Sea with the taste of Strandzha
What is included in Sea with the taste of Strandzha trek:
Sinemorets – Kosti
Morning beach. We get on the bikes around noon. We will head southwest of Sinemorets along a well-trodden country road. For a long time we will be riding on it, enjoying the sweet aromas of various wild flowers and herbs that in thick forests. The route is characterised by very slight ascents and descents, closely following the border barrier. After 25 km, we reach Uzunbodzhak Nature Reserve. After another 5 km, we arrive at the village of Kosti, where we will stay for the night.
Expected distance – 30 km.
Kosti – Sarmashik (Brashlyan)
After having breakfast, we leave from Kosti along the south bank of the Veleka River, heading westwards. After 15 km, we will reach Indipasha – maybe the oldest Thracian sacred ground. On the square in Malko Tarnovo, we will get the chance to drink a beer, after which we continue for 12 km on an asphalt road to the village of Brashlyan, where we will stay for the night.
Expected distance – 46 km.
Brashlyan – Kosti
We are about to make our descent to the valley of the Veleka and the Mladezhka Rivers, where we will wade across the smaller one, in order to ride along the north bank of the interesting and sometimes difficult-to-reach Veleka River. We will be following a dirt road with thick vegetation and almost no slope. This area is exceptionally rich in wild animals, so it would not be surprising to come across jumping deer, or eagles with their wings spread wide. The circular route ends at the village of Kosti, where we will stay for another night and some deserved rest in our already favourite guest house.
Expected distance – 50 km.
Kosti – Sinemorets
We have chosen the easiest and the most pleasurable ride for this day, so that we may have some time for the beach, as well. We can see deeper and more interesting coves along the river. Reaching the village of Brodilovo, we will take a rest at the square. In the afternoon, we reach the mouth of the Veleka River at Sinemorets. Time for the beach.
