So what's it like?
For an action-packed snow sports holiday, Bulgaria is a great starting point. The ski and snowboard schools have great reputations (particularly with beginners) and Bulgaria is renowned for its excellent value - also, if you're into après ski, then you'll love to hear that partying here is a fraction of the cost of other European destinations.
Thousands of people take their first slide down the mountain every year in Bulgaria. Our customers rated Pamporovo as the top place to learn in Europe for adults, in both 2013 and 2014. Learn to ski packages start from under £150 – you’ll have your lessons, lift pass and equipment all included – so that first foray onto the slopes is even more affordable. If you are looking to improve, then Bulgaria is great for aspiring intermediates too. Bansko is the largest ski area with 75km of piste - it’s a lot bigger than you may think and there’s a range of skiing to keep even proficient skiers entertained.
Four star hotels with good facilities are the norm in Bulgaria – so your stay will be comfortable and relaxed. There are also some top-end five star accommodation if you’re after a bit of luxury. The bars and clubs are modern and lively - and your spending money goes a lot further. It’s not unusual to find a pint of for as little as £1.20, and a 3-course meal for just over £10.
You can fly to Bulgaria from three UK airports – London Gatwick, Birmingham and Manchester.
Bulgaria is perfect for groups of friends looking for some great skiing and lively après, families who want compact ski areas with good progressive slopes, and complete newbies who just want to give snow sports a try.
