6 reasons to visit Bansko this fall!
Some places are worth visiting every season. One such place is Bansko. What is especially attractive in the autumn season in this picturesque mountain town, located between the capital of Bulgaria - Sofia and the second most important city in Greece - Thessaloniki. Let’s find out!
The truth is - summer is over. We put away our summer dresses, surfboards and beach umbrellas. We took many pictures of ice-cold cocktails, frappes and sunbeams glistening on the surface of the water. What is left for us but to boldly change our wardrobe, put on something comfortable and go on a new journey? This time to the evergreen forests of Pirin Mountain.
1. Embraced by the forest.
There is nothing more soothing and at the same time invigorating than a walk among centuries-old, green forests. Right in front of the entrance of the Premier Luxury Mountain Resort, 3 marked easy hiking trails start, which will lead you through beautiful forest views. You will meet mountain streams, birds and meters long trees on roads dotted with cones, mosses and golden leaves. Very often the sky will be beautifully autumn blue and soothing. From time to time above the tops of the pines, you will see Vihren peak (the second highest peak in Bulgaria) and Todorka peak, a favourite of all skiers and snowboarders.
2. Spa pleasures.
The ideal time to indulge in Spa pleasures is in autumn. After a wonderful walk in the woods, a massage accompanied by a sauna or steam room will make your senses celebrate. The original Spa treatments at Le Spa (Premier Luxury Mountain Resort) aim to revitalize, renew and recharge your body with a lot of positive and healthy energy. Combined with a heated indoor pool, Kneipp path and ice bucket, the wonderful feeling that you have taken care of yourself will stay with you for a long time.
3. The famous hot springs are just 5 km from Bansko.
If you are a fan of hot springs, the perfect place for this is only 10 minutes car drive from Premier Luxury Mountain Resort, to the neighbouring village of Banya. You have a choice of different in style, comfort and atmosphere pools. What unites them all is the divine hot mineral water. More than ⅓ of all mineral springs in all of Southwestern Bulgaria is located in the village of Banya. The temperature of the springs is between 37 and 56 degrees. The water has no smell and is slightly mineralized, which makes it suitable for almost everyone.
4. Walk to hut Vihren.
The hot months have passed and the pleasure of outdoor sports, at a pleasant temperature, can not be replaced by anything. This time we recommend a hike up in the mountain. In good autumn weather, even above 2000 m above sea level, it will be a wonderful walk for vitalization and connection with the beautiful nature of the Pirin Mountains. We suggest you walk from hut Banderitsa to hut Vihren. The hike is easy and you can choose between an eco-trail or a small car road. It will take you about 30 minutes one way. From Premier Luxury Mountain Resort to hut Banderitsa is a picturesque 30 min car drive.
5. A delicious meal at the A-la-Carte restaurant Amvrosia.
The culinary pleasures you can experience in the A-la-carte restaurant of the Premier Luxury Mountain resort will ignite your senses for more and more. Start the day with a delicious and lavish breakfast buffet. Local products, high-quality ingredients and attention to detail will make your breakfast wonderful. For lunch, try our warm appetizers and soups. For dinner, experiment with something new, something exotic that you haven't tried before. Immerse yourself in the culinary experience.
6. Halloween Moon.
The time for delicious pumpkin dishes is here. We recommend you to try the special "Happy Halloween" of the Premier Luxury Mountain Resort menu with pumpkin cream soup, salmon with roasted pumpkin and of course the sweet temptation Pumpkin cheesecake.
The last weekend of October put on your scary costume, turn on the lights of the pumpkin lantern and welcome to Bansko!
