We will begin at Palenica Bialczanska at 1,000 meters. Here you may choose the optional horse carriage up to Morskie Oko.
We will travel up to the largest lake in the High Tatras, Morskie Oko (1,400m), and on to the second-deepest lake, Black Lake.
Our ascent increases in difficulty as we climb to the summit. It includes a long section of path that is aided by chains. Once we reach the summit of Rysy (2,499m), we will have a small rest.
We may choose a descent back to Palenica Bialczanska and stop by a mountain hut near Morskie Oko. Or we may choose to descend via the Slovak side of the mountain and climb down to Strbske Pleso (1,350m).
You have an optional horse carriage that will take you to Morskie Oko. This is not included in the price.
You will need to purchase mountain insurance for Slovakian Mountain Rescue Services. Any international mountain insurance will suffice.
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.
Stay up-to-date on the best adventures!
