Jun 28 - Jul 26, 2024

Join us in Bansko, a cozy mountain town in the heart of the Pirin Mountains. This destination has become a popular hub for nomads with its blend of modern conveniences and rich cultural heritage. Hikes and outdoor activities is what Bansko is all about and the rolling mountain views bring a sense of calmness to the town - a great city life escape for the summer. We're kicking off our stay right after Bansko Nomadfest, transitioning into a Chapter of exploring rugged trails, savouring local culinary delights, and connecting with fellow nature-loving nomads.

Experience Bansko with the Tribe

Take on Bansko with the Tribe and discover all this hidden gem in Bulgaria has to offer. Open your mind to the co-created community experiences, adventures, and classic WiFi Tribe moments that'll make our time here one of a kind.

1. Discover the Heart of Bansko

The locals aren't just welcoming hosts providing cozy accommodation for outdoorsy peeps like us; they're also skilled craftsmen, talented winemakers, sculptors, painters, fantastic cooks, and great storytellers! Let's wander through the cobblestone streets of Bansko together and live like a local. 

2. Hike in Pirin National Park

Spend the day walking through the Pirin National Park. We'll be surrounded by mountains, lakes, and wildlife. From picnics in the park to horse riding  adventures, there is something for everyone. 

3. Rafting on the Struma River

Get your adrenaline pumping in the Struma River. With varying levels of difficulty, it caters to both beginners and experienced rafters.

4. Visit the Rila Monastery

This is a must-see cultural and historical site, about an hour's drive from Bansko. The monastery's architecture and art are stunning, and it's a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

5.  Explore the Capital of Bulgaria

Sofia is just a few hours' drive from Bansko. It's a fabulous blend of history, culture, and modernity. Highlights include the Alexander Nevsky Cathedral, Vitosha Boulevard for shopping, and museums.

6. Chase Waterfalls at Vitosha

Just outside Sofia, you can take the ski lift to the top of Vitosha Mountain to hike past stunning views of the city and the beautiful Boyana Waterfall. 

7. Taste the Wine

Bulgaria is known for its excellent wines and tasting it with the Tribe is a whole new VIBE! The occasion just hits differently when we're all together! The crew on our recent Buenos Aires Chapter did an Instagram Takeover and took us along for their day of wine-tasting if you want to check it out!  

8. Visit the Black Sea

A slightly longer drive but worth it for an epic weekend trip at the Bulgarian Black Sea Coast: Cities like Burgas and Varna offer beautiful beaches, lively nightlife, and cultural attractions.

Conferences and festivals are great, but when when you roll in 20-Tribers deep, they become legendary. Bansko Nomadfest will be happening from June 23 - June 30 2024 making this Chapter the ideal month of all things nomadism! The Tribe, along with hundreds of other nomads, take over Bansko for a week of mindfulness, connecting and learning. If you've been wanting to go to Nomadfest but needed a few friends to join you, now is your chance.

Highlights

The Chapter will take place as Nomadfest comes to an end making this the perfect opportunity to extend your time here with the Tribe.

We're staying in a beautifully situated home with ideal common areas. It's a 15-minute walk to “downtown” - a small town that is super walkable, with plenty of shops, cafes, and restaurants along the way. We are also very close to supermarkets and a gym.


Side note: Gaby and Karol found their favourite kebab place, and it's dangerously close to the property—but can you really have too many kebabs in Bansko?! 

Good to Know

We will have full access to a great Co-work called “Nest Cowork” at no extra cost. 


The property doesn’t have an AC, but due to Bansko being high in the mountains, while it can get warm in the sun, in the shade it doesn’t get above 24°C (75°F) during the day and it can get quite chilly at night at 13°C (55°F).

One of the most confusing things about visiting Bulgaria is that when a Bulgarian shakes their head, it actually means “OK” or “Yes”.
