Come with me on a day-hike through Slovakia that has EVERYTHING! If you have ever wanted to visit historic mountain huts while strolling past numerous waterfalls and pristine mountain lakes in one day, then this is the perfect nature trek for you!

The High Tatras of Slovakia encapsulate the intrigue of the region´s diversity – wildflowers and forests are as eclectic as the wildlife. Each level of terrain, from valley to meadow to mountain, offers its own piece of beauty, adding to the overall experience of Slovakia nature.

This program gives you the opportunity to see the oldest mountain hut in the High Tatras – Rainerova Chata – as well as the ever-popular Tery Hut. You will also get a chance to see the Zamkovsky Hut and take a short rest on your way to the valley.

The hike to Mala Studena Valley is filled with stunning waterfalls. This sightseeing trek puts you front and center of Obrovsky Waterfall and the various waterfalls of Studena Voda.

The back of the valley is home to the five mountain lakes of the Spis region.

You will start your trek from Hrebienok and visit Rainerova Chata (1,200m) as you climb the landscape to the waterfalls. We can rest at Zamkovsky Hut (1,450m) before heading into the valley.

A steep hike will take us to Tery Hut (2,010m) to look out across the Tatras. Our path back down will take us to the back of the valley to observe the five Spis lakes, and then ultimately return us to our starting point in Hrebienok.

This is an intermediate hike with a steep section, and it should take us about 5 – 7 hours to complete. You should be in reasonably good physical condition for this program.

Book this trip immediately and see the unrelenting beauty of waterfalls, valleys, and lakes – all in ONE hut-to-hut hike!

I can take you on an amazing day-hike to Krivan if you wanted a different adventure! And there is also a scrambling loop trek through the Velicka, Kacacia, and Velka Studena Valleys!

About the guide

guide profile img

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.
