Itinerary

Join us on this 6-day hut to hut trek in the heart of the High Tatra Mountains.
It is a technically non-demanding but diverse trek for all people who like to spend nights in mountain huts.

Starting from Tatranska Kotlina settlement, we will head to the lovely Tatra forests. The trek will take us across the huts, valleys, and lakes towards the highest peaks of the High 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.

Expect to walk 5-7 hours and overcome 700 altitude meters daily. The tour is adaptable to your preferences and abilities, but a reasonable fitness level is required to enjoy the hike.
