2-day hiking ascent to Rysy, High Tatras

High Tatras

Follow Andrzej, a UIMLA certified mountain leader, and reach the highest point of the High Tatras on this 2-day hiking ascent in the border area between Slovakia and Poland.


2 Days

Jun - Oct




Slovakia and Poland are divided by the High Tatras, the highest peaks of the Carpathian Mountains. Inside this mountain range and with 2,503 meters above sea level is located Rysy, the highest summit in Poland. Come and discover this magical area on this 2-day hiking ascent.

On this ascent, all participants will contemplate the most amazing scenery surrounded by mountain lakes and lovely animals while hiking to the top of Rysy.

During the first day, we’ll go from Palenica Bialczanska to the Morskie Oko Lake in a 2-hour drive. There we’ll find the mountain hut where we’ll take a short break before starting the ascent to the summit. Then we’ll walk until we reach the Chata pod Rysmi hut in the Slovak side of the mountain. This will take us between 5 and 6 hours. On day 2 we’ll finally reach the summit after a 3 to 4 hour hike and finish the trip in Štrbské Pleso, a beautiful glacier lake.

It is a requirement for this ascent to have a very good physical condition. You will find some technical difficulties on the way, which implies an elevation gain of 1,600 meters. Please don’t forget to bring your backpack, trekking boots, warm clothing, food and water.

Are you ready for this incredible hiking adventure? So get in touch with me now and book your trip.  I will be glad to guide you in the fantastic High Tatras!

I was looking for a local guide for a hike I was planning and came across Explore-Share. They seemed to have good reviews and so decided to give them a try. The experience was very positive and completely happy with their service. I will be using them again for next trip.



Easy to set up and find the perfect trip. Informative site that is easy to use. Guides are all great to work with and communicate all arrangements needed. As simple as can be!



Thank you explore-share for a wonderful via feratta experience. We have been wanting to learn for a long time but don't have the facilities in Scotland. The guide Mitja was extremely helpful and knowledgeable, answering all my many questions and providing advice. On the day head to take another group but he quickly arranged another guide Borut, who was brilliant. We had a fantastic morning learning via ferrata at Hvadnik in the gorge. It gave us the confidence to later hire our own equipment and go out in Mojstrana. Altogether a five star + experience. Thank you.
