“Wine is not just an object of pleasure,
but an object of knowledge
and the pleasure depends on the knowledge.”
Surprise! Just recently we told you how cool the campervan wine tour is, writing an ode to this true gourmet experience for campers and not only.
Here it is, just a few days after that, the first Campertrips Wine Trip is already a reality! We’ve prepared a great campervan wine tour itinerary for you, and all you have to do is book a campervan to enjoy a 3- or 6-day wine tasting tour with sightseeing in Bulgaria.
A Campertrips wine tour is a sensory experience that, in addition to the adventure of wild camping, will bring you closer to the pleasure of the most ancient of beverages – wine, and right at harvest time!
For you, our customers, we at Campertrips have created a special wine route that takes you around some of the most interesting wineries in Bulgaria, such as Chateau Rupel, Orbelus Winery and Villa Melnik, without missing any of the sights in the interestingly rich Struma region.
The Campertrips wine trip, besides a tasting tour* of the wineries by campervan, includes an intriguing additional program with folk dances, delicious varied food*, sightseeing tours such as: a walk through the vineyards during the grape harvest, participation in the 2021 grape harvest, a bike trail to the Orbellus winery, a visit to Zlatolist and St. Stoina, a visit to the town of Melnik and the Wine Museum, a walk to the Rozhen Monastery, a walk to the sand tunnel at the village of Lyubovishte and Skoka waterfall, visit to Rupite and the temple of Grandmother Vanga, wild camping at the Big Meadow with its healing waters, visit to the excavations of the ancient city of Herakleia Sintica, visit to Samuil’s fortress and a luxurious SPA experience with an overnight stay at Mantar Camping*.
An unforgettable adventure in a luxury 5 star hotel on wheels that gives you all the freedom and pleasure in the world! A true utopia for the upcoming weekend!
So that even people with overly busy schedules and work commitments can take advantage of our Campervan Wine Trip, we’ve split the adventure into short and long tours for the most convenience: 3 days of just cellars and chateaus or 6 days of cellars and chateaus and sightseeing. The distance covered will be about 400 km. – Round trip, round trip and return, and our modern, luxurious and extremely easy to use campervans allow overnight accommodation and transport for 4 to 6 people.
