Mountain biking, fishing, walking and kayaking at Melanya
Mountain bike holidays at Melanya offer a wealth of challenges from easy going mountain tracks to rugged goat trails and 'off road' challenges. Bikes are available for our guests, however serious enthusiasts should consider bringing their own cycle.
The river Arda is home to some fair size Chub and Barbel with immense strength and speed. Stick float works well in the faster rocky runs while waggler and feeders come into their own where the river slows to meet the reservoir. The Kardzhali Reservoir holds some legendary Perch and has been stocked with thousands of Carp.
For those interested in watersports, we have storage for your kayaks and boats. Soak up the sun while drifting slowly in a rowing boat or head upstream to the more challenging water in your kayaks.
