Resort Description

Located in Bulgarias breathtaking Pirin Mountains, Bansko is a town full of old world character that has developed into a large, modern, up and coming ski centre.

Bansko is especially suitable for mixed abilities. The ski school provides quality tuition from English speaking instructors for as little as 120 for four hours, making it outstanding value. Experienced skiers and snowboarders can test their skills in an area that recently bid to host the Olympics on its extreme terrain!

A wide selection of international cuisine is served in the reasonably priced restaurants. The traditional tavernas prepare local dishes for you to try.

Bansko offers a unique blend of modern and traditional. Why not explore the historic sites, such as the Rila Monastery or capital city of Sofia? There are plenty of shops for souvenirs and other non-ski activities include tobogganing, swimming and bowling.

Bansko is an ideal destination for all, with its lively atmosphere and value for money prices.
