The Balkan mountains offer excellent conditions for flatland cross-country flying. The sunny and fresh climate makes the thermals strong and the cloud-base high. If you don’t know what this means, join a paragliding training school or try a tandem flight (visit SkyNomad.com for more info, they are super cool and experienced). One of the best spots is Sopot, where the 2013 World Paragliding Championship was held. Stay over at the historic town of Tryavna and enjoy amazing some amazing food too!
