A great trekking adventure among the most outstanding places of the High Tatras, on the Polish-Slovakian border. Do it under the supervision of Anna, a local UIMLA mountain leader who knows the region better than anyone!
Jun, Jul, Aug, Sep
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.

I was looking for a local guide for a hike I was planning and came across Explore-Share. They seemed to have good reviews and so decided to give them a try. The experience was very positive and completely happy with their service. I will be using them again for next trip.

Thank you explore-share for a wonderful via feratta experience. We have been wanting to learn for a long time but don't have the facilities in Scotland. The guide Mitja was extremely helpful and knowledgeable, answering all my many questions and providing advice. On the day head to take another group but he quickly arranged another guide Borut, who was brilliant. We had a fantastic morning learning via ferrata at Hvadnik in the gorge. It gave us the confidence to later hire our own equipment and go out in Mojstrana. Altogether a five star + experience. Thank you.

Hello! I have been thoroughly impressed by the service and assistance that explore-share have provided the past couple years in helping to plan my trip to the High Tatras in Poland. I really appreciated the flexibility that they provided in allowing me to rearrange my trip twice owing to covid. They were responsive and communicative throughout. This trip was part of my Stag weekend celebrations and explore-share connected me with an outstanding guide in the form of Marcel - he was an excellent recommendation and we really enjoyed our guided hike in the High Tatras with him. Marcel was an outstanding professional, placed a high focus on preparing well and staying safe, and was also a great guy! Highly recommend. Many thanks and best wishes - Richard
