Plovdiv Airport – Bansko

Airport Transfer Description

Description: The distance between Bansko and Plovdiv Airport is 186 km or 116 miles, which during the summer can be covered in less than 3 hours. During the winter it is always it is snowy or icy, which limits the speed and makes overtakings risky. There are two alternative routes. The one via Belovo is half an hour shorter, but the road is poorly maintained. We prefer the one via Velingrad, which is famous as the spa capital of Bulgaria. It is after Velingrad that we start crossing the mountains, which makes it an excellent place for a stop. It is a difficult airport transfer both for the customers and the driver as the road is narrow and curves through the Rhodope mountains. At night there is not much to be seen and it is just a long, exhausting trip, but travelling daytime will give you the chance to see the true  beauty of the mountain.
