    Day 1: Sofia, Bansko
    Arrive at the Sofia airport and keep an eye out for Travel Talk sign, hop on your free transfer to the vibrant Bansko for a week packed with plenty of skiing/snow-boarding, endless fun and unforgettable experiences. Feel free to either rest up for this incredible week, and ski it off early in the morning, or start by discovering the lively nightlife with your new tour mates.
    Day 2: Bansko
    It is time to gear up and hit the slopes for an action-packed day on the Balkan Mountains, sister range of the Alps. Get yourself ready to explore Bulgarian style of breakfasts and dinners with unlimited booze, with return shuttles, sit back and enjoy the break. Discover the lively Apres Ski in Bansko at its most famous bars as the sun goes down, and remember to spare time for Rakia tasting.
    Day 3: Bansko
    Start the day with a hefty breakfast before gearing up. Remember to charge up your GoPro and tag along with your guide and discover all the uncovered bits of on- and off-piste slopes of the region, or roam the slopes on your own. Have a glass of hot wine, but remember to always ski responsibly! Finish up partying after sundown and join your travel mates for a delicious dinner. Later on, put on your battle face for some high-stakes karaoke.
    Day 4: Bansko
    Feeling tired yet? It is just getting started, follow your guide to the best slopes the week has to offer with the best snow, weather, and no-crowd conditions. Take a break by a lovely wooden mountain hut, put your feet up by the fire and sip your warm drink – it feels like living out-of-this-world. As the slopes close down, the popular bars start to fire up with Apres Ski tunes and various traditional beverages. Meet with the group at dinner and plan out your night to your wants, your guide will point you in the right direction.
    Day 5: Bansko
    Feel free to discover Bansko and all it has to offer, ski and board through the mountain all day long, have a delicious lunch outside on the snow whilst sunbathing, and watch or even join a race to test yourself. Bansko has much more to offer than its slopes, from hiking to breath-taking peaks of Pirin with magnificent sceneries; to tasting its authentic cuisine or trying your luck to turn the holiday to a profit at one of the many mini casinos. After dinner, join your new travel mates on a night out and enjoy the vibrant bars and clubs of Bansko.
    Day 6: Bansko
    Rise and shine, and get ready to jump around the moguls and ride the half-pipes of the famous snow park. Adrenaline junkies may even jump off a helicopter for some off-piste split-boarding or paraglide at hundreds of feet up in the sky, overlooking charming snow-capped mountains and villages. Dig deep, going around town to discover its traditional restaurants and hidden cafes, blow off some steam at the Spa centre with an indoor swimming pool and jacuzzi, and enjoy some fine jazz at the famous piano bar.
    Day 7: Bansko
    Make the best of your last full day at Bulgaria’s premier ski resort, skiing until you drop, watching the magnificent scenery at timber mountain huts whilst sipping your hot wine under the sun, nailing Apres ski in ice bars with local DJs, tasting the various traditional delicacies of the region, and crawling the many bars and clubs until the sun’s up.
    Day 8: Bansko, Sofia
