Zakopane guided snowshoeing day tours

Our plan was for snowshoeing, but unusually warm weather meant snow cover was too light. Helena came up with a hiking route as an alternative, supplied all of the equipment and was the perfect guide. We were lucky to find such a well-suited guide as her, so thank you too, Explore-Share.

Zakopane guided snowshoeing day tours

Really great experience doing a snowshoe hike in the Tatra mountains - I was fortunate enough to have sunny weather after a few days of light snow so conditions were amazing. I just did it on my own and Helena was super accommodating and made small changes to the route on the fly to make things more interesting. To be clear if you book this experience you are booking a professional mountain guide so the route they take you on can easily be adjusted to your group requirements and where to go for best conditions . Helena was extremely knowledgeable of the area - both in terms of her knowledge of the local trail networks and in chatting to me about the history, culture and geography of the Tatra mountains as we progressed along the hike. The route we went on was about 400m elevation (which I was comfortable doing) and the view from the summit was incredible. Would definitely recommend the experience if you want a great way to explore and view the Tatra mountains

Zakopane guided snowshoeing day tours

Helena was a super personal guide for the tour. She aligned the trip to our wish (e.g. starting time, finishing nearby the thermal pool) and made a wonderful day for us. Guiding just the two of us made the whole trip very personal and flexilbe which we recommend for others as well. Thank you.

Zakopane guided snowshoeing day tours

Helena was an awesome guide, making every effort to make sure it was a good experience! She rented all the equipment and even picked me up from my hostel! She has a lot of experience with mountain sports, as well as great knowledge of the area. While we were driving to the Tatras, she gave a short driving tour of Zakopane, explaining some of the architecture and history. We snowshoed for about 4 hours on a BEAUTIFUL day. She really enriched the experience with her knowledge of the ecology!

Zbojnicka Hut, High Tatras, Guided Snowshoeing

Everything was great, thank you!


There are many reasons for choosing Snowshoeing in Slovakia

The High and Western Tatras are frequently compared with the Alps and it is not hard to see why. Boasting thick evergreen forests, many pristine mountain lakes and stunningly rugged, snow-capped peaks, there is plenty of immaculate scenery to explore. Heading out on a snowshoeing adventure is a great way to get out and see this magnificent wilderness.

More info about Snowshoeing in Slovakia:

Composed of two subranges – the High Tatras and Western Tatras – Slovakia’s Tatra Mountains are a veritable playground for snowshoeing enthusiasts. From single-day adventures to multi-day hut-to-hut expeditions, there are plenty of options from which to choose. Among the most popular options are to head on a one-day expedition to Zbojnicka hut. Starting from Hrebienok, the tour lasts 5 to 6 hours and takes participants through a biodiverse forest and up to a scenic vista. Another popular option is to head to the summit of Rysys mountain (2,503 meters/8,212 feet), which sits on the border of Slovakia and Poland. Getting to the summit allows you to stand at two countries at once and enjoy immaculate views over the rest of the range
