Join Marcel, UIMLA certified mountain leader, in a 5-day hike to discover the beauty of the Polish High Tatras. You will also cross to the Slovak side!
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 in 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 the 5 days, we will see most of the most beautiful valleys in the High Tatras from the Polish side. This trip is for people with experience of hiking and in good health and physical condition.

From the mountain hut we hike up to the Zawrat saddle (2159 m), to the beginning of the Eagles Path. This is the most beautiful and picturesque section of the hiking trip. It’s however very difficult and long. (It’s possible to take a shortcut to the next hut.) Then we descend from the Krzyzne saddle (2144 m) to the hut by the 5 Polish lakes (1670 m), where we sleep.
From the hut to go to the Morskie oko mountain lake (1400 m). Then we go up to the highest Polish peak: Rysy (2599 m). From the summit we descend to the Slovakian hut under the summit of Rysy (2250 m), where we spend the night.
In the final day, we will walk down by two very beautiful valleys: Ťažka valley and Bielovodska valley.
From the hut, we go up to the Vaha saddle (2400 m), then down to Ťažka valley around 2 lakes (Zamrznute pleso and Ťažke pleso) and to Bielovodska valley. The latter is the longest valley on the Slovak High Tatras. We end the walk in Lysa Polana (980 m), at the border between Slovakia and Poland. Finally, transfer in public minibus back to Zakopane
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.

Marcel is a very experienced and knowledgable guide who shared with us a lot of interesting facts of the region. He also took his time to explain a lot of details to us and helped us to take wonderful photos during the hike. Being a 1st timer to hiking, he has exceeded our expectation and is a highly recommended guide to engage.
A truly great guide Marcel Kubinsky, helpful and patient, he was prepared for different situations throughout the climb. Nice interlocutor, we spent the whole time talking about mountains, life at the mountains, mountaineering etc. We are happy about this climb.
Marcel was an awesome guide! The hike was the highlight of my trip to Poland
Absolutely brilliant day! Marcel is a great guide, knowledgeable and very safe as well as being really funny and a genuinely lovely guy. The via ferrata route was really interesting, different to Italy as it follows along the river and waterfalls. Beautiful. Marcel recommended other walks for us to do and how to get there via public transport. He was a real help. He picked us up from our accommodation and provided our equipment.
We had a wonderful trip with Michal. He met with us the evening before to go over the plan for the via Ferrata and answered all our questions. He took some wonderful photos of the trip and was so patient with our children. We felt completely safe the whole time and highly recommend the trip!
The guide Jakub was the best! He is an excellent guide and a great person, always with a smile on his face, even when I was slow ... He told me about the local nature and history. Very smart guide and good person, I felt very safe with him.
I had a wonderful day and hike in the Tatras. I recommend this tour to anyone who would like to practice climbing safely and/or wishes to learn more about the surroundings.
