Character

The Iskar River is one of the longest and definitely the most picturesque rivers in Bulgaria. Iskar Dam, Pancharevo Gorge and Iskar Gorge, the canyons of Kunino and Reselets offer exciting sights and enjoyable rides. The route takes 3 to 5 days, the main problem being the crossing of the Sofia field. The route can also be combined with other routes or certain sections - eg. Sofia - Samokov as an exit from Sofia to the valleys of Struma or Maritsa. Or to the north via Svoge and Mezdra, as the easiest way to cross the Stara Planina (Balkan) mountain to ride through Moesia or on EuroVelo 6.
