Breakfast. Departure from the hotel to Trigrad Gorge - majestic cliffs in the Western Rhodopes. Visit to the most terrifying cave in Bulgaria Devil's Throat. The cave entrance or exit for visitors looks like a devil's head and the waters of Trigrad River pour into its throat. The tourist route is opposite to the course of the water in the cave. The entrance of the cave is through a dug into the rock 150-meter tunnel, which is almost straight in the beginning and then is followed by a serpentine. The tour continues with a visit to Yagodinska Cave and to get there first we will pass through the picturesque Buynovo Gorge. The Yagodinska cave is one of the most famous and visited caves in Bulgaria. The route long over a kilometer gives you the opportunity to see beautiful representatives of almost all kinds of cave formations, but the most impressive are the numerous cave pearls. They are formed as real pearls from grain of sand, splashed in the water, which after many years envelops in calcite in order to acquire its round shape. At the exit of the cave we will offer you a unique experience - off-road jeep safari to the panoramic site "Eagle Eye", where you will have the opportunity to feel like a bird - and look at the mountains from above. *The offroad walk takes place depending on the weather conditions.
