Bulgaria ski holidays

Bulgaria ski holidays offer the best value for money around. The cost of a lift pass, equipment hire and 20 hours of tuition is often less than the cost of a lift pass on its own in other European resorts!


You'll also find an excellent choice of places to stay at a variety of price points in Bansko and Borovets. Many of the hotels have pools and leisure facilities too. And let's not forget the traditional Bulgarian après-ski and surprisingly good choice of local wines. It's not all about the slopes, after all!

Bulgaria at a glance
  • Fantastic value for money
  • Ideal for beginners & improvers
  • Very family-friendly
  • Most hotels are 4-star
  • Most hotel have a pool

The two ski areas in Bulgaria are just right for beginners and improvers. The slopes are wide, gentle and mostly tree-lined; ideal for making your first turns on snow.


You'll find yourself gaining in confidence in no time thanks to the superb tuition from the English-speaking ski and snowboard schools.


Bulgaria is good for...

Beginners, improvers and families will get the most out of Bulgaria. Its value for money makes it the obvious (and best) choice for those looking to try skiing or snowboarding for the first time. 


Bulgaria's value carries on through to the après too. The atmosphere is fun and friendly wherever you go. Don't mis trying a local Mehana for some traditional Bulgarian fare.


Eating like a local

The food in Bulgarian hotels is quite different to the traditional fare. Hotels tend to cater for the Western Europeans with the usual Spaghetti Bolognese, meats, fish etc in large buffet areas. They all do it very well.


Traditional Bulgarian food is tasty, fresh and hearty with grilled pork and chicken being the most common meats. It's not too far removed from Greek dishes with the shopska salad and their own musaka being well-known favourites. And don't miss trying their wines, connoisseurs won't be disappointed!
