Lukovit hotels, accommodation. Attractions and tourism in Geo-park Iskar-Panega.
Lukovit is a small town, crossed by the Zlatna Panega River and it is located where the Danube Plain ends and where the Fore-Balkans start. Pleven is only 50 km from Lukovit, Lovech - 68 km and Sofia - 110 km. Historically Lukovit is a really ancient settlement, as evidenced by the artifacts dating to the 3-2 millennium BC. Traces of life of one of the first Homo sapience who lived on the planet were found in the Temntata Dupka Cave, next to Lukovit. The greatest wealth of Lukovit, however, is its unique nature. It is not only the Zlatna Panega River that goes through the territory of the town, but also the rivers of Iskar and Vit. They form the only geo-park in Bulgaria - "Iskar - Panega" which includes the Karlukovo Karst Complex, as well as the Roadside Landscape Park of "Panega" and many geological and geomorphological sites. The Geo-park is located next to the main road E-83 and Lukovit. Here one may see the unique rock formations of Kuklite, located in beautiful canyon at the Zlatna Panega River and the Prohodna Cave suitable for walking. It is the longest cave tunnel in Bulgaria and is naturally lit by the two slits in the ceiling, called "The Eyes of God". There are gazebos and barbecue areas and excellent conditions for nature tourism on the territory of the park. There is bungee jumping from the entrance and an alpine descending from the "eyes" of the cave, as well as rafting and boating on the river, mountain biking, paintball, off road and rock climbing. Other landmarks are the Kotlen Circus, the Loose Rocks of Daima, the Laguna with circular swamp, skit-recesses of Igluto, Largoto, Tepavitsata, Longoza, Rila Myaso and Lozeto, the rock figures of the Radetski Ship, Nosat, Delvata, etc. There are 240 caves studied in the region, including both rock phenomena of Provertenika and Strupanets. Natural beauty and tourism interests are a prerequisite for the construction of two eco-trails - the mountain trail of "Koncheto" and the hiking trail of "Pogledets". The Karst valley is the most beautiful and available in late spring. Lukovit hotels are generally two, offering perfect accommodation to meet every taste and budget.
