Valchi Dol (Bulgarian: Вълчи дол, pronounced [ˈvɤltʃi ˈdɔl]; also transliterated Vulchi Dol or Vǎlči Dol) or Valchidol (Vulchidol, Vǎlčidol) is a town in northeastern Bulgaria, part of Varna Province. It is the administrative centre of Valchi Dol Municipality, which lies in the northwestern part of Varna Province.

Valchi Dol is located at the watershed of the Dobruja, Varna and Shumen plateaux. Its name means "wolf's ravine" in Bulgarian, which is also reflected in its old Ottoman Turkish name, Kurtdere. Valchi Dol boasts the first diesel power plant among all villages in Bulgaria, installed in 1929. The village was proclaimed a town in 1974.
