The High Tatras (Vysoké Tatry) is the highest range in the Carpathian Mountains ridge, 1500 km long. Indeed, it has about 25 peaks rising over 2500 m. But the main ridge is only 25 km wide and 78 km long, with snowfields at the end of the hot summer. Throughout the area, we find wonderful waterfalls, beautiful mountain lakes, unique flowers and animals, alpine meadows, and pine forests.

In fact, most of the region belongs to the Tatra National Park on the Slovak side and the Tatra National Park on the Polish side.

The best and safest way to visit the highest and nicest places is with a mountain leader. Indeed, I can make the experience more enriching and interesting.

During our 6-day adventure, we will see most of the most beautiful valleys in the High Tatras from the Polish and Slovak sides. This trip is for people with experience of hiking and in good health and physical condition.

Mountain Leader

I'm a UIMLA mountain leader and national tourist guide (for cultural and historical heritage trips).

I was born in Poprad in 1969. From my early childhood, I often looked out my bedroom window into the distance of the picturesque High Tatras, which fascinated me even then. In high school I started going with my friends to a small climbing "expedition" on the surrounding rocks, and later to the High Tatras. Mostly I went with a friend whose father was a member of the Mountain Rescue Service. During my studies at Comenius University in Bratislava, I loved coming back to the mountains.
In 1999 I started actively volunteering paramedic of the Tatra Mountain Rescue Service, and then I was hired there.
Precisely because of my relationship with the mountains I began working as a tourist guide with a focus on mountain areas.
Since 1998 I accompany tourists from around the world to the mountains and surrounding towns.
In 2011 I got certified as mountain leader.
Besides, I have been working as a member of the Council of the Slovak Association of mountain Leaders since it was established in 2011.

What people are saying about this trip



Marcel was the most wonderful mountain leader. He gave me confidence when I was challenged, was great to be around and share his extensive knowledge in relation to Tatras and history.



Very good trip, a mountain range offering a lot of opportunities, big diversity in small distance. Marcel, the guide of this trip was really a good promoter of his region : the high Tatras, very professional with high human values. In one word : great.



Marcel is an excellent guide, teacher and now friend. Our trip was one of the most amazing trips we have experienced in the mountains. The scenery, the trails, the challenge was amazing and we are currently booking our next trip with him. Highly recommend :).
