Amazing program in one of the most beautiful dams in Bulgaria.

Vacha dam is located along the Vacha river, in the embrace of Rhodope mountains. The dam is situated near Osikovo, north of Devin. This is the dam with the highest wall in Bulgaria - 144.5 m. It is about 18 km long. We will have a whole day to paddle as much as we want, and the restaurant on the shore is always ready for lunch with fish specialties and refreshing drinks.

Our one-day kayaking in the Rhodopes is worth it!

The program will take place with a minimum of 6 participants.
