Itinerary

The Tatra National Park is the largest and most important Natural Reserve in Slovakia. With its challenging hikes and breathtaking views, it rivals any mountain range in the world. The peaks and landscapes are monumental - 35 valleys, over 90 mountain lakes, and imposing waterfalls crashing into gorges.
The High Tatras are the only alpine mountains in Eastern Europe and one of the world's smallest alpine mountain ranges.

This tour is for those who like to spend as much time in the mountains as possible.
You will walk up by beautiful valleys, saddles, and mountain meadows. The mountain panorama offers an astonishing view of peaks, lakes, and waterfalls with beautiful colors during sunrises and sunsets.

The tour can extend to 7 and more days by including a visit to other remarkable places.

We recommend that you consider our guided trekking hut to hut tours as another opportunity to explore the High Tatras Mountains.
