Skiing in Bulgaria

Since long ago Bulgaria has been one of the top destinations for people who wanted to visit and spend some time doing sports on the mountains in the Balkans.

The two biggest and most known mountain ranges Rila and Pirin mountain are the most popular places for this kind of activities. They have both been pronounced for National Parks and the Bulgarian government recognized their potential from a long time ago investing in real infrastructure. There you can find ski resorts and mountain huts almost under every peak of the mountains, which makes the peaks and the other points of interest easy accessible.

The peak of Musala (2925m)  on Rila mountain is the highest peak on the Balkans. The mountain has also been known for its rich flora, including species such  as Macedonian Pine,  and Bulgarian Fir.

A good starting point to reach the peak is the Ski resort of Borovetz, where you can get a cable lift from where you can start your tour.

Bansko is another popular Ski resort situated in the Pirin mountain range. The highest peak on Pirin mountain is the Vihren peak standing at 2914m. Vihren refuge is the most used mountain hut for reaching the peak. Both of the mountains are easy accessible with only 2 hours drive from the main city of Bulgaria, Sofia.
