How To Get To Bansko

Flights

If you are coming via plane you will arrive in Bulgaria at Sofia Airport or Plovdiv Airport. There are frequent daily flights to Sofia from all over Europe. The route via Sofia to Bansko is also serviced by the most popular low cost airlines in Europe – EasyJetWizz Air, RyanAir . There are some flights to Plovdiv city as well, however they are not so many and regular.

If you plan to visit the Bulgarian seaside before or after the camp you can get a flight to the cities of Burgas and Varna. There are plenty of seasonal affordable flights to these cities in the summer. However, please note that the trip from Varna and Burgas to Bansko by car will take more time.

If you are from Bulgaria’s neighbouring countries, you might be coming by car all the way. If you are arriving in Bulgaria from Greece trough Kulata – then just follow the traffic signs. From Turkey you will go through Trakia highway. From Romania and Serbia, you will go through Sofia.
