Huayhuash Trekking
Huayhuash Trekking Expedition

Discover the wild slopes of the High and West Tatras in a ski mountaineering or ski touring trip, together with Eduard, IFMGA mountain guide.


+1 Day

Jan - Apr, Dec


Leave your traces in the virgin snow of the mountains of the High and West Tatras, in Slovakia!

Ski mountaineering and ski touring is an exciting and easy activity. It allows free and natural gliding motion while traversing and ascending the slopes in a wild mountain environment.

We’ll cross the valleys of the High and West Tatras, and you’ll practice several ways of uphill and downhill rides in different kinds of terrain.

Besides, I will teach you with the basics of avalanche training as well as how to use an ABC avalanche set.

When traversing steep areas, we will also use crampons and an ice ax.

We can go for a 1-day or a multi-day ski touring trip, crossing endless valleys and visiting unique mountain huts. There, you’ll meet friendly people that will provide you with nice accommodation and tasty meals for reasonable prices.

Please, contact me if you want to go skiing in the beautiful Tatra mountains. I will be glad to make this adventurous trip become a life changing experience!

Mountain Guide

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.

What people are saying about this trip



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.
