Join me on this fun ice climbing course in the Carpathian mountains.

The High Tatras lie on the border between Poland and Slovakia. Many of its peaks are over 2000 meters. The highest summit is  Gerlachovský štít, at 2655 m.  It is an ideal place for winter activities!

The flora and fauna in the Tatras mountains are protected by the Tatras National Park. The area also combines a wide variety of landscapes: peaks, deep glacier valleys, mountain lakes. You won’t believe your eyes!

During this 3-day program, you’ll learn basic ice climbing skills. Some prior rock climbing experience is definitely helpful. This course is available for first-time ice climbers as well as intermediate climbers.

Find more information about this program in the following itinerary:

– DAY 1: Meeting at the Zamkovského Mountain Inn. Presentation and informative talk. Night at the lodge.

– DAY 2: Firstly, we will start by practicing ice climbing basics such as stance, security and abseiling. Afterwards, and depending on weather conditions, we’ll move our practice to the ice!

– DAY 3: Finally, we’ll go for one last ice climb. You’ll get to enjoy everything the incredible Tatras offers.

So, if you’d like to experience ice climbing, don’t hesitate to get in touch with me! Contact me and we’ll put together a program that meets your expectations.

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.
