Description

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.

So contact me now and we will start planning this amazing ski tour to the High Tatras. You will have the time of your life!

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.
