Our customers love what we do

We joined Andrej for his trip in the Tatras mountains. What an amazing adventure! Andrej made everything so easy and fun. We were with an awesome group of people. I’d highly recommend joining one of Slovakation’s trips. 5 star ***** Even in extreme weather conditions everything was managed really well, and we got back to the airport safely and on time despite difficult driving conditions.

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!

Well organised, good itineraries and great mountain 'huts' for food and drink.
