In the past Borovets was suitable only for the ski season, but now the management is doing their best to increase the number of tourist in summer as well. Cycle tracks, horse riding, trekking and hiking, you can do so many things here.

This is a great resort for beginners or family skiers. The facilities are excellent and it's relatively cheap to both get and stay there. Flights are easy from the UK, but you'll need a transfer taxi or equivalent, if you're not on a package tour. It takes just over an hour from Sofia airport and costs around €60 return for... More

I love coming to Borovets. I've been visiting for 10 years on the trot now and can't wait to return each year. The slopes cater for all abilities, ideal for those just starting out, and for the more experienced skier looking for a challenge. Slope access and lift functions are good and improving every year. I rarely, if ever, have... More

Borovets is an hour and a half away from Sofia and is one of the famous ski resorts in Bulgaria. Prices are as with any resort higher than the local standard but appear cheap compared to other ski resorts across the world which makes Borovets an appealing destination among those who seek snow adventures. It has multiple hotels and restaurants... More

A wonderful resort just 56 kilometers from Sofia. With developed system of lifts, suitable for skiing in winter and great hiking in the summer. You can upload as in the high mountains and take a walk in the lovely pine forests , hence the name of the resort.

Travelled here with my dad for a week of snowboarding. Was my second time at the resort however unfortunately there was very little snow due to the warm weather. Some slopes however had snow and were fantastic. Really recommend for all abilities. Loads of choice of bars and food places. I reccomend the Kebabs and also the sweet wine/ mulled... More

We stopped in the Samokov Hotel which I wont really mention, the skiing itself was great had lessons 3 days then left and went with friends, slopes are fairly decent for beginners. I had been once 6 years ago with school so I picked it up on the way through the week. It was breath taking the views and the... More

This was our third time to Borovets. Basically we love the slopes, the people and the food. Yes, there are hawkers outside bars & restaurants but they are actually very friendly & polite - they wont hassle you....and yes there are lap-dancing clubs, but we found them discrete...most certainly nothing to encroach on a family holiday. Try to include a... More
