Itinerary

Join us on this amazing 6-day hut to hut trek in the heart of the Slovakian High Tatras Mountains.
Technically non-demanding and very diverse trek for all people who like to spend nights in mountain huts.

Starting out from Tatranska Kotlina village we will head to the lovely Tatra forests. The trek will take us across Plesnivec hut, Green lake valley (first night) and hut towards the highest peaks of Slovakian Tatra Mountains. We will sleep in mountain huts and always have the option to make an extra 'sunset hike' to one of the nearby peaks. After climbing Velka Svistovka peak we will descent to the Zamkovskeho hut for second night in the mountains. We will continue to Popradske lake (third night in the mountains) around the highest Gerlachovsky peak, and we will finish this great trip in Strbske pleso.

Expect to walk 5-7 hours and overcome 700 altitude meters daily. The tour is adaptable to your wishes but a reasonable fitness level is required for you to fully enjoy the hike. We will sleep in comfortable mountain huts. You don’t need to carry your own sleeping bag.

If you like nature & mountains, want to breathe in some fresh air & enjoy amazing alpine scenery, you will love this hike! The tour offers a lot of fun for teenagers, if they are fit enough. :)
