What's included in the Narrow-Gauge Train in Bulgaria

Overview

Take the journey on the metal road across the Rhodope and Rila mountains and enjoy the ride! With construction that started during WWI, the century old narrow gauge train (760 mm between rails) offers spectacular views towards valleys and rivers, winding its way up to the highest railway station on the Balkans (1267 m a.s.l.).
Our Narrow-Gauge Train experience in Bulgaria includes bus transfer to starting/from ending station, train ticket, English speaking guide, entrance to an open-air hot mineral water pool, light lunch on the train and overnight in a guest house.

Recommendations

A romantic journey through mountain ranges combined with SPA and an overnight in a village far from the city hustle.

The Narrow-Gauge Train in Bulgaria is a great trip to discover new landscapes and photo-inspirations. A way to get close to local people and spend a couple of days well away from the city.
