Velingrad entices visitors to uncover its hidden gems. Every corner gives away memorable details that can be best discovered and experienced by travelling on foot or by bicycle.

Hiking and biking routes lead to various cultural and historical landmarks. The circular tours around Velingrad, varying in distance, will take attendees through typical and traditional villages. Here, they will be acquainted with how people once lived in harmony with nature and how they strive to revive this tradition. Ideally, attendees will combine cycling with hiking. If your team tends to be competitive, you can organise your own hiking and biking Velingrad Challenge or orientational team building, dubbed geocaching. Professional event organisers from Velingrad’s Bulreisen agency will provide you with bicycles and guides.
