Type of Trip
Although a lot smaller than the Alps, the High Tatras offer a wide variety of very interesting ski trips. From demanding ascents to challenging descents, these mountains offer everything you’re looking for. And, as they have their own Haute Route, this tour will also serve as a very good training to prepare for the famous Haute Route in the Alps.
This trip is based on the time you have. I would like to propose a 5-day program that will take you across this beautiful mountain range between Poland and Slovakia. With close to 30 peaks over 2500 meters, it has a truly alpine character that I’m sure you will enjoy.
As you can imagine, the High Tatras Haute Route is quite demanding. It is not very easy to ski in the High Tatras, especially in the couloirs, which can be very narrow. We might use the rope to descent some parts, crampons and ice axe, all alpine technics.
This crossing can be attempted from east to west or vice versa. The crossing towards the east is only suitable for excellent skiers because it involves really challenging descents. Some experience walking on crampons and basic knowledge of avalanche risk assessment is also necessary. In this case, I can take up to 4 skiers.
We will choose from a selection of huts and lodges and use them as a base to explore the area around them. Popradske Pleso (1,494 meters), Sliezsky dom (1,670 meters) and Zbojnícka (1,960 meters) are favorites among local skiers and hikers! All of them are set in beautiful mountain settings and are at the starting point of a multitude of itineraries that we can choose from. You will have to take your pick!
Top reasons to join this trip:
-The atmosphere in the huts during the evening is amazing, very friendly and warm, with good food and beer.
-The wild and quiet environment.
-You can see wild animals, like Chamois.

If you cancel less than 21 days before the first day of the tour, you won’t receive a refund. Take into account, however, that if accommodation, flights or transfers were included in the trip you booked, then a different policy may apply as the guide will be bound by the provider’s cancellation policy.
What happens if the guide cancels the trip because of bad weather/unsuitable conditions?
If bad weather or unsuitable conditions force the guide to cancel the trip, he or she will: a) propose a similar activity at a different place where conditions are better, or b) propose to postpone the activity until a later date, or c) cancel. If you refuse option a), our cancellation policy will apply. Please note, however, that the call to cancel a trip due to bad weather can only be made by the guide (not the client).
What happens if the guide doesn’t show up or cancels for personal reasons?
If the guide cancels for reason of injury or other, you will get a 100% refund on your trip.
