Pamporovo is in the heart of the Rhodope mountains about 250km form Sofia and 85km from Plovdiv.It is the southernmost ski resort in Europe, with an average winter sunshine of 120 days - but the snow isreliable. (consider how unreliable the snow cover was in many European resorts 2006/7).Resort altitude is 1650M and temperatures average a pleasant -3C. Ski season is mid December to early April.Average snowfall 1.5M The peak is Snejanka (Snow White) at 1926M.There is virtually no risk of avalanche.

Summer in Pamporovo and Rhodope Mountain region Pamporovo is the southern most ski resort in Europe and the sunniest mountain resort in Bulgaria. Summer temperatures range from May 10C -20C with similar temperatures at the start of October.This is the time for hunting wild boar - excursions can be arranged. The autumn leaves are spectacular (New England Fall but in Europe). July and August can reach an average high of 24c and low rainfall July through September (about 30mm during each of these months, August being driest).

Car Hire during summer is recommended to take advantage of exploring the beautiful mountain area. A small family car would be adequate around £170 per week. The drive from the airport (Sofia) to Forest Nook takes about 3 hours and the scenery is lovely.

Witness the rural splendor. Visit the "emerald eyes" of the Rhodope mountain area - the Smolyan Lakes.The deepest and most beautiful of the seven lakes is Muddy Lake (not muddy!). Devin Spa is famous and you could treat yourself! The Yagodina Cave is the longest cave in Bulgaria and is several storeys high in parts. You can take a tour which highlights the remarkable stalactites and stalagmites, which in places resemble curtains. Neolithic settlers lived in the caves in the 6th millennium BC. There is a spectacular underground waterfall 42m fall in the Devil''s Throat cave - so called because objects allowed to flow in do not flow out. The Trigradska River flows through the fantastic Devil's Throat Cave . Stretching 7,000 meters the water forms eighteen waterfalls and exits onto a canyon. It leads to the Trigad Gorge, a breathtaking natural phenomenon. Its incomparable karst formation is the most impressive natural sight in Bulgaria.

Off the slopes - Apres Ski

Pamporovo has apres ski with value prices. Of note are:
The underground nightclub and discotheque at Forest Nook 3 BJs bar in the lobby of Hotel Perelik
Dak's Bar on the ground floor of Hotel Snejanka Night Flight in Hotel Rojen. A new disco, the largest in Pamporovo. Very good party Spider Night Club.

The White Hart Pub in the centre of Pamporovo. Traditional pub good for party, good for food from pub grub, bangers and mash to T bone steaks. Vegetarian pizza ande pasta dishes.

Restaurants in Smolyan offer excellent value. Try a traditional Bulgarian evening out at the Bacchus
restaurant with excellent food and staff in traditional dress and music. For good food at value prices
try the restaurant Rhodopsi Kat in Smolyan.

Local tips
Restaurants in Smolyan are much better value than those in Pamporovo. There is a new Billa supermarket in Smolyan. Smolyan is also good for leather goods - especially leather boots.
Late deals in March - not just for accommodation but for even more reduced ski lift passes. Free lift passes on 9 and 12 April 2012.

Ancient Plovdiv is contemporary to Troy and there are Roman ruins and Roman roads. There is a Roman amphitheatre still in use today. The lovely old town has been restored to its mid 19th century appearance. Plovdiv is definitely worth a visit. Modern Plovdiv is Bulgaria's second city.
The children would appreciate a visit to the water park, Aqua Land in Plovdiv.

Zlatograd is an outdoor museum of the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries - the Enlightenment period in Bulgaria.

Summer in the Pamporovo/Rhodopi Mountain - rural retreat or active Mountain Bike Park Pamporovo opens 30 June 2012.

Although it is primarily a winter resort Pamporovo is also pleasant to visit off season, the picturesque surrounding mountains with peaks of up to 2000 metres (6550 ft) make for ideal hiking and mountain biking in the summer. Sunshine is generally reliable at 20-23C.

"NEWS FLASH!!! Pamporovo Mountain Bike Park opened 30n June 2012.
Looking for a cheaper alternative to the Alps?? Ever thought of Bulgaria?? Why would we suggest this??

One area, price of food and drink, but it goes beyond this. Accommodation, uplift, travel, in fact everything. Trails that are deserted, unmolested and raw, fantastic weather, friendly local riders, a number of other activities, paragliding, wakeboarding, atv's, horseriding etc etc all at a fraction of what you would pay in the Alps.

In Devin you will find the Vacha Dam/reservoir where you could water ski or alternatively Dospat Dam hosts a number of water sports in which you could partake.. Don't forget the water canyons in Smolyan: this is a breath taking walk with magnificent views, you could try abseiling down one of the water canyons.

Forest Nook has an Activities Centre. e.g on offer in winter Off road ATV, Off road safari, mountain winter hikes (with guide) and snowshoeing. In summer Via Ferrata, canoeing,caves, off road ATV, off road safari,excursions, mountain hiking, mountain biking, horse riding, Quad bikingBudget skiing in winter. Activity holiday in summer. Our mountain guide, Dicho, would be happy to arrangevirtually any activity. He is also a qualified ski instructor and will give lessons at very reasonable rates.

If you want excitement Arda is well worth a visit, there is caving, bungie jumping and a whole host of activities. Quad bikes and bicycles are available to rent in Pamporovo and Smolyan.

For a little fun try paintballing at Smolyan Lakes or a day's fishing. You can go angling around Pamporovo, on fishing trips in Chepelare's surroundings. In the river which cuts through the town. It is possible to fish for trout, but you have to go a little further away if you will find the best fishing opportunities.

You may be able to horse ride to Greece from Arda. There is a possibility of horse riding holidays/pony trekking trips; which would use the chalets as a base. Just a ten minute drive away (a car can be arranged to take you there and bring you back). There is a riding school which caters for both novice and advanced riders. You can ride into the surrounding forest for anhour or trek into the beautiful scenery of the Rhodopes for up to 3 days. Ask for the riding guide Stefan.

THe World Car Rally came to the Balkans for the first time in July 2010. There is plenty of exciting driving in the mountain areas.

History:
The Rhodopes is home of the mythical singer Orpheus and the clan of guards of the sanctuary of Dionysus. Archaeological excavations date back to the 7th century BC. There are remains of Thracian fortresses which guarded an ancient Thracian road from Abdera, on the Aegean coast, to Istros on the Danube. The churches and chapels date back to the Bulgarian Revival period (1762-1878) when cultural and educational life flourished in the region. 15 chapels are considered of regional historic significance. The Bachkovo Monastery is a must see. Visit Veliko Turnavo - city of the Bulgarian Tsars, many centuries ago. Perperikon, Bulgaria's Delphi: the Ancient City of Excessive Pleasures Perperikon (changed through the years from the Greek name Hyperperakion) is the most significant archaeological find on Bulgarian territory for the last 20 years. Scientists believe that it was precisely Perperikon that was the temple of Dionysus described by Herodotus, which used to rival Delphi in Antiquity.

Nature:
For a summer rural retreat with breathtaking scenery

Wildlife:
The Rhodopes are a haven for bird watchers,and contain over 200 species - many of which are rare. You may see Golden Eagle, or dippers and kingfishers by streams. The highland lakes are really beautiful blue. There are lush meadows home to an abundance of wild flowers - many are not found anywhere else on Earth. According to legend the flower Silivriak with its pink petals (spring) bloomed out of the blood of Orpheus after he was dismembered. Silivriak (heberlea rhodopaensis) is the symbol of the Rhodopes. The region is famous for mushrooms and herbs.The Rhodopes are one of the few mountain ranges in Euirope where Brown Bear and wolves still live. There are guided walks on the wildlfe,birds and the rare plants and flowers and lovely walks and excursions into the Rhodopi mountains. The ski lifts run in summer.

Pamporovo is the southern most ski resort in Europe and the sunniest mountain resort in Bulgaria. Summer temperatures range from May 10C -20C with similar temperatures at the start of October.This is the time for hunting wild boar - excursions can be arranged.

2 Centre holidays - relax on the beach after an activity holiday in the mountains. For those wanting to see more of Bulgaria, why not consider a two centre summer holiday with a week at Chalets at Pamporovo Village and a week on the Black Sea coast. Most car rental firms will allow a pick up and drop off at different airports.

We are not far from the Greek Aegean coast.There is a new road through the mountains (via Zlatograd) to Xanthi which will reduce the journey time to just 90 minutes. You can reach Chalkidiki in 3 hours. You could rent a place there for a few days, but at present you would have to return the hire car to a location in Bulgaria.Check your hire firm will accept use of the car across the border - we can recommend and arrange car hire for such purposes.
