My name is Iveta and I was born in Sofia, Bulgaria. I love to travel and I used to live in Italy, Australia, Cyprus and United Kingdom. I'm passionate about exploring and my degree in Hospitality and Batchelor in Economics of Tourism bring the value of an extraordinary experience. If you are ready to see something incredible, put on your comfortable shoes and join me in a magnificant day outside of the crowd. Light hike and a lot of nature is the best combination for a day trip.

Where you'll be

Lakatnik is a small village on 50km from the capital of Bulgaria Sofia and on 211 from Plovdiv.
Lakatnik rocks are with different high levels. The highest point is around 250 metres. Thе limestone rock is the best for climbing. Also there is a little red house-'Orlovo gnezdo'-The eagles' Nest. You can reach that little hut only by climbing.
There are also a lot of caves. The biggest is Temnata dupka, but it is not open for tourist-visitin.

What a great day! Iveta is sweet, charming, smiling, and talkative, and it seems like connecting with people just comes natural to her. The location itself is beautiful, and the hike was perfect for someone at my level of experience and endurance. And the restaurant visit at the end made it go from great to perfect! I'd recommend this trip to anyone who likes either hiking, meeting new people, or seeing the more rural sides of Bulgaria. Thanks again for a good time!

It was a great day and experience with Iveta. I really liked this beautiful place, with lots of rocks, nice little paths and stunning caves. The view from the top is incredible! After the hiking there is a nice restaurant. Iveta is a very friendly and kind person. Can fully recommend that tour!
