Skiing in Bulgaria, Walking in Portugal and Georgia and more…

It was great to be back in Bulgaria again as it has been a few years since my last visit. I’m planning two trips with The Natural Adventure Company this year, the first to Portugal to look at some new walks along the Rota Vicentina and perhaps even do some cycling. Later in the year I plan a walking holiday in Georgia…

Launching The Natural Adventure Smartphone Navigation App

Until recently, we offered to our customers to optionally rent handheld GPS devices with the tracks for their daily walks preloaded. While this was a nice add-on to the route notes and paper topo maps we provide, there were many drawbacks. Having teamed up with industry leaders, starting in 2018 we are launching our free smartphone navigation app (available for Android and iOS devices), which will gradually eliminate the need of bringing a separate GPS device on our itineraries.

Bulgaria walking holiday, Bulgaria Walking and Spa Adventure
