Two main airports serve Bansko, Sofia (around 160 km away) and Plovdiv (around 180 km away). A proposal for Bansko’s own airport is well advanced, but no construction has started as of October 2018.

Perhaps the most interesting way to get to Basnko is via the narrow-gauge train from Septemvri. Traversing beautiful mountains and valleys and passing by countless rural Bulgarian villages, the train is considered by some as one of the most scenic rides in the Balkans . Septemvri is on the main rail line between Sofia and Plovdiv, so access is quite easy. However, this is not the most practical route to Bansko by any means, as the train takes just under 5 hours with an operating speed of just 30–50 km/h to complete a journey doable in 1½ hours by car. For those with the extra flexibility required for the ride, however, this is the way to get to Bansko. See BDZ for timetables.

The nearest rail station served by standard-gauge trains lies in Blagoevgrad. Blagoevgrad lies on the main line from Sofia south and is easily accessible from the city, from which buses to Bansko are plentiful.
