732 km along the banks of the Danube river
to the Black Sea

Dunav Ultra is the longest cycle route in Bulgaria. It runs for total of 732 km (455 miles) covering the distance close to the Northern border of the country – along the banks of the Danube river (Dunav, in Bulgarian) to the Black Sea. The starting point of the itinerary is the northwestern-most corner of Bulgaria, namely the village of Kudelin and the end point is the most northeastern point of the country the village of Durankulak.



The Dunav Ultra Cycle Route passes through/near 107 modern-day settlements in Northern Bulgaria, including the Danube towns: Vidin, Lom, Kozloduy, Oryahovo, Belene, Svishtov, Ruse, Tutrakan and Silistra. More than 500 km  from the Dunav Ulta route overlaps the Eurovelo 6 transcontinental cycle route.



Since 2014 we have been organizing a 680 km bicycle challenge event – along the Danube River to the Black Sea in Bulgaria. Our Dunav Ultra Cycling Challenge is one of the most attractive events for amateur cyclists on the Balkans. The event’s goal is successfully to cover the Dunav Ultra route as solo participant or in a team.
