Plovdiv Rowing Tour

Plovdiv, Bulgaria

April 2 – April 8, 2023

 Our first rowing tour of 2023 is in Plovdiv, Bulgaria!



 Row daily in a stunning 2200m rowing canal in Plovdiv, the venue of choice for numerous international regattas, including the upcoming U23 World Rowing Championships in July, 2017. 

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 (pictured above) at a walking distance from the boathouse and rowing is offered every morning. Boat selection based on preferences and skill levels. This trip is open for rowers of all skill levels, including complete beginners. Coaching provided by iROW Tours founder, rowing coach and Bulgarian native Iva Boteva, as well as local rowing coaches. We have some wonderful guided afternoon activities planned, including a walking tour in the heart of Plovdiv, wine tasting experience in the country side, and a trip into the nearby Rhodope Mountains where we will visit a beautiful monastery along with an ancient fortress and some other places of interest.
