Your adventure will begin as soon as you spot the unusual white water destination of Bulgaria on the map. The local weather provides for all year round kayaking and 3-seasons rafting. Th¬e tracks are 8 to 15 kilometres long and of average difficulty. Comfortable hotels and facilities around the river complement some of the routes, while other downhill tracks will lead you to dirt roads, romantic bivouac sites and wild nature encounters. Steering amidst Bulgaria’s unknown rapids will boost your adrenaline and you will get to meet the cordial villagers living in the settlements near the river.
 
The Struma River (Kresnensko Gorge)
the gorge of the Struma River offers all year round possibilities for white water kayaking, and is the most popular destination in Bulgaria. In the spring of 2008 a round of the European Rafting Championship took place here. The gorge has two 8-kilometre tracks: difficult (category III+ (V)) and easy (category II+ - III). The starting line can be easily reached by the main road along the river, which also offers comfortable spots for spectators who wish to watch the mesmerizing drops.
 
The Arda River 
Splendid canyons, extreme rapids and desolate shores this is what you can expect to find along the Arda river. When the water is high you can paddle down either of two 15 kilometre-long tracks with difficulty levels of III to IV. The tracks are split by the medieval Devil’s Bridge – a cultural monument. In the spring spate, you will experience incredible adrenaline rushes during kayak descents of the Iskar, Chepinska, Zlatarishka, Rilska, Beli Iskar, Levi Iskar, Bebresh and Chepelarska rivers. A small section of the river Struma gorge has a lower degree of difficulty, which makes it suitable for children (aged 8 to 14) to kayak. Teenagers under 18 can also use the professional track, however parental consent is required.
