From Thessaloniki to the ski resort in Bulgaria (Bansko)

A relatively rare, but increasingly popular service of RELLAS company, is the transfer from Thessaloniki to the Bansko ski resort in Bulgaria. It seems that getting to Bansko from the capital of Bulgaria - Sofia, is easier and cheaper, but travelers have different circumstances. Someone wishes to combine an excursion or pilgrimage to Greece with active skiing, someone took advantage of booking very cheap air tickets to Thessaloniki in winter and someone has set a goal to visit two countries of the Schengen zone in one trip.

Bansko is a, relatively, young ski resort with good slopes and developed infrastructure. This vacation spot is good not only for skiing but also for snowboarding. There are wellness and SPA centers with mineral thermal waters and curative mud. The resort of Bansko is a part of the Pirin National Park. It includes the resort of Sandanski, which is famous for its sources of healing mineral water.

Depending on the number of passengers and luggage, the transfer from Thessaloniki to Bansko is performed on comfortable cars or mini bus of different capacity. The travel time is about 3 - 3.5 hours. The control procedure at the Greek-Bulgarian border, as a rule, takes no more than 15 minutes.
