Pamporovo Ski Resort

Reviewed By Mrrbrown - London, United Kingdom

Not may runs not much snow just the man-made type, but there is Sun!!! resort entertainment very sparce and dotted in minute clusters around Pamporovo a kilometer from each other so its impossible to go around to where you wont and try different types of bars or restaurants unless you have a car or transport, cant walk around to dangerous on the roads no lighting no pavements to and from each cluster of bars or restaurants, quite pricey compared to villages 16klometers away were food is a third of the price, supper markets hike their prices by three times go to villages near by, waiters in Bulgeria seem to expect to get a TIP even when food and service are terrible when u don give they give u a bad look, Dont leave tips for a sake of leaving a tip make them learn to provide a service for it

I can't recommend Dimo and the team highly enough. The two 20 years old lads who came skiing with us had no experience skiing or snowboarding and after three days of lessons, they were confidently going down the red runs and enjoying themselves.

Snowcamp Bulgaria

SnowCamp Bulgaria offers to open-minded and adventurous people from all over the world to combine learning or practicing their favourite snow sports (skiing or snowboarding) with experiencing the local culture and atmosphere of the breath-taking Rhodope Mountains in southern Bulgaria.

Reviewed By Berto C - Lugano, Switzerland

The whole concept of snowcamp shifts away from the mainstream winter holiday. It is an excellent experience that combines winter sports with a range of activities to get to know the region and local traditions.
We had a great dinner with a bagpipe player dressed with traditional clothes. I particularly liked the attention paid to the homemade food products: red wine, rakia (Bulgarian spirit), white cheese, stuffed grape leaves, yogurt, blueberries jam, a fantastic honey and many others. The range of flavours we experienced was a real delight!!

The organisers are locals who know everything about traditions and food production and shared with us many interesting facts. You can really feel their strong attachment to the region and their desire to convey the beauty of the territory.
I would recommend snowcamp to anyone that is looking for something more than the usual winter vacation on the Mountains.

FunPark Pamporovo

Reviewed By sierraromeobravo - Wheathampstead

You can really only use this fun park if your a good skier/snowboarder because a lot of it is very big. I would massively recommend WEARING A HELMET because it saved my life.
If you want big jumps, rails, full size half-pipe. This is the place.
However there are not many jumps for beginners, but the runs are excellent for them.
I will be going back for a cheap snowboarding holiday.

Waterfalls Canyon

Reviewed By StellaDimova - Sofia, Bulgaria

We visited the canyon beginning of June - turns out this was the best time for that since everything was fresh green and the river was full. The eco path goes along the riverbed where you can enjoy the views of tens of small and big Waterfalls - there were maybe four or five bigger ones, which took our breaths away. The wooden stairs and countless Bridges contribute greatly to the charm of this enchanting place. What was even more incredible were the views from above after the path went up to cross to the other side of the cliff. One can see Smolyan from each of the designated panoramic viewpoints. Throughout those three hours I constantly felt like being on Pandora from the movie Avatar - the experience was so fairy-tale like!

Momchilova Fortress

Reviewed By niki101 - London, United Kingdom

This is a majestic place! You can easily spend a few hours or even a day here. Initially, I thought that it was only a small rock. However, it proved to be a great place, in the heart of the Rhodope Mountains.
Here’s a little history. The fortress was built during the reign of Emperor Justinian I who ruled in the period 527-565. The fortification facility was successor to a Thracian rock sanctuary from the end of the 5th millennium BC. It lies in the highest spot on the territory of the fortress and offers great views of the Rhodope Mountains.
The fortress existed for a relatively short period of time. It was burnt down by the Slavs and was reconstructed around the 11th century. In 1343 it fell under the control of Rhodope ruler Momchil who was of Bulgarian origin. It functioned as a fortification facility until the invasion of the Ottomans at the end of the 14th century. At that time it was burnt down again and was never reconstructed.
There is an Information Centre where you can learn about the fortress and also to buy tickets (a very small charge) to visit the fortress. The car park is free. It takes about 20 minutes walking (and of course ascent) to reach the fortress. We did a full tour of the rock which was a beautiful experience.The views are spectacular! It is thrilling to get to the top. Here is the Thracian sanctuary: being close to something so ancient is always very touching to me. There is also remains of a medieval chapel functioned in the 13th - 14th century.
If you visit the place on Saturday evening you will enjoy a film about Momchil screened on the natural environment of the castle rocks with special smoke and light effects. Unfortunately, we didn’t know about that in advance and we missed it. It must be a great experience. Viewers watch the show from the new Amphitheatre, whose benches accommodate up to 50 people.

Momchilova Fortress lies near Gradat Village. You won’t see a church or mosque here as there are none. Fascinating!
There is a very good restaurant in Gradat Village and it is in your way to the fortress so you can’t miss it. Here we were served a delicious Bulgarian food by a cheerful waiter.

Ski School Snezhanka

Reviewed By bolence - Banja Luka

This ski school is everything you would come to expect from a professional ski school, and then some. The instructors are extremely professional, kind and funny. Maybe you are going to pay a bit more than in other ski schools, but it's worth it as you're getting fabulous service for your money. Thank you very much for two wonderful days and hope to see you soon!
