Ice climbing in Slovakia is a unique and beautiful experience. Join Eduard, IFMGA mountain guide, on a day trip to Slovak Paradise or the High Tatras.
This exciting sport has a very long tradition in Slovak mountains. In fact, there are excellent conditions to climb on frozen waterfalls in different parts of the country. Here are the two places where I can take you for an amazing ice climbing day:
One of my favorite ice climbing spots is Slovak Paradise Natonal Park. Located in the east of the country, you can get there after a 30 minutes drive both from the High Tatras or the city of Poprad. I recommend to visit this place in case of bad weather, like snowing or strong wind.
At Slovak Paradise you’ll find many icefalls of various lengths and all levels of difficulty. Besides, you’ll be surrounded by a stunning landscape of canyons and gorges.
Ice climbing in the High Tatras is somehow similar to the one in Slovak Paradise. However, instead of climbing in the canyons we’ll climb in the higher mountains. The icefalls here are much bigger and located mostly below the walls and troughs.
In the High Tatras there’s a large selection and good opportunities for ice climbing. We can climb several icefalls within one day.
At each of these places I can take a group of up to 4 people. While climbing, you will learn the principles and techniques of ice climbing as well as play some games.
Ice climbing in Slovakia is a very unique and beautiful experience that you shouldn’t miss if you are in the country. Please contact me if you are interested!
I’m an IFMGA mountain guide born in west Slovakia, in 1973. Nowadays I live in Poprad, a city 10 km away from the High Tatras, the mountains where I’ve been working for 25 years.
I came to High Tatras when I was student, in the summer of 1991. I started to work as a mountain carrier-sherpa in the chalet Rysy. I was also a professional member of the mountain rescue service.
In 2011, I finished my mountain education in Chamonix and became an international mountain guide. I also worked as a cave rescuer in Slovakia.
During winter, I enjoy ski-mountaineering, freeride, ice climbing and ascending different peaks. On the summer season, I practice mountain climbing, hiking, mountain bike, rock climbing, guiding and a lot of other sports.
Besides traveling with clients, I sometimes go to the mountain alone or with my friends and son.
I offer courses for avalanche education, ski-mountaineering, rock and ice climbing. I also organize special team-building activities for clients and I’m used to working with young people and children.

I had a nice time with the guide , he had to change the place and the date we climbed , because the weather was absolutely not favorable for the climb I originally booked ... I wonder what happens if the trip is canceled because the weather won’t allow it
Eduard Lipták was the best guide that I could possibly have hoped for. He ensured that I had a fantastic - and safe - climb.
Our day with Eduard was eventfull. In the beginning there were few communication problems but Eduard’s son was very nice and his presence helped because his English was better. Eduard is a good guide but I think the combination of ski touring and avalanche training is a bit too much for people who go on tour for the first time. We had a real adventure and we plan to go on tour again with Eduard in the summer. His enthousiasm for the Tatra is contagious.
