Description

A chance to explore the High Tatras of Slovakia is an opportunity definitely worth taking. And on this trip, I would like to guide you for a 1-day snowshoe tour through this magnificent mountain range.

Since this trip is only for one day, there is no strict itinerary. Instead, depending on when we depart, either in the morning or the afternoon, whichever you prefer, we will make our way through one of the area’s many, beautiful trails. And along the trail you will have the opportunity to see the wilderness of the Tatras mountain range. And because this trip takes place during the winter, you will get to see that wilderness draped in snow.

This trip is not difficult at all. The trails are easy to manoeuvre through. Hence making this trip ideal for people of every age and level. It is also great for those people who are looking to just enjoy a few hours of leisurely exploration of a wonderful natural area.

Furthermore, throughout this snowshoe tour you will get to enjoy many memorable views of the peaks of the High Tatras. You will also get to admire the area’s abundance of valleys as well.

Snowshoeing is a great activity, not just for what you will see, but also for the exercise it provides. However, when it comes to place where you can enjoy snowshoeing, they do not get much better than the High Tatras of Slovakia.

Do you want to experience this brief, but exciting 1-day snowshoe tour? Then send me a request. I would be happy to guide you.

If you would like to enjoy a full day hiking tour through the Tatras that is open all year round, I can also lead you on this trek to the Teryho Chata hut.

Enjoyed my day with Peter, who went out of his way to make the trip enjoyable and fun. Environment is stunning. If you might be insecure about the via ferrata: no worries. Easy, not very technical. Was happy to have Peter with me though, the track was not very obvious for me as we had to climb through the gorge, over fallen trees. Totally safe, just unexpected. Just bring a fair amount of stamina and you’ll love this track

Peter was brilliant. We trekked in snow and he ensured that we were safe through all the technical sections. Especially considering we were trekking with my teenager. He secured us with ropes, had brought crampons. We changed our itinerary due to bad weather. He has us trekking in Slovak paradise And gave us the experience of Ferrata sections. It was awesome. We were blessed with one clear day and we made spectacular day out of it by hiking green lake in high tatras. All in all, Peter kept us safe, motivated and gave us brilliant hiking experience in high Tatras. He was knowledgeable and friendly. A perfect guide. Thank you for making our Slovakia trip so memorable♥️

Great trek with a highly qualified and friendly guide. The hike was quite challenging and would have taken us longer to reach the summit then anticipated but despite not making it to the top we had a fabulous experience with great scenery and views. Would recommend booking with Peter, a real pro.

Amazing hike in the snow from Hrebienok. Peter was a fantastic guide, super friendly and knowledgeable and took lots of photos/videos for us as memories of the day. Really couldn’t have asked for more and we would recommend everyone visit this beautiful part of the world!

This adventure with Peter was exactly what we wanted. We had no experience hiking in the snow (only summer hiking) so it was great to have guidance (and crampons) when we needed it. Peter told us stories about the area/mountains and was a fantastic photographer! We highly recommend.

I am not a strong mountain hiker, and need many small breakes during ascending. Peter was very patient and controlling the pace very well. We were relatively lucky with the comfortable weather, and saw both wild life and beautiful High Tatras and Rysy Summit. Peter is very experienced guide and mountain rescuer, he cares these mountains dearly. You will be in good hands hiking with him. I had a wonderful day and would do it again!

Peter was very professional, helpful and friendly from the beginning. As my intention was to Winter Hike, Peter came prepared with all the right equipment for me. The Hike was challenging as I had 10kg bag to carry with plenty of steep hikes, I found Peter very patient and helpful. This was one of the greatest experience I have ever had and this was down to the fact Peter made sure I enjoyed my day thoroughly as a Solo Traveller! I highly recommend him to anyone who wants to visit Tatras!
