Bansko is Bulgaria's premier ski resort - it has the largest ski area, has a great deal of historical significance and has a real working mountain-town feel. Plus, it’s very easygoing on the wallet.

What sets Bansko aside from its Balkan neighbours is the selection of fantastic hotels (mostly built in the last 15 years or so) that wouldn't look out of place in some of the world's most prestigious resorts - here is the chance to soak up some seriously affordable luxury. This is the best resort for snow making in Bulgaria too, with plenty of snow cannons on hand to top up the slopes throughout the season if the weather isn't on our side.

Apres ski in Bansko is great there are lots of small bars competing for your business with drink at a very reasonable price compared with the Alps. If you are looking for an earthy, traditional Bulgarian night out, there are plenty of bars located around Ploshtad Varazhdane in the old part of town.
