Description

Take part in an easy hike in the Choč Mountains, a mountain range in the Carpathian Mountains, and discover the natural wonders of Slovakia.

On this 1-day program, we will take a 10km long hike through the gorge of the Prosiečanka and Kvačianka Rivers and the beautiful natural spots in the Choč Mountains.

Our starting point will be the parking lot in Prosiek and, after 6-8 hours of hiking, we will reach the parking lot at Kvačany. On the way, we will climb a couple of ladders and secured places. On the way back, we will be delighted by an ancient local mill.

Although this hike is easy, keep in mind that we will go through some tricky parts with iron ladders and secured sections. Therefore, it is good to have at least some prior experience hiking in the mountains.

Does this hiking program sound like something for you? Do not hesitate to contact me by sending your request. I will be glad to lead you through the natural beauty of Slovakia.

Also, if you are interested in other hiking trips here in Slovakia, take a look at this half-day trip to the chalet at Green Lake in Slovakia’s High Tatras National Park.

About the guide

My name is Jakub Tomaškovič and I live in picturesque village in the hearth of the Belianske Tatras called Ždiar. I studied ecology at the Institute of High Mountain Biology and I am also an UIMLA-certified Mountain Leader, with many secrets to tell you about Slovakia and the Carpathians. We can do hikes on marked trails, saddle passes or several-day tours, like hut to hut trips in Slovakia, but we can also plan some trips abroad.

In the winter we can go hiking with snowshoes or go for a ski mountaineering tour. Slovakia has many treasures to explore, and you can experience them on your own with me. Let's go out and enjoy nature with all its surprises. I am looking forward to meeting you!

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.

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.

Hello! I have been thoroughly impressed by the service and assistance that explore-share have provided the past couple years in helping to plan my trip to the High Tatras in Poland. I really appreciated the flexibility that they provided in allowing me to rearrange my trip twice owing to covid. They were responsive and communicative throughout. This trip was part of my Stag weekend celebrations and explore-share connected me with an outstanding guide in the form of Marcel - he was an excellent recommendation and we really enjoyed our guided hike in the High Tatras with him. Marcel was an outstanding professional, placed a high focus on preparing well and staying safe, and was also a great guy! Highly recommend. Many thanks and best wishes - Richard

Our first time with Explore-Share. An absolutely fantastic experience from start to finish. Extremely good value, very well organised with attention to detail. We travel widely and this has by far been the best of experiences. Well done to all concerned. We are already looking at booking another trip!
