Cross Country Ski Taster in Borovets


The snowy slopes of the mountains offer a variety of ski sports. Cross-country skiing is a popular alternative to alpine skiing. Whether you are already into cross-country skiing or you are looking for something new, you are at the right place – Borovets Ski resort has a lot to offer. The sport center “Bistritsa” in Borovets offers one of the most popular and most suitable tracks for cross-country ski and biathlon in Bulgaria. The 10 km long piste of the Bistritsa sport centre is perfect for both beginners and professional cross-country skiers.


Ski & Board Traventuria is the only ski shop in Borovets where you can rent cross-country skis and boots and hire a ski instructor as well. We are located in hotel Ela at a less than a five minute walk to the Bistritsa Cross-country skiing center. No usage of the ski lifts is required to reach the cross-country trails.
