10 Reasons to Visit the Tatra Mountains Right Now


Martin Talač


OCTOBER is definitely the best time of the year to come to the High Tatras… and especially Indian Summer. Why? Because the weather is stable, sunny, without any rain, temperature is pleasant for walking and views are just the best. Why? Because of the autumn colours. Just scroll below and see why.

According to the latest weather forecast, Indian summer starts today (12th Oct) and will last for about a week. So Tatra mountains might be your last minute holiday destination.

If you decide to come to Slovakia from Western Europe, I recommend you to fly to Krakow. There is an international airport operated by many companies and airfares are usually cheap. How to get from Krakow to Slovakia? This article may be helpful for you – CLICK HERE.


Morning by Lake Strbske. One of the most popular places in the High Tatras.


The main ridge of the Low Tatras mountains.


On the way to Lake Popradske. Easy hike, but rewarding.


Kopske sedlo mountain pass. If you go to remote places, probably you don´t meet so many people. Especially during the week.


Road of the freedom. You can just drive along the mountains and enjoy the views while driving around.


This may happen in October as well. The temperature sometimes drops below 0°C at night and in the morning the mountains might be covered in snow. For walking in the snow you definitely need crampons to be safe. The walking poles may be helpful as well.


Belianske Tatras are made of dolomites.



On the way to Ostrva you can see views like this.


If the weather is good, you can just lay down and enjoy the warm sun rays 🙂
