rose fields kazanlak

I usually run One Day Tours to Kazanlak during the period of the rose harvest. It starts in the last decade of May until mid-June. This is the time when the blooming roses scatter throughout the vast rose fields. The name of this variety is Rose Damascena. It has a very intrusive scent, a result of the high concentration of oil in its petals. Its scent is spreading all over the Valley of Roses during the 25 day long harvesting period. A must-do part is to stop at a rose field and to collect petals of the blooming roses. Taking photos is another favorite part of my customers (and mine as well :). The people that work on the fields are always happy to pose. They will also show you how to pick up petals without pricking your fingers.

In my One Day Tours to Kazanlak I include visit to a rose distillery where one can see the process of boiling rose oil.
