Come to Slovakia in winter, to enjoy the winter silence (only the squeaking snow under your feet) and the snowy mountain landscapes. Every morning you will set off on a winter walk to explore the High Tatras for 2 and 1/2 days. High Tatras is the smallest mountain range with an alpine character in the world, but even though still pretty fascinating. You will be walking in the mountains covered with fresh snow, enjoying tasty food and hot herbal tea in the mountain huts and geothermal pools after one of the hikes.
– Hike to remote mountain hut
– Enjoy hot drinks and hearty meals
– See amazing snowy landscapes
– Walk the Treetop path
– Relax in the thermal pools Vrbov
The hikes that we are going to walk on this trip will be of easy and medium difficulty. Everyday we will walk for approx. 10-16 km with the total vertical ascent of 400-700 metres.

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.
