Come to Slovakia in winter, to enjoy the winter silence (only the squeaking snow under your feet) and the icy mountain landscapes. Every morning you will set off on a winter walk to explore the High Tatras for 3 days and Mala Fatra on 1 day. High Tatras is the smallest mountain range in the world with an alpine character, but even though still pretty fascinating. You will be walking in the mountains covered with fresh snow, enjoy tasty food and hot herbal tea in the mountain huts and hot thermal springs on one of the evenings.
– Hike to mountain huts and hotels and enjoy tasty meals
– See amazing mountainous landscapes
– Visit Strbske pleso and have a coffee in a cafe with the best view in entire Slovakia
– Relax in the Thermal water park Vrbov
All these activities are optional. You can choose to stay in the hotel and relax or make the program on your own. You can take skiing lessons or visit one of the towns nearby.
You can fly to our meeting point at Krakow Airport from many European cities (London, Dublin, Brussels, Berlin, Munich, Dortmund, Amsterdam etc), where you will be met at 16:00 on the first day and dropped off on the last day at around 12:00. You can also travel by FlixBus from Berlin and other places directly to Krakow Airport.
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. The longest hike will be 16 km long with 700m of vertical ascent in the High Tatras mountains. You don´t need any previous experience with hiking, just to be in a good shape to be able to walk the hikes every day.
