1 Day

May - Oct




* Reach the summit of Gerlach, Slovakia’s highest peak.

* Enjoy hypnotizing views of the High Tatras.

* Explore this dazzling place with an expert guide.


There is something special, something magical about climbing to the summit of the highest mountain in any country. The feeling you get while standing atop what feels like the entire nation is indescribable. That is why I am happy to offer this opportunity to climb to the summit of Slovakia’s highest mountain, Gerlach (2,655m). Moreover, you can do this incredible climb in just a single day!

Located in the sensational High Tatras Mountains of Slovakia, Gerlach is a tremendous peak. And while, its height might pale in comparison to some of the world’s largest mountains, make no mistake, this is still a mighty peak, full of the same challenges and exquisite views found on any great peak.

Gerlach offers several different ways to its summit. The more popular and easier route is by ascending along the Velika Probe and descending by the Batizan Probe. However, for more experienced climbers there is also the Gipsy’s Ferrata or Martinovka. Thus providing you with a wonderful variety that you can take advantage of based on your skill level.

In order to participate on this trip, you should be in good physical condition. Prior mountaineering experience is advantageous as well.

Climbing to the summit of Gerlach in the Tatras of Slovakia is an experience you will never forget. And it is an experience I would be glad to guide you through. To join me, please send a request.

Would you like to do some multi-pitch rock climbing in the Tatras, as well as other nearby areas? Then come and join me on this trip.

Mountain Guide

I have been rock climbing and mountaineering for over 30 years. I started when I was younger, when I also traveled a lot all over Europe, Scandinavia, Asia, North Africa and North America. I love to climb on rock, snow or ice. I have experience in very diverse locations, from small rock gardens to high mountains in different parts of the world.
I have climbed in the High Tatras, Yosemites, Alps, Dolomites, Caucasus, Alborz/Iran, Cordillera Blanca/Peru and many other areas. I am currently working as a certified-IFMGA mountain guide.

What people are saying about this trip



Very nice climb of Gerlach with guide Robert Vrlak in early November. Convenient arrangement for this 1-day climb with Robert picking up at the local hotel and a short drive to the trailhead. Beautiful scenery and a fairly straightforward route with mostly trekking and scrambling but full winter conditions at higher elevations made this climb extra fun and a little more challenging than expected. Would greatly recommend it!



Great place, pro guiding, nice experience.



Great service, great guides, great trip. worth all the money. Thank you!😀
