Rusaliite Adventure House

Our unique location offers a beautiful experience living in the Bulgarian nature. Exploring Rila National Park, close by and yet far enough from civilisation you will detach yourself from the modern world. It's the place to get in touch with the authentic Bulgarian country lifestyle and get to know our kind-nature horses.

Not everyone here speaks English, however the world unofficial sign language works well with common sense ;) but still a translator app is the way to go! Everyone at the ranch is sweet and helpful, everyone is flexible and ready to help with any task.

I had a great time at Rusaliite! I did not only enjoy the time with the horses in the nature but especially with the people I met! Nadia always tried to manage everything so it’s best for us, even when we had some difficulties. Even though the work was quite exhausting sometimes the fun parts of riding, enjoying the nature, learning new stuff and getting to know the Bulgarian Culture definitely overweighted. I really appreciate the trust and responsibility I was given. In my free time I got to ride as much as I wanted, we made a campfire, did some Off-road Tours and learned a lot. Thank you<3

I had some problems and I left after 2 days.
-The amount of work did not really correspond to what was promised: more than 6 h/day because the walks with clients are not taken into account.
-A shame not to be fed compared to the amount of work
-Reception: Nadia was absent (we communicated by phone) and Lubo did not speak English, he became very unpleasant.
-The accommodation was dirty and essential things were missing (paper towel, tea towel)
Despite this, I think it could have been a great experience! I was pleasantly surprised by the magnificent setting and the very well-treated horses.

Dear Eleonore, thank you for your feedback, I have made certain changes accordingly to make the experience better for volunteers. With that said I would like to ask you to read fully the description of any volunteer / work position and remember that they will not be all the same :)
I wish you safe and exciting travels!

stayed 2 days instead of 1 month. Everything different from the announcement. Cleaning the farm much more than riding. While the title says : Equestrian guide for extraordinary trips. Dirty accommodation, No towels, dirty beds, few cutlery. We have to live with a bipolar man, violent, who speak badly and throw buckets. While they show a beautiful hotel, it is empty and they still make us sleep in the barn. You have to pay for everything, tickets, taxi, food.They do not give any food. 700€ spent. No recognition zero thanks while they live thanks to our help. hygiene and comfort absent.

Dear Romane, the title suggest that this position is for volunteers with advanced riding skills to be able to lead riding trips. The title cannot give the full idea of the work, this is what the description is for, and I wish that you have read it. We do provide breakfast, as stated in the description, the apartment is shared with other volunteers and we expect that everyone cleans after themselves. We provide bedding, free laundry with detergent, etc, but we do not provide towels and other personal items since it is not a hotel holiday. The hotel photos are for the housekeeping position that we have. There are also photos of the apartment that you probably overlooked. It goes without saying that the transportation fees is at the expense of the volunteers, although we do pick you up from the nearest town for free.
As for the man with the bad attitude - he is now fired.

Couldn’t feel happier for choosing this place for my first Worldpackers experience. Had an opportunity to work with awesome people and amazing horses. Nature there is so incredibly beautiful it felt surreal sometimes. Already missing the place and exited to come back❤️
PS to future volunteers - take care and give a lot of love to horsie Faraon :p

I was at the ranch for 2 weeks and I enjoyed my time there. It's nice to be around the animals and the nature. In your day's off you can go to the town it's kind of far gonna take you couple hours but the views of the mountains are incredible. It's hard to communicate with the people there cause the language barrier but Lubo it's always open and he tries to use the translate to communicate with you he's a nice guy. In general I enjoyed my time there I just have to say thanks for the experience.
