Our main base for the week is the village of Yagodina, a traditional rural settlement famed for its self-sufficiency and the hospitality of its inhabitants. The village lies tucked away in the Trigrad Karst region and
is one of the remotest parts of the Rodopi Mountains. Here we stay in a small village hotel offering comfortable twin rooms with en-suite facilities. The hotel is owned and run by a local family and all most of the food (including milk, cheese, butter, jam, honey etc) is home produced. Our final night will be in a comfortable, centrally located hotel in Sofia.

As there are no banks or ATMs once you enter the mountains you may wish to exchang 75 - 100 Euros into local Bulgarian currency to cover these entrances and for the purchase of drinks with meals and
traditional handicrafts as souvenirs.
Please note that the banks located within the arrivals hall at Sofia airport are typically closed at the weekends, so please make sure you obtain Bulgarian currency either in your home country or before passing through customs into the arrivals hall. When ordering your Bulgarian currency it is advisable to request as small denomination notes as possible. Shops and restaurant in Bulgaria rarely have much in the way of small change and often refuse to accept larger denomination notes.

Meals will normally include four courses comprising a salad, soup and main course, followed by a dessert of fruit, ice cream, or cake/pudding. The cuisine reflects a mixture of Bulgarian, Greek, Turkish and Slavonic influences. We sample many traditional local specialities including ‘smilyanski fasul’, a delicious bean soup and ‘patatnik’, a local delicacy made with grated potatoes, onions, and cheese, then seasoned with mint and other herbs.
Jugs of tap water will be provided on the table with the evening meal. Bottled mineral water, soft drinks and alcohol are not included but may be purchased. There are several local wines that you may wish to try, including an excellent red ‘Mavrud’ from vineyards on the northern slopes of the Rodopi!
