Fishing in the Vidin region


Fishing in the Vidin region

5th – 10th October 2013

Five days of fishing in the Vidin region?   For those who love fishing and like to fish in different waters…this trip has to be a must! Fishing is extremely popular and it’s not uncommon to see families fishing side by side along the edge of the Danube. This trip has been designed with the help of a renowned local expert who has identified three exciting locations for fishing, and the mighty river Danube will no doubt challenge the most active fishing enthusiast! Predatory and non predatory fish live in these same waters and if you are extremely lucky you might even catch a sturgeon!   What more could you want?


The visit to the lake and the pond offer the fishing enthusiast different experiences and wonderful scenic locations – bait and other essentials will be purchased – fishing rods etc can also be sourced for those who do not wish to bring their own equipment.
