    Take a walk with me through the gorgeous lakes of Slovakia while we hike to Koprovsky Stit. Nothing beats a stroll through fields of wildflowers while gazing at the unique wildlife of the High Tatras!

    The hills and valleys surrounding Koprovsky are quiet and charming, offering some of the best paths for exploring the incredible countryside of Slovakia. From forests and flowers to lakes and meadows, enjoy a day-hike that provides fascinating scenery for every adventurer.

    You will also meet the largest and deepest glacial lake on the Slovak side of the High Tatras – Hincovo Pleso. At 1,950 meters, it´s a perfect stop on your way to Koprovsky.

    The views from the peak of Koprovsky (2,363m) are just as intriguing. To the west, you will see Krivan, the symbol of Slovakia and one of its most important mountains. The east boasts a skyline loaded with the peaks of the Tatras in photographic panoramas.

    Our adventure begins at Strbske Pleso (1,350m), where we head steadily through Mengusovska Valley. Along the abundance of incredible paths, we will hike around Popradske Pleso and continue up to the deepest lake in the Tatras, Hincovo Pleso (1,950m).

    Continue sightseeing as you weave along the trails until you reach the summit of Koprovsky (2,363m). The views will delight you as you look out over the entire region of lush valleys and take in the amazing landscape of Krivan and the High Tatras peaks.

    This is an intermediate trek that will last about 10 hours. While there is no technical hiking required, you will want to be in reasonably good physical condition.

    About the Guide

     
     

    I'm a UIMLA mountain leader and national tourist guide (for cultural and historical heritage trips).

    I was born in Poprad in 1969. From my early childhood, I often looked out my bedroom window into the distance of the picturesque High Tatras, which fascinated me even then. In high school I started going with my friends to a small climbing "expedition" on the surrounding rocks, and later to the High Tatras. Mostly I went with a friend whose father was a member of the Mountain Rescue Service. During my studies at Comenius University in Bratislava, I loved coming back to the mountains.
    In 1999 I started actively volunteering paramedic of the Tatra Mountain Rescue Service, and then I was hired there.
    Precisely because of my relationship with the mountains I began working as a tourist guide with a focus on mountain areas.
    Since 1998 I accompany tourists from around the world to the mountains and surrounding towns.
    In 2011 I got certified as mountain leader.
    Besides, I have been working as a member of the Council of the Slovak Association of mountain Leaders since it was established in 2011.

    What People are Saying about Marcel Kubinsky

     

    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.

    Absolutely brilliant day! Marcel is a great guide, knowledgeable and very safe as well as being really funny and a genuinely lovely guy. The via ferrata route was really interesting, different to Italy as it follows along the river and waterfalls. Beautiful. Marcel recommended other walks for us to do and how to get there via public transport. He was a real help. He picked us up from our accommodation and provided our equipment.
