Increase in alternative tourists visiting Bulgaria

Alternative tourists are especially interested in visiting local archaeological sites and monasteries, Domouschiev said. Some of the foreign tourists prefer to devote their holidays to learning traditional Bulgarian crafts as well as Bulgarian cuisine. Wine and village tourism are also widely developed.

According to the Tourism Investors Union, smaller companies are more engaged with alternative tourism. They are often owners of eco-houses in the mountains, away from the typical tourist areas. However, larger tour operators have also noticed this market niche and have started to develop there own expeditions around the mountains but have also managed to develop alternative tourism opportunities near the Black Sea.
