This High Tatras hut to hut guided ski tour will take you to some of the most beautiful mountains in Slovakia.
The High Tatras mountain range are located in the border between Poland and Slovakia. And they are one of the last really wild places in the country. But in winter, when snow covers it all there is also a quietness feeling that is worthwhile to experience.
And I’ll be more than happy to guide you through the best spots of the region. This program is designed for you to choose the amount of days that you want to spend on the mountains. But I recommend a 5-day tour to get a real taste of this winter adventure. And we can also go out for a 10-day journey where you’ll ski all the way to Poland!
This ski mountaineering trip will need us to use rope, crampons and ice axe sometimes. And you should know some alpine techniques to be able to enjoy it safely.
The most amazing feature of this program is that we’ll be staying in different huts every night. And you’ll experience the mountaineering atmosphere every evening, which is remarcable friendly and warm. Plus we’ll taste the local cuisine and beer!
So don’t hesitate and send me a request to book a place in this fun High Tatras hut to hut guided ski tour.

About the Guide
I was born in 1965 in Košice, Slovakia. Most of my life I lived in Spišská Nová Ves, with the High Tatras and Slovak Paradise National Parks nearby. As a teenager I started exploring and loving the mountains. Although my parents didn't share my passion, they approved it. Actually, at the age of 68 my mother decided to climb Gerlach (2655 m) with me as her guide!
I am an IFMGA certified guide. Besides, I am a member of the Adventure Consultants team in New Zealand.
Some of the places where I am used to climbing are the High Tatras, the Alps, the Dolomites, the Rockies, the South American Andes, Himalayas, Pamir and in New Zealand.
My Extremes: The highest peak I reached is Cho Oyu at 8201 m (Himalayas). The hardest rocky route I've taken is The Nose (El Capitan Yosemite), and the best ice route was The Weeping Wall (Rocky Mountains). The best ski touring traverse I've done is the Main ridge of Low Tatras, and my favourite extreme skiing experience was in the Lomnický štít peak through Cmiter.
I currently live in Štôla, under our beloved Tatra mountains, with my wife and children.
