Itinerary

The High Tatras is the most magnificent mountain range and the most important center of tourism and recreation in Slovakia.

High peaks, ten of them exceeding 2,000 m EASL, enclose picturesque valleys with more than 110 shimmering glacial lakes. Each view from the top of Tatra peaks leaves an unforgettable impression in the hearts of visitors. The silence of valleys and basins, cold water of glacial lakes, silky shine of waterfalls, and monumental peaks, that all is the magical world of the Tatra National Park.

This trip is for people who enjoy spending time in the mountains. It is also suitable for less advanced hikers.
Most of the time, the hikes will keep us on the Tatranska Magistrala, a hiking trail that lines the feet of the peaks and closely follows the upper forest border.
