Every year in late autumn (usually in October), a natural spectacle takes place with a firework display of colours in Slovakia, we call it Indian summer (Babie leto in Slovak language). The transition into the cold season is heralded by the first colouring of the leaves on the trees. However, before the first snow falls, nature in Slovakia is still on top form. Leaves of green, red, yellow and brown gleam in the bright sunshine and the dark green of conifers provides a breath-taking contrast in the deep woods. Indian summer is accompanied by sunny, clear, warm and dry weather. Incomparable impressions await you at this time as you make walking trips into the Slovak untouched natural landscapes of the national parks and nature reserves - Low Tatras, High Tatras, Mala Fatra, Velka Fatra, Chocske hills or just local hills above the villages.
