Great skiing on a budget

Beginner friendly slopes, a buzzing nightlife and bargains galore, what’s not to love about Bulgaria?

For the bargain ski holiday, Bulgaria has long been the go-to country of choice.

But Bulgaria is much more than a cheaper alternative to the Alps. With a wide range of easy to intermediate slopes, good restaurants, a vibrant culture and a buzzing nightlife, Bulgaria has won over a legion of ski fans who return year after year. It’s a great place to learn, family friendly and a round of drinks won’t cost the earth, making it a good choice for groups. They’ve also done much in recent years to upgrade lifts, snow-making facilities and accommodation.
