Why don’t you join me in this 7-day trekking adventure through the High Tatras? It is an amazing mountain range lying just on the border between Slovakia and Poland.
During this week I will guide you among the most outstanding spots of The Tatra National Park. This national park protects the areas of the Western and Eastern High Tatras. In addition to that, it has 600 km of hiking trails, of which 16 are perfectly marked. The highest peak in Slovakia is the Gerlachovský štít (2,655 m) and it is right inside this park.
In our way through the High Tatras, you will be able to know the interesting flora and fauna of the region, including many endemic species. During the night, we will have dinner and sleep in comfortable mountain lodges. That way we can rest, recover energies and get ready for each new day.
I can take with me a minimum of 4 people and a maximum of 10. Thus I can guarantee a enjoyable trip for all of us. You should know that we’ll walk around 5-8 hours per day. Therefore, I recommend this trip to those with a good fitness level.
