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.

About Plovdiv

Post 23 April 2014 By In About Bulgaria

In the center of Bulgaria Plovdiv is located on both banks of the Maritsa river in the central part of the Upper Thracian Plain. The country is mostly plain, but Plovdiv is particularly known, like Rome, for its seven hills, one of which was destroyed in the beginning of the 20th century. 

A couple of key thoroughfares cross the city, including the one connecting Sofia with Istanbul through Edirne, as well as the one between Sofia and Burgas through Stara Zagora. Plovdiv is regarded as the gate to the Rhodopes, as most people who head for the mountains choose it as their starting point. The city has three train stations (and an additional railway stop) and three bus stations. There are two types of buses that run in Plovdiv.

Plovdiv is possibly known at the time as a Thracian fortified settlement named Eumolpias according to Ammianus Marcellinus, in 342 BC it was conquered by Philip II of Macedon, father of Alexander the Great, who renamed it Philippopolis ("the city of Philip"), rendered in Latin as Philippopolis, in his own honour. It later became independent under the Thracians, until it was incorporated into the Roman Empire, under which it was also called Trimontium (City of Three Hills) and served as metropolis of the province of Thrace. Thrimontium was an important crossroad for the Roman Empire and was called "The largest and most beautiful of all cuities" by Lucian.[1] Via Militaris, the most important military road in the Balkans, passed through the city. In what was one of the most glorious periods in the history of the city, it spread beyond the three hills, and numerous public buildings, shrines, baths, and theatres were built.

    The 9 days I spent with Nasko, Naska and their gorgeous children were the best 9 days of my 2 months travelling. A beautiful part of the world that I felt privileged to share with such beautiful people. I left with a permanent smile on my face, and a tear in my eye - I will definitely be going back to Ivan Vazovo to spend more time with this amazing familly! :)

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.
