Hiking in Slovakia

Conquer core European mountains high up in Slovakia

Head into the High Tatra mountains of Slovakia for some inspirational hiking. Wonder among the soaring peaks glazed over with snow, demanding hikes through thick lush forest, roll with the green-carpeted slopes cloaked with deep mountainside solitude.

Marcel has a professional but friendly approach to hiking. His love of hiking, climbing, Slovakia, history, and of course the mountains is obvious and contagious. I would recommend him to anyone from beginner or advanced outdoor person.

Explore Slovakia nature – High Tatras, Fatras

Peter was brilliant. We trekked in snow and he ensured that we were safe through all the technical sections. Especially considering we were trekking with my teenager. He secured us with ropes, had brought crampons. We changed our itinerary due to bad weather. He has us trekking in Slovak paradise And gave us the experience of Ferrata sections. It was awesome. We were blessed with one clear day and we made spectacular day out of it by hiking green lake in high tatras. All in all, Peter kept us safe, motivated and gave us brilliant hiking experience in high Tatras. He was knowledgeable and friendly. A perfect guide. Thank you for making our Slovakia trip so memorable♥️

1-Day Trek to Rysy from the Polish Side

Hello! I have been thoroughly impressed by the service and assistance that explore-share have provided the past couple years in helping to plan my trip to the High Tatras in Poland. I really appreciated the flexibility that they provided in allowing me to rearrange my trip twice owing to covid. They were responsive and communicative throughout. This trip was part of my Stag weekend celebrations and explore-share connected me with an outstanding guide in the form of Marcel - he was an excellent recommendation and we really enjoyed our guided hike in the High Tatras with him. Marcel was an outstanding professional, placed a high focus on preparing well and staying safe, and was also a great guy! Highly recommend. Many thanks and best wishes - Richard

Slovak Paradise National Park, 1 day hiking in Sucha Bela gorge

If you find yourself in Slovakia do not miss an opportunity for a hike with Marcel in Paradise National Park. He is an amazing guide, and my hike with him was a definite highlight of my almost two week vacation in three countries. He is very experienced and knowledgeable, watched over me, and kept us moving at a comfortable pace with opportunities for breaks in between. He also speaks excellent English, and always responded promptly and was in touch frequently before the trip which gave me peace of mind. He also took wonderful pictures of me and surroundings during the hike which are such fun memories to have to look back on. Again, DO NOT MISS an opportunity for a hike in Slovakia with Marcel!!

Slovak Paradise National Park, 1 day hiking in Sucha Bela gorge

Marcel is a great guide. We had a great day with him - both for the places but especially for his company. You can definitely see he loves his job, the places and showing them to people. Aside from being an expert of his own field, he has also been a great travel companion and he had many historical/anecdotical stories to share. Definitely recommended!

1-Day Trek to Rysy from the Polish Side

The hike was much more difficult than I was prepared for but it was worth every view! Marcel is a very experienced guide and very patient, and has a lot of knowledge about the Tatras mountains and surrounding regions. I would recommend Marcel to anyone who is looking for a guided trek or tour in the Tatras / Carpathian ranges, either in Poland or Slovakia :) P.S. Hiking poles are good to have while descending from Rysy peak. Thank you very much!

Marcel is a very experienced and knowledgable guide who shared with us a lot of interesting facts of the region. He also took his time to explain a lot of details to us and helped us to take wonderful photos during the hike. Being a 1st timer to hiking, he has exceeded our expectation and is a highly recommended guide to engage.

Rysy Summit, High Tatras, Slovakia, Guided Trek

Great trek with a highly qualified and friendly guide. The hike was quite challenging and would have taken us longer to reach the summit then anticipated but despite not making it to the top we had a fabulous experience with great scenery and views. Would recommend booking with Peter, a real pro.

Teryho Chata Hut, High Tatras, Guided Hike

This adventure with Peter was exactly what we wanted. We had no experience hiking in the snow (only summer hiking) so it was great to have guidance (and crampons) when we needed it. Peter told us stories about the area/mountains and was a fantastic photographer! We highly recommend.

Rysy Summit, High Tatras, Slovakia, Guided Trek

I am not a strong mountain hiker, and need many small breakes during ascending. Peter was very patient and controlling the pace very well. We were relatively lucky with the comfortable weather, and saw both wild life and beautiful High Tatras and Rysy Summit. Peter is very experienced guide and mountain rescuer, he cares these mountains dearly. You will be in good hands hiking with him. I had a wonderful day and would do it again!

Explore Slovakia nature – High Tatras, Fatras

Peter was very professional, helpful and friendly from the beginning. As my intention was to Winter Hike, Peter came prepared with all the right equipment for me. The Hike was challenging as I had 10kg bag to carry with plenty of steep hikes, I found Peter very patient and helpful. This was one of the greatest experience I have ever had and this was down to the fact Peter made sure I enjoyed my day thoroughly as a Solo Traveller! I highly recommend him to anyone who wants to visit Tatras!
