Rock climbing in the Velická Valley, Slovakia

Join an IFMGA mountain guide for a day of rock climbing in Slovakia, in one of the climbing routes of the Velická Valley.

Mountain RangeTatras
Duration1 day
Offer periodMay, Jun, Jul, Aug, Sep, Oct
Type of tripNot specified


I invite you to an exciting rock climbing journey in the Velická Valley, a beautiful natural area at the foot of Mount Gerlach.

If you want to try a different activity in Slovakia, rock climbing is a great option! We’ll go to the Velický Zub, a climbing route located near the mountain hotel Sliezsky dom.

A local shuttle service will take us there. Then, we’ll have a 40 minutes walk to the Velická wall. The entire hike is moderately difficult but offers incredible landscapes and views!

Once there, I will provide you the climbing equipment and assist you on its correct application and attachment to the rope.

There are many climbing routes in this area. We will climb the southern wall up to five pitches of the rope and 200 meters of elevationThis trail is perfectly safe by the bolts that are namely drilled and sealed rivets in the rock. Besides, it is a very smooth ascent as you’ll just be pulling the carbines out of the stations.

When descending, we’ll take the path to the trough beneath the wall that was used for coming up.

Please contact me if you want to come rock climbing in Slovakia! I will be glad to be your guide and help you have a great time in a safe environment.

The local shuttle service needs to be arranged for a surcharge of 10 Euro per person per a roundtrip.



About the guide

guide profile img

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.
