FAQs: Snowshoeing in Slovakia

What should I know about Snowshoeing 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.

Why should I choose Slovakia for my Snowshoeing adventure?

Stunning scenery

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.

Climb Gerlachovský štít

Rising to 2,655 meters (8,711 feet) in elevation, Gerlachovský štít is the highest peak in the Tatra Mountains and in Slovakia. Spending a day (or more) making your way up to the summit is a great way to experience the stunning wilderness as well as get some great views out over the rest of the range and Slovakia.

Head out hut-to-hut

Boasting an interconnected system of huts that span across the Tatras mountain range, heading out on a hut-to-hut snowshoe expedition is always a good idea. This kind of adventure gives you the chance to traverse this incredible wilderness, climbing many of the range’s highest peaks en route. From a weekend to an entire week, there are plenty of different circuits and trails to follow.

What can I expect from the weather in Slovakia?

During the winter, average daily temperatures hover around -5 ºC (23 ºF) in the Slovak Tatras. Winter is also the driest time of year, with an average of 25 to 40 millimeters (1 to 1.6 inches) of snow falling each month.

How can I get to Slovakia?

Any trip to the Tatras in Slovakia begins with a flight into Košice International Airport (KSC). From here, it is easiest to rent a car and drive to the starting point of the trip.

What people are saying about Snowshoeing | Slovakia



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.



Absolutely amazing experiance with very friendly and knowledgeable guide.



We really liked snowshoeing. Guide was wonderful, snowshoeing wasn’t easy but view was amazing. I really recommend that’s experience!



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
