How to get there

Sofia Airport

Getting to Bansko has never been easier, a 3 hour flight to the historical city of Sofia. Depending on the time of year you can try use from Gatwick & Manchester, from Luton, from Manchester, from Dublin, for flights from London.

You can also fly to and from Thessaloniki in Greece which is approx 250 km away.

Transfers from Sofia Airport to Bansko are approx 2.5 hours which gives you a chance to take in the lovely countryside of Bulgaria.

By Car- Hiring a car can start from as little as GBP 15.00 a day (see or (you can hire a car out in Bansko if you wanted just a few days hire). I have also used the various brokers you can find on the internet, they tend to meet you at the airport and are very reputable.

By Coach – Frequent service during the day only to Bansko. The coach station is approx. 5 mins drive from the Airport (centre of Sofia city centre) - see (approx GBP 7.00 return). The coaches are comfortable (with toilet and air conditioning) and you will experience great views of the countryside & stop half way at a taverna for a break! this service only runs in the ski season.

Courtesy car/ taxi – works out approx GBP70.00 each way (per car not per person) – haggle if need be for this price – don’t pay any more! We can put you in touch with an English speaking coach/taxi/minibus service.

Or you can e-mail the complex and they will arrange collection/return to the Airport - for approx £50.00 each way (not per person)
