Type of Trip
The Haute Route Vysoke Tatry ski tour is a beautiful 3-day traverse. During these touring days we will be far from the classic destination. This means, joyfully, far from the crowd!
We will be going up around 3000 meters in total. Therefore, we will have 3000 meters of glorious descents. The overall length of the traverse is 30 km. An intense and rewarding trip!
The Haute Route traverse lasts for 3 days, sleeping un mountain huts. But I can adapt the program based on the time you have, your ski level and what you are looking for. They key is not to miss the chance to discover this beautiful setting.
We will meet in the High Tatras. The first day includes some exercises with the avalanche transceiver in order to do the traverse in all safety. Then we will progress from valleys so saddles. Besides, on the last day we will do some mountain climbing with our ice axes.
Get in touch with me if you plan to come here and if you are looking for a different ski touring experience. It will be my pleasure to organize it for you and guide you in these beautiful mountains. The High Tatras also has great spots for ice climbing, you can join me for a course here!

About the Guide
IFMGA / UIAGM Mountain guide
I was born in 1969 in Ostrava. When I was a child, my parents and I spent most of our free time and weekends in our cottage in Beskydy in the countryside. I started skiing when I was very young, we went to Moravian and Slovak ski resorts. In 2010 I successfully passed my IFMGA exams and I became an official mountain guide. I’m also a photographer and a graphic designer. I’m guiding my friends and clients mainly in the Tatras Mountains. Please feel free to contact me if you wish to discover this beautiful region, during the summer or the winter. We can go hiking, climbing, mountaineering, skiing...together.
