Apriltsi: A piece of the real Bulgaria

Apriltsi is located in the centre of Bulgaria. Positioned in a corridor of mountains it boasts the cleanest air in Europe. It is naturally renewed up to 4 times a day. Apriltsi is also a historical centre of Bulgarian culture. Many traditional craftsmen still practice their skills for pottery, wood carving, weaving and knitting.

JMB Active organises cultural and nature activities in Apriltsi, Bulgaria. We offer stimulating holidays for travellers who want a genuine experience of a new destination. Our activities are community based. We operate as a social enterprise that helps maintain local cultural traditions and preserve the unique natural environment of the Central Balkan.

We organise cultural activities such as pottery, wood carving, pyrography, weaving, knitting, iconography, Bulgarian Horo dancing. These activities bring our guests in direct contact with the best teachers and craftsmen. It helps support local artists in the region and develop awareness for Bulgarian culture. And for our guests these activities are a great way to switch off from the stress of life in the big city.

We also organise nature activities such as horse riding, hunting, fishing, hiking and mountain biking.

Many of our guests are professionals who want to escape the pressure of work but don’t want to sit on a beach all day. We host families, school children and corporate groups for team building events. Everybody loves to discover first-hand what it takes to produce a ceramic jug or to carve a wooden plate.

Most of all it's a great way to discover the real Bulgaria!
