The Hut to Hut Trekking Tour is intended for travellers, who enjoy hiking, being outdoors and want to stay independent during the tour. On the other hand they don´t have enough time to gather all the necessary information about the area, accommodation and hiking. We will arrange the accommodation at the mountain huts, help you with your arrival to the High Tatras and give you the notes to complete the trek. The starting point is in Tatranska Lomnica and finish in Strbske pleso. If you need any help or advice with travelling to the Tatra mountains, feel free to contact us.
For this tour you need to be reasonably fit, as walking with a heavy backpack requires certain level of physical fitness. Everyday you will walk for approximately 15 km and ascend 800 meters on average. There is at least one short part on this tour, that involves elements of scrambling, so previous experience with scrambling is welcomed.
You can learn more information about the program of the tour in itinerary and FAQs (info about weather, food, what you need…) or you can write us an email, if you can´f find any information.
This tour is available from 15th June till 31st October, due to the seasonal closure of hiking trails.
NOTE: The tour is 5 nights long and we book all the nights for you. You will just have to pay for 2 nights with food personally in the mountain hotel for the 4th and 5th nights, because they only accept payments personally by cash or card. The cost varies from 75 EUR to 125 EUR/person, depending on the room booked.
Tip: Walking with a heavy backpack is much easier with hiking poles, so we recommend you to bring along a pair.

Hut by the Green Lake
Your trek starts in the village of Tatranska Lomnica. The village is reachable by train or bus from the town of Poprad. We recommend to arrive to Tatranska Lomnica latest at 14:00 in order to have enough time for the first hike.
If you need an overnight after your arrival the day before, we recommend to find the accommodation directly in Tatranska Lomnica. Contact us, if you need any help or advice with the booking.
From Tatranska Lomnica you will walk to my most favourite place in the High Tatras, where you will spend the night. The place is called the Green Lake and there was built a cozy hut on its shore. The name of the lake was not chosen by any coincidence and you will understand why right after you come there.
Km walked: 12,2 / Meters ascended: 855
After leaving the hut in the morning, you will walk on a zig zag path to the top of the peak Velka Svistovka, which is more than 2000 m high. In the surroundings of this peak it´s possible to see the chamoix, so don´t forget to stop every now and then and look around to find them.
Km walked: 8,6/ Meters ascended: 615
Today you can leave the heavy backpack in your room, because you will spend there the following night as well. There are more possibilities on this day. I recommend you to walk through the Big Cold Valley, where you can see 26 smaller or bigger lakes. There is no other valley with so many lakes in the Tatras.
3 optional hikes today
Popradske Lake Mountain hotel
Do you like walking in a labyrinth? Today you are going to walk through one. Well, it´s not a real labyrinth, but I always feel like in a labyrinth when I walk this path. It´s because of a narrow hiking trail in the dwarf pines. On this day you can rest and have a lunch on the highest situated mountain hotel in the central Europe. In the evening you will come to the Popradske Lake, where you´re going to spend the night in one of the hotels.
Km walked: 19,8 / Meters ascended: 1196
Peak Rysy or Peak Koprovsky
Today you can choose from two TOPs. The more challenging possibility is a hike to the peak Rysy (2500 m. a.s.l.), which is the highest peak of Slovak Tatra mountains where you can go without a mountain guide. The less challenging (but still pretty strenous) is a hike to the deepest lake of the Slovak Tatra mountains – the Hincovo lake and from there you can continue to the peak Koprovsky stit.
You will spend the night in the same hotel, so you don´t have to carry all your stuff with you during the day.
2 optional hikes today
Lake Strbske pleso
After breakfast you will walk for about 2 hrs to the finnish point of the trek – to the village of Štrbské pleso. Štrbske pleso is probably the most popular place in the High Tatras, because of the lake Štrbské pleso. If you google pictures of the High Tatras, probably a lot of photos were taken right on the shore of this lake.
After arrival, you can spend some time at Štrbské pleso or departure from the High Tatras, depending on your plans.
This itinerary is not binding. We may change the route, due to lack of free places at one of the huts. But you have to agree with it first.
We approach every booking request individually.
