This will be our base for the long weekend and will provide expert and qualified instructors for all activities.

Settle in and have a swim in the hotel's indoor pool or enjoy a sauna or jacuzzi. Later explore the cobbled streets and local history on our doorstep! Evening meal….relax and get ready for the weekend ahead!
White water rafting (morning)
Experience an exhilarating white knuckle ride down the river Struma. Paddle with the spring melt waters amidst breathtaking mountain scenery. Level 3 rafting. No previous experience required. Wetsuits and Helmets provided. Experienced instructor. 2 hour rafting experience.
Mountain Biking (afternoon)
From Bansko we cycle uphill to Mocharata Hut, the oldest hut in the Pirin mountains, on mountain paths. Then enjoy a traditional Bulgarian barbecue before heading downhill on an exhilarating cycle ride to Dobrinishte village. Finish with a relaxing swim in the beautiful Alpha mineral spa open air pool.
We set off with an experienced guide from Bankso, along forest trails, across fresh meltwater rivers and through mountain meadows. After a 3-4 hour hike we finally arrive at a mountain hut in a clearing to rest weary legs and enjoy a traditional barbecue.
Downhill mountain biking (afternoon)
After the barbecue we take a shuttle bus transfer to a chair lift to take us even higher up the mountain to be met with the mountain bikes. It’s then downhill all the way with another exhilarating cycle to Dobrinishte, approx time 2-3 hours. We finish once more with a relaxing swim in the Alpha mineral spa.
Mountain Biking (morning)
A scenic and intermediate level cross country ride, to the village of Bachevo, eventually arriving at the remote horse riding centre of Peri Volas, an ‘oasis in the mountains’. We stop for a good rest and another barbecue and refreshments!
Horse Riding (afternoon)
We then let the horses do the work as we saddle up to be taken deeper into the mountains on well trodden paths with expert guides. We later return by bus to Katarino Spa hotel for a last relaxing dip in a beautiful mineral spa.
Please note; for those not wishing to go horse riding, we can drop you off at Katarino spa to relax by the poolside and chill out for the whole afternoon. The rest of the Group will join up with you after their horse riding, a few hours later.
