The Rhodope mountain range features on the Top 10 of the 2011 National Geographic Traveler chart Best Tours in Europe. In the chart the mountain known as the birthplace of mythical singer Orpheus, has been singled out as one of the most luring adventure targets along with the Alps and the Caucasus.

“Carved by deep river gorges and riddled with vast networks of caves, southern Bulgaria’s Rhodopes mountain range is a wonderland for hiking, rock climbing, horseback riding, and spelunking. Do it all on this multi-sport family adventure, including a trek into the forested Chairite Reserve, where you’ll set up camp for the night and sleep under the stars”, the review reads.

It invites adventurers to come and know one of Europe’s most picturesque nooks. The Bulgarian section of the mountain that stretches across the border and into Greee, has been recommended as a place that is good for both adventure and family trips.
