Description

Have you been dreaming of reaching the summit of a mountain or perhaps several? You can end your search right here because the Tatras mountains provide the perfect peaks to fulfil this desire!

This stunning mountain range is found at the border between Southern Poland and Northern Slovakia. The Tatras are the tallest sub-range within the greater Carpathians Mountains. Mount Gerlach is the peak that rises above the rest and it stretches up 2,655m above sea level.

Aside from Gerlach, there are 14 peaks over 2,400m so you will be spoilt for choice. These are; Lomnica, Lodowy Szczyt, Durny Szczyt, Wysoka, Kieżmarski, Kończysta, Baranie Rogi, Rysy, Krywań, Staroleśny, Ganek, Sławkowski and Pośrednia Grań.

They vary in their difficulty with some being easy and others such as Durny or Pośrednia Grań being much harder.

I can cater this trip to meet your needs, abilities and experience. If you’re short on experience then I suggest 1-2 days spent on mountaineering techniques (Ice axe, Crampons etc.) and some avalanche awareness.

Once we’re ready to go, we can spend as many days as you would like ascending the different mountain peaks!

Will we select the summits based on your physical fitness, experience, technical abilities and the weather conditions in the moment.

These beautiful mountains are where I learnt to climb and therefore they are close to my heart, I know them intimately and can share their secrets!

I operate my trips in small groups of 2 people so that I can optimise our experience together and so that I can prioritise your safety at all moments.

So here it is, the opportunity to ascend 1 or more mountain peaks in a stunning wild landscape. Sign up now to enjoy this experience and create unforgettable memories!

Mountain Guide

I started my adventure with climbing in the early nineties. Through almost three decades, I have managed to reach hundreds of peaks and climb an uncountable numbers of routes all around the world. In Patagonia I climbed both Cerro Torre and Fitz Roy (and some more), I set up new routes in Karakoram climbing an unconquered peak there. I have enjoyed many climbs in Alaska, the Alps and the Dolomites, both in winter and summer. Still, the Polish Tatras hold a special place in my heart as these are the mountains that carved my climbing attitude and character. Winter is my favourite season there – wilderness and the alpine character of the mountains can deliver unforgettable experiences.

Mountain lovers can find a full variety of different challenges in Tatras – solemn granite peaks, demanding big-walls, interesting mixed-climbing, great off-piste areas and wild valleys waiting for ski touring fans. Although I have travelled the world in search of beautiful goals, I have been constantly coming back to fulfil my mountain passions in Tatras. And I am sure there is still so much more to be discovered there.

As an IFMGA guide and a seasoned climber, I invite you to discover mountains with me. Decades of exploration in that mountains have led me to who I am today – a professional mountain guide ready to share my mountain experience with you in Tatras or any other part of the mountain world.

Whether you want to climb a peak or ridge, ski off-piste or discover new places - I am here to help you make your dream come true. My point as a guide is to get you to safely fulfil your mountain dream. If you don’t have any yet – don’t worry, with my experience and your skills we will definitely find a suitable adventure for you!

I am an IFMGA/IVBV/UIAGM certified mountain guide and a member of Polish Association of High-mountain Guides.

Jakub was an excellent guide. I told him of my experience and he chose a perfect route. Demanding but fun and manageable. He also gave me a great history of the route and a wealth of information about the area.

Jakub was an excellent host and guide. He planned multiple routes each day to allow for any changes within the weather and conditions and provided a plethora of information regarding the Tatras, climbing and Polish culture to make the trip an immersive experience. Given Jakubs extensive climbing experience and as a climber myself, I learned a lot within the 3 days. Whether a complete novice or someone with experience Jakub tailors each trip to your experience and I would highly recommend his guiding services, and personally will be using Jakub to fulfil future climbing goals myself.

Jakub was absolutely brilliant. It was the first time climbing in the Polish Tatra's as well as in winter. I wanted to get a general idea and orientation of the Tatra mountain range. As a climber, I was very impressed with his guiding abilities, both as a climber as well as his knowledge of the history of the area as well. He organized every aspect of the trip down to the detail while maintaining a very comfortable and casual attitude about the day. His experience and ability as a climber was matched only by his fantastic personality and friendliness. I enjoyed our time and trip and will be looking forward to the next climb this summer!

We had a fantastic ski touring day with Jakub. The Tatras are fascinating mountains and at the same time a fairly severe environment and we felt comfortable doing this last -and more complicated- climb with the guide. We appreciated the fact that Jakub, besides being a great guide, is a real lover of these mountains and told us many things about this place and its history. We were also very happy with all the support of explore-share that really made all the steps easy. It is an experience that we certainly feel to recommend.
