Description

Throughout the High Tatras of Slovakia, there is an abundance of different parts to explore. And on this trip, I would like to guide you through one of  the more challenging parts, the Baranie Sedlo (2,384m). This amazing mountain saddle rests between the enormous Baranie horns and the Spissky shield. Due to its location, trekking to the Baranie Sedlo is a challenging endeavour. There are definitely some difficult spots during the 1,300 metres of elevation you will experience during the trek. However, I will do my best to my make sure your journey is safe, thrilling and satisfying. But due to the challenging nature of the trip, it is important that participants are in good physical condition. It is also important that you have some previous climbing experience as well.

From the Baranie Sedlo, you will get to enjoy some incredible views of the High Tatras' landscape. Furthermore, in the area, there is also a strong possibility you will get to see some of the diverse wildlife in the area as well. Some animals you may get to see include goat-antelope, the Tatra chamois, and a Eurasian brown bear. There is also the chance you will get to spot a wolf, a fox, and maybe even a lynx!

With so much to see, and the trill of a challenging climb, I know on this trip to the Baranie Sedlo you will have an experience you will never forget. And to be a part of it, all you have to do is send me a request. I look forward to hearing from you.

Would you like to see more of the beautiful High Tatras? If so, you can also join me on a full day hike through the area's 3 mountain lakes, Biele, Trojrohe and Zelene Pleso.

Enjoyed my day with Peter, who went out of his way to make the trip enjoyable and fun. Environment is stunning. If you might be insecure about the via ferrata: no worries. Easy, not very technical. Was happy to have Peter with me though, the track was not very obvious for me as we had to climb through the gorge, over fallen trees. Totally safe, just unexpected. Just bring a fair amount of stamina and you’ll love this track

Peter was brilliant. We trekked in snow and he ensured that we were safe through all the technical sections. Especially considering we were trekking with my teenager. He secured us with ropes, had brought crampons. We changed our itinerary due to bad weather. He has us trekking in Slovak paradise And gave us the experience of Ferrata sections. It was awesome. We were blessed with one clear day and we made spectacular day out of it by hiking green lake in high tatras. All in all, Peter kept us safe, motivated and gave us brilliant hiking experience in high Tatras. He was knowledgeable and friendly. A perfect guide. Thank you for making our Slovakia trip so memorable♥️

Great trek with a highly qualified and friendly guide. The hike was quite challenging and would have taken us longer to reach the summit then anticipated but despite not making it to the top we had a fabulous experience with great scenery and views. Would recommend booking with Peter, a real pro.

Amazing hike in the snow from Hrebienok. Peter was a fantastic guide, super friendly and knowledgeable and took lots of photos/videos for us as memories of the day. Really couldn’t have asked for more and we would recommend everyone visit this beautiful part of the world!

This adventure with Peter was exactly what we wanted. We had no experience hiking in the snow (only summer hiking) so it was great to have guidance (and crampons) when we needed it. Peter told us stories about the area/mountains and was a fantastic photographer! We highly recommend.

I am not a strong mountain hiker, and need many small breakes during ascending. Peter was very patient and controlling the pace very well. We were relatively lucky with the comfortable weather, and saw both wild life and beautiful High Tatras and Rysy Summit. Peter is very experienced guide and mountain rescuer, he cares these mountains dearly. You will be in good hands hiking with him. I had a wonderful day and would do it again!

Peter was very professional, helpful and friendly from the beginning. As my intention was to Winter Hike, Peter came prepared with all the right equipment for me. The Hike was challenging as I had 10kg bag to carry with plenty of steep hikes, I found Peter very patient and helpful. This was one of the greatest experience I have ever had and this was down to the fact Peter made sure I enjoyed my day thoroughly as a Solo Traveller! I highly recommend him to anyone who wants to visit Tatras!
