Tired of the resort vibe of Bansko? Want some peace and quiet exploring the remote parts of the mountain? Join us on a snowshoeing trip in the area. You can choose among three of the most amazing mountains in Bulgaria – Rila, Pirin and Rhodope, all situated not more than an hour from the resort. While Pirin with its alpine-like appearance and steep slopes rising up to 2914 meters offers wild views, the south sides of Rila are more gentle and easy for snowshoeing.

The old villages, where people maintain the same lifestyle from 100 years ago, can be a truly unique experience worth having.

Bulgaria features notable diversity with the landscape ranging from the Alpine snow-capped peaks in Rila, Pirin and the Balkan Mountains to the mild and sunny Black Sea coast, from the typically continental Danubian Plain (ancient Moesia) in the north to the strong Mediterranean climatic influence in the valleys of Macedonia and in the lowlands in the southernmost parts of Thrace.
