Welcome to Extreme Bulgaria!

  What is Extreme Bulgaria? In order to answer that, we will first have to take a look at another question: Who is Atanas Koev? Atanas Koev is a jet fighter and paraglider pilot, an experienced climber and hiker, a skilled kayaker, skydiver, ATV instructor, travel guide, speleologist and off-road navigator. He is also a happy peace-loving person who can’t get enough of the beauty of the Bulgarian countryside and father of three lovely children whose lives must be full of exciting adventures and fun. But above all he is a man who has managed to turn his dream into reality. That dream is called Extreme Bulgaria.

Explore Bulgaria

  Spend an unforgettable extreme week in Bulgaria in the pleasant company of a truly extraordinary adventurer.

  Extreme Bulgaria is a company that is all about the high-octane adventures. As you already read, its founder is an expert in every conceivable adrenaline-pumping sport there is (and a few additional ones, too), so you’ve got a pretty long list of activities to pick from. Naturally, you can combine them in whatever way you want and you can even customise entire itineraries. The one-week packages offered at Extreme Bulgaria deserve a special mention here. They are prepared individually for different clients and take into consideration several subjective factors, including the clients’ preferences and capabilities and the weather conditions in the country, for example. The best thing about those one-week tours, however, is that they allow people to immerse themselves completely in the magic realms of Bulgarian nature and culture and spend a nice varied, adventure-filled holiday. Balance is the key to their success: the fast-paced wild activities are perfectly mixed with relaxing episodes in cool spas and traditional taverns and informative walking tours around some of the country’s most famous landmarks.

  The dedicated fans of the countryside are also more than welcome to visit Atanas in Ivan Vazovo Village near Plovdiv where he lives together with his family. There they can learn a lot about rural traditions and habits and the perks of living far away from the large crowded urban centres. Of course, they can engage in several fun activities such as horseback riding and beekeeping as well.

  The last important point that has to be made here is that Extreme Bulgaria is not exactly a one-man show. Atanas Koev has managed to put together a great squad of professionals who help him with all his endeavours. They are well trained, disciplined, and have a nice sense of humor. Their devotion is outstanding and their approach to clients is always personal.

  Now there is just one last thing you have to remember: Extreme Bulgaria means not only world-class services and amazing adventures but true friendship as well.
