Activities near Bansko

The charming historic town of Bansko can trace its roots back to Thracians (pre Roman) times, long before any skiing arrived.

Its location sits at the bottom of the UNESCO recognised Pirin National Park, nestled on the edge of an expansive plateau with the lower, but no-less beautiful rolling ranges of the Rila and Rhodolpe mountains.

As skiing has expanded, so too has Bansko. Now Bulgaria’s largest, most popular and best-loved ski resort, there is a lively feel to the town and resort with plenty of activities to keep you busy if you’re not planning on skiing.

The town itself is full of Balkan charm and charisma, especially the old town centre, which is a captivating throwback to the village that has now become a ski resort.

APRES & EATING OUT
With a wide range of restaurants, bars and old Mehanas (taverns), Bansko town and mountain has a bustling atmosphere. From international cuisine to traditional Bulgarian treats, there really is something for everyone. If an aprés party is your preferred theme, Bansko has you covered with plenty of mountain bars, town pubs and entertaining nightclubs.

NATURAL BEAUTY
There are two sides to every mountain, especially in Bansko. The natural beauty of the Pirin National Park is clear to see. If you fancy a day off or want to try something different, you’ve come to the right place. With a variety of bustling markets and a wide range of activities on offer, the town has everything you need.

- Go walking or snowshoeing in the mountains (guide can be arranged)
- Visit geothermal mineral springs in local village
- Excursion to one of Bulgaria’s oldest churches
- Spend time wandering around the local markets
- Go up the gondola for the views (separate gondola pass available)

Brilliant Chalet - Amazing Skiing


The chalet was amazing, large comfy rooms with excellent view of the mountain. The hosts were fantastic, friendly and fabulous at arranging anything you needed.
The slopes were awesome, my twins skiing really improved and they even ventured on to black runs.
The chalet is about a 10 min stroll to the town, either old or new town. Bansko provides the choice of traditional Bulgarian hospitality in the old town with lots of bars and restaurants at amazing prices. The new town provides apres ski and more night life - if that’s your choice of holiday.

We had the best week skiing and loved the comradery of the chalet in the evening.
