Bulgaria Caves Tour Itinerary
On the day of your tour, you'll be picked up from your hotel in Sofia at 8 am, ready for your adventure deep into Bulgaria's impressive caves. The country is home to more than 5000 different caves, and exploring the wealth of natural rock formations and the landscapes around them is a true delight.
The first stop on your tour will be Saeva Dupka and its five galleries. Used as a hiding place during the Ottoman occupation of Bulgaria, this cave is full of stalactites and stalagmites that have grown into interesting formations as you'll discover on your tour. You'll be impressed by the excellent acoustics of one of Saeva Dupka's chambers in particular, which have led to it being used for concerts and as a filming location.
Back on the road, you'll head in the direction of Prohodna. This cavern is also known as the Cave of the Eyes of God, as the two wide openings in the cave roof resemble two large eyes. The natural light that floods through these windows make for the perfect environment to explore this fascinating cave without fear.
Finally, you'll visit Devetashka Cave. Does it remind you of any movies? The stunning beauty of this ancient cavern has been recogonised by Hollywood, and it has been immortalised in films like The Expendables. You'll get to explore the cave and discover its historical and natural legacy: from tens of thousands of years of human occupation to the 30,000 bats that live there nowadays.
After an unforgettable day exploring Bulgaria's caves, you'll be dropped back off at your hotel in Sofia at around 6 pm.
