Christmas Weekend Breaks

This year why not consider booking one of the many christmas weekend breaks and forget the stress of cooking up a roast, buying all those last minute gifts and rushing around finalising errands? Instead, let Balkan Holidays take care of giving you a wonderful Christmas on the snowy slopes of Bulgaria.

Bansko is a favourite amongst skiers in the know. This listed World Heritage Site improves year-on-year with more than 65km of marked ski runs appropriate for all levels, an extensive lift network, snow cannons, snow boarding facilities and winter sports ‘fun park’.


There is loads for kids to do and plenty for the whole family, who will be thrilled to enjoy Christmas Day on the stunning slopes and then warming up with dinner in a traditional Mehana, with roaring log fires, live music, fine wine and hearty food.

Alternatively Pamporovo is a lovely quiet resort, to take the whole family to. There are excellent children’s facilities, including a ski kindergarten for 5-8yr olds and Ski School for 8-11yr olds, so you can be sure that everyone gets the most out of their stay. The resort itself is stunning, set high in the Rhodope Mountain in southern Bulgaria, amongst magnificent pine forests and with an average of 270 sunny days a year, Pamporovo is famed for being the sunniest resort in Europe.

Borovets is another excellent choice in Bulgaria. Set amidst the stunning summits of the Rila Mountains at an altitude of 1320 metres, Borovets is the perfect ski resort offering 40km of great ski runs and a lively après ski scene. The resort offers a range of facilities for every age and every level of skier and boarder.

Wherever you choose to be for Christmas, you will truly find it a delight. Children will be thrilled at a snowy Christmas and will revel in the thought of Santa and his reindeer flying through the glassy skies and landing in the pristine snow. Teens will enjoy the party atmosphere of the lively resorts and the family will love the chance to come together in cosy mehanas, singing a long to a tune or two.

Balkan Holidays have a number of christmas weekend breaks and New Year packages, to these resorts over Christmas.

Prices over Christmas are excellent value, starting at just £351 per person* for a seven night stay in Pamporovo.

This priced is based on departures on December 20th from Gatwick, staying at the three star plus Monastery 2 Apartments on a self catering basis, with six sharing.

Balkan Holidays is the UK’s leading specialist tour operator to Bulgaria and Croatia. To Bulgaria we offer the widest choice of winter ski and summer sun holidays to nearly two hundred hotels in 15 resorts from 20 departure airports.
