Just a week ago, we came back from another spectacular ski holiday in Borovets. It seems that the ski resort has completely stolen my heart as I keep going back. After four years of ski vacations, I feel like I am home when skiing in Borovets.
Bulgaria is a relatively small country with an area of only 111 000 square km. Even still one third of the territory is mountainous covered by approximately 40 mountains. Each one of them is unique with its specific relief, nature, flora and fauna. Bulgaria is also home to three national parks – Rila, Central Balkan and Pirin National Park.
Bansko is the most popular ski resort in Bulgaria, located in the foothills of Pirin Mountain. More and more people travel to Bansko each year in December/February attracted by low prices, quality snow and excellent accommodation.
Do you want to go back in time and experience a more romantic way of travel? To enjoy a few hours of breathtaking mountain views? Do you want to see how locals live in some of the more remote and isolated regions of Bulgaria?
The most beautiful places are often quite remote and difficult to get to. Thе meanders of Arda River have been on my bucket list for years. I travelled hundreds of kilometers to the most faraway locations in the Rhodope Mountains and finally got to see them. Totally worth it!
