About Borovets

Borovets is the oldest ski resort in Bulgaria and it is also the largest and most up to date with improvements every year. A superb area for beginners and intermediates particularly since the ski school is considered to be one of the best in Europe. There are gentle green slopes as well as steeper reds and blacks for more experienced boarders and skiers. The skiing is very scenic with miles of tree lined runs many with snow cannons and nightly grooming. There are no long queues even at peak periods and lift passes and generally half the price of France resorts. Floodlit night skiing is also possible twice a week. The resort has an array of mountain restaurants in all areas. We can put you in touch with the best ski and board instructors to make your learning experience the best.

Summer in the Rila Mountains
In the summer the mountains are excellent for walking. We can put you in touch with a local guide if you want one who can arrange long duration walks staying at mountain huts on route. The mountains are part of a national park and remain protected from development. Wildlife is abundant with regular sightings of large birds of prey and storks on nests. Temperatures soar in the summer and fall to well below zero in the winter. The snow record is excellent.

The lodge is within walking distance of a beautiful lake where there are opportunities for fishing, swimming, boat hire and water sports. There are restaurants around the lake as well to enjoy the views There are many sights and places to visit the Rila Monastery and seven lakes are well worth a trip. For a relaxing day there are thermal baths and swimming pools very close by.

Local Services:
The Billa supermarket is with an excellent large array of fresh foods, a range of precooked meats on offer as well as salads. There are many restaurants in the area with three really good ones in Samokov and a fourth on route to Sofia. All are excellent value for money. Banks with cash points are on route to Borovets and in Samokov centre, with shopping facilities in the town and local mall. Ski passes are available daily or half daily from the bottom of the runs.
