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.

    Nasko, Naska and their kids are just wonderful! I've spent the best time in Bulgarian countryside with them, giving my soul a peace I needed. Hot baths in the night, excercises on the grassfield in the morning and talking about eveything that is most important in life... It was just wonderful! I hope I will be able to visit you next time, friends, and see how you are! :)

    Nasko and Naska and their adorable children, horse, dog, bees, garden, simple life, philosophy, food, music, and on and on were a great retreat for us for 2 days. We definitely want to come back. We learned so much from them, even if we are nearly twice their age. We are better for having met them. Thank you so much for the wonderful time! Now, keep singing and smiling, and remembering this couple that loves you from Idaho, USA. HUGS! (Shelley, United States)

    I spend one interesting afternoon and morning with Nasko, Naska and their kids - it was a privilage to feel warm, tranquil rural life in a remote village I would never wisit otherwise. I learnt some bulgarian words from their doughter, went to a night bath under the stars in warm spring which was just perfect...
    They are very hospitable and uncomplicated people with a lot to share and learn from.
    Thank you for a memorable stay and I wish you all the best. Take care!

    Atanas is a very interesting person. I and 2 friends, stayed in his village house for a couple of nights Atanas is very energetic and into extreme sports (big time). It’s a pleasure to hear him talk about the various extreme spots he has done and kind of makes you want to start doing them also! We where lucky enough to eat a great meal and homemade bread that his wife prepared and met his lovely family. Atanas is a great host

    Besides outdoor adventures tours, Atanas hosts volunteers at his farm as part of Help Exchange / WWOOF (Worldwide Opportunities on Organic Farms).

    Guests get to stay in their own quaint farmhouse. Like other houses in Ivan Vazovo Village, it is built in the traditional Bulgarian style, but with modern amenities---including internet access!

    Here we spend several hours a day helping his wife Naska in the fruit and vegetable garden, doing things such as weeding, cutting hay, mulching and setting up vine supports.

    Naska then includes the harvest in the meals that she often cooks for us in their home.

    There's lots to see and do in the area. These include hiking up the surrounding hills. On top of one of these is a huge boulder formation (I couldn't tell if it was natural or made by an ancient civilization).

    We also went swimming and fishing in a nearby stream.

    For a change of scenery, visitors can take the local train to Karlovo, a charming town at the foothill of a mountain range.

    And in the other direction is the city of Plovdiv with its cafes, discos, shops, traditional architecture and Roman ruins.

    Ivan Vazovo Village would be a nice place to settle and live. Indeed, that is exactly what several outsiders have done.

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.
