One of the most popular holiday spots in Bulgaria, Bansko is a premier skiing resort which buzzes with activity during the European winter months. When the snow melts and ski enthusiasts return home, Bansko’s beauty remains and is evident in many other ways. Old cobbled streets, winding around restored 19th century mansions and museums, remnants from old fortress-style walls and of course, a gateway to the spectacular Pirin Mountains, Bansko is far from just a seasonal destination. Bansko is based at the feet of the UNESCO-listed Pirin National Park, where 176 glittering
lakes wait to be discovered amidst remarkable pine forests, via hundreds of walking trails and hikes. Roaming through these, it’s clear to see why the Pirin mountain range is a much-loved natural region of Bulgaria for locals and visitors alike. Be at one with nature as you hike along spectacular trails, go birdwatching and see if you can spot a peregrine falcon or woodpecker, or try your hand at horseback riding along rolling hills and deep valleys. Foodies should visit a fish farm and try fresh trout for lunch cooked in a traditional way, or simply pack a picnic and enjoy the spectacular views of Eastern Europe’s splendid nature.
