenaline rush you can have lunch nearby, before you start the journey to the most visited UNESCO World heritage site.

You will be at the Monastery of Rila around 15:00 and have 1 full our to explore the complex with our audio-guides in English, Spanish, Italian, Russian and German languages. You will be back in Sofia center around 18:00.
