      Tour or independent

      Bulgaria Feb 3, 2017 at 5:53 AM

      Investigating Bulgaria for 2018. Should I go independent as I had for the rest of Europe or do an organized tour.
      I do not drive, so renting is out and I'd need to use public transportation.

      Skiing - Query

      by csuresh Online Now Jan 17, 2016 at 1:51 AM

      Of the 4 days trip that we have planned, we want to spend a day at Borovets. I will be travelling with my wife and 2 kids. We want to experience Skiing there. My questions are - travelling in the last week of March - is that right season to go there? We will be renting car and do we need snow chains for tyres. Is few hours training sessions common or is it normally long hours? Do we get all equipments for rent rather than we buying - what is available and what not?
      Please let me know.

      Hello to everyone !!
      Since I have heard a lot about Borovets and its excellent ski pists and after ski facilities I have booked a room from the 7th till the 14th of Jan 2006.

      Pists are mainly for beginners or experts?? (seems that there are a lot of black ones)
      I have heard that for locals, lifts cost less than 5€ is it true??

      Borovets Prices

      by ScottLeeUK Online Now Dec 5, 2005 at 2:09 AM

      Hi all, I am traveling in a small party of 5 to Borovets in January (14th).

      We are trying to get a rough idea of how much lift passes are for a week. Anyone have a good guess as to how much they will be?

      We would also like a rough guide to how much ski hire is in resort. we are comparing this to the cost of buying equipment before we go.

      Any help greatly appreciated.

      Hi all

      I have just booked a weeks skiing in Borovets and have since discovered that the lifts are closed for half a day per week and for a whole day each month for maintanence/service. Whilst this is good news for saftey, it is not particularly good for getting any ski. Does anyone know the dates or days of these lift closures so alternative activities can be arranged?

      Many thanks
