I highly recommend Adventure Hiking in Slovakia with Slovakation. It was one of the most rewarding trips I have done. Patrik was such a fun & helpful guide. He made sure that everyone felt safe, especially when it came to the ladders & catwalks (I conquered my fear of ladders & edges!!!). There was clear communication before we arrived in Slovakia & throughout the trip, Patrik was also available for us in our free time if we needed anything. I hope to return to Slovakia one day and would do this tour again!
Just come back from the weekend adventure hiking trip in paradise national park. Was amazing and beautiful especially in Autumn. Hiking with a twist. I can’t thank Martin enough, everything you expect from a guide and much more. Extensive knowledge and a great person. I very rarely go back to the same place twice however will definitely book a different trip back in Slovakia in the near future. Solo travelled. Made some fantastic memories with people I would now consider good friends. 10/10. Thank you so much.
Slovakia is a stunning country and I couldn't have asked for a better introduction than a few days hiking in Mala Fatra National Park with a group led by Martin. Martin is a fantastic host and guide. Very nice people, lovely accommodation, amazing hot chocolate and breathtaking landscape. Thank you Martin. I will be back!
Hiking in Mala Fatra, Slovakia - One of the really beautiful walking trips I have been to and what better than being organised and led by Martin – a local who know his country so well! 4 days of awesome walks through the different terrains, gorges, ridge walks with a visit to the Spa which was an icing on the cake. Our accommodation was in the valley which offered scenic views, the staff very welcoming and pleasant. Martin ensured that we had a great time inspite of the weather… he also offered and planned an additional walk and a visit to the watch tower without any of us even asking for it – it wasn’t a part of the itinerary. Found Martin to genuinely like what he does…he did go an extra mile to ensure we had a good time. Would recommend this trip! As for me, would love to do the Slovakian Tatras when I get a chance next!
