Hi Barbora,

We have ben through Vienna and now staying in Prague for the next few days, but I must say your mountains were the highlight of our trip. Beautiful mountain range, we thoroughly enjoyed our trip with you, it was exceptionally well organized. I would strongly recommend you to anyone, thank you so much!

Hut to hut self-guided tour in the High Tatras for advanced

Hi Barbora,

We are indeed home safe, and we had a great time on our trek. Martina did a very good job of briefing us, and everything was smooth and easy...except the hiking itself! Fun, challenging routes made every day interesting, and we summited enough mountains to make our legs ache a bit. :)

The one bit of feedback I'd like to provide is that there seems to be no "check-in" process for the hike. If we were injured and unable to reach somewhere with cellphone service, no one would miss us for at least a week. We hoped Martina would suggest a few checkpoints where we could notify you that we had reached, so you'd know where to look if we went missing. It wasn't a big thing--we instead texted our friends in London each evening to let them know we were safe, but they would not be able to respond as quickly if something had gone wrong. Perhaps in the future, you can designate a few check-in points along the trek.

Otherwise, we were very happy with the experience, the arrangements you made, the route chosen, and mountain huts along the way. All in all, it was an excellent trip!

Hut to hut self-guided tour for advanced in the High Tatras

Hi Barbora,

We are home safe!
We enjoyed the Slovak mountains very much. They were very beautiful. The tour was also excellent. All the huts were nice and the walks were challenging with many options to either make the walks easier or harder. We also thought that the transfer service worked out splendidly and Martina provided us with all we needed; both maps and information.
Someday we will definitely return to the lovely Tatras mountains!
Thank you for a fantastic trip!

Kind regards

Hut to hut self-guided tour for advanced in the High Tatras

We really enjoyed the hike and it was quite challenging and nice at the same time. We hiked 143km over the 6 days. It would have nicer to do it Hut to Hut, but at the end the Hotels were nice and not that far, and the last one in Strbske Pleso had a wellness center, which was really nice after hiking and walking long distances on Wednesday and Thursday.
We took hundreds of pictures and I will definitely suggest the High Tatras to friends and family. From Poprad we went to Bratislava for a few hours, my uncle lives there so we shortly visited him and his family. Then from there we went to Prague, where we stayed for the night, and Sunday we had to drive back to Belgium.
We also met other hikers from Europe, English was an issue for a lot of Czech and Slovak people, but anyway we learned some basic words so it was all good at the end :-).
Martina's debrief was really nice and useful. We had some snow at some parts, a bit of fog, and we were really lucky, no rain at all.

Thanks for everything!

Dear Lenka,

Yes we are all home safely. I can say that we had a very very good holiday. Just the right balance of challenge and reward. The mountains, the paths and the huts were ideal and thank you for your excellent organisation. We were very pleased with the Pension Atrium. Also please thank Martina for her excellent briefing.

Very best wishes

From Hut to Hut Self-guided Tour

Hi Lenka,

Yes I was very happy with my experience of the Tatra mountains. It was a wonderful trip to your country, to see your dramatic landscapes and their natural environments which have been preserved so well. The scenery and ecology of the mountains were above expectations and I would commend your country for its sensitive treatment of these special ecosystems and habitats by only minimally interfering in these landscapes to provide just the necessary help for the visitor to experience and enjoy this unique environment. The constructed paths and the huts I think struck the right balance of making these places accessible for the committed traveller while not imposing in an over-artificial way on these pristine landscapes. Most of the information on the noticeboards about the mountains were excellent too helping to educate the visitor. It is such a privelage to be able to visit this unspoilt wilderness and to have a nature experience so different from my own country. I also felt that the huts provided the right level of service and comfort to the walker providing the essentials without getting into unnecessary and unwanted tourist satisfying. I would definitely recommend a visit to the Tatras to anyone. Thank you again and well done to you and your country.

Fondest Regards,

From Hut to Hut Self-guided Tour in the High Tatras for Advanced

Dear Lenka

We enjoyed the trip very much and want to thank you for arranging it. The first three days walking were fine but we found the fourth day too long, we were very tired by the time we reached the end and carrying various blisters and minor injuries so we did not cover the planned itinerary for days 5 and 6. We nevertheless had two very good days taking shorter walks and having a trip on the chair lift in the resort.

The accommodation and food we found satisfactory throughout and this was what we expected. We particularly liked Majlatova hut where we had an excellent triple room with private bathroom and the staff were very helpful and friendly. I am glad we stayed there for 2 nights.

Overall we were very satisfied and will recommend it to friends. As for feedback to improve the offer, I would suggest that you provide a bit more information in advance about the demands and difficulties of the route. It was a bit too difficult (long) for us given our age and fitness and walkers who are used to trails in some other countries (particularly the UK) would not expect the distances to take so long to complete. When choosing the trek we looked at the Km figures and elevation figures and thought they were within our capability. We did not account for the amount of time spent ‘rock hopping’ which we were not used to. It might be useful to ask about walkers’ background in advance and offer a shorter option (but still taking in the high saddles) for some clients.

I hope this is useful for you and wish you all the best for the future.

Best wishes
