Amazing trip to Slovakia and the paradise national Park. Martin our guide was awesome, humble, friendly and good fun. Highly recommend this company and trip..i would 100% do it all again. Thanks Martin

Daniel

Martin is absolutely superb from start to finish. He makes the whole trip run completely seamlessly and flexes his approach based on the group’s ability. Three days of trekking across different areas within the High Tatras. Each trek has super views and are challenging in their own way.

Great trip with Slovakation hiking around the Tatras Mountains. We did 3 hikes up to different lakes and stopped at a mountain hut for food each time. The views were incredible and our guide Tomas was so knowledgeable on the landscape and history and culture of Slovakia. Would highly recommend!
