Skiing is well-established in Bulgaria, with the season running from December to April. Mt Vitosha, on the southern outskirts of Sofia, is the most accessible of Bulgaria's ski areas; but the largest resort is at Borovets, 70 km (43 mi) south of Sofia, which has the highest mountains in the Balkans as a backdrop.
Pamporovo in the Rodopi Mountains is popular with package tourists and Bansko in the Pirin Mountains is Bulgaria's least commercialised ski resort. Mountain climbing is feasible and you don't have to be Edmund Hillary to scale Musala Peak.
There are less strenuous hiking possibilities in the Stara Planina range and in the Rodopi Mountains.
