Plovdiv Rowing Camp

Plovdiv, Bulgaria

 March 27 – April 2, 2021
Join us for daily rowing in a stunning 2200m rowing canal in Plovdiv, the venue of choice for numerous international regattas, including the U23 World Rowing Championship in July 2017 and the 2018 World Rowing Championships.


The city of Plovdiv is remarkable. It is one of the oldest cities in the world. Best loved for its romantic Old Town, packed with colorful 19th-century mansions that house museums, galleries, and guesthouses, as well as its magnificent 2nd century Amphitheater. We will stay in a beautiful hotel right by the rowing canal, at a walking distance from the boathouse, row every morning, with optional row included in most afternoons. Boat selection based on preferences and skill levels. The camp is open for all skill levels, including complete beginners. Coaching provided by iROW Tours founder, rowing coach and Bulgarian native Iva Boteva and local Bulgarian coaches (if needed).
