High Tatras Best Hiking Tours

Hiking tours with overnights in one hotel

A tour, with overnights at the same hotel, offers the possibility of day hikes of your choice. You can do shorter hiking trips or more challenging routes taking a whole day.
Easy or hard, you may enrich the hiking by a cable car ride with panoramic views.

We recommend accommodation in one of High Tatras tourist resorts - Stary Smokovec, Tatranska Lomnica, or Strbske Pleso.
All these places are great starting points to certain hikes. Of course, you can take a short train or bus ride to travel between these resorts.
