Itinerary

The High Tatras walking trip is designated for everyone, who loves the mountains and likes the hiking in any season. In the spring and fall, the High Tatras are extraordinarily magical: colourful environment, snow on the top of the trees and the mountain peaks, morning mists and picturesque chalets. These tours have a romantic touch especially in the winter time.
Nature created this magical area as one of the most beautiful in the country containing about 35 mind-blowing valleys, 110 crystal clear mountain lakes and of course, overwhelming peaks. Every view from the Tatra peaks leaves a lifelong impression in the heart of a man.

Except exploring beauties of the High Tatras you will have an opportunity to relax in Aquacity Poprad aquapark and visit UNESCO sites of Levoca town and charming sprawling ruins of Spis castle.
