Type of Trip
Slovakia Ice climbing program with a guide it’s a great choice if you want to learn or improve how to practice this exciting activity.
Slovakia has a great mountaineering tradition and the High Tatras mountain range is where most of it comes from. As part of the Tatras Mountain chain, this range is located on the south of Poland and the north of Slovakia, and with 29 peaks over 2500 meters it has the most alpine characteristics of the zone. And we can also go to Slovak Paradise, located a bit south in the Národný National Park
This gives us a wide range of locations which will be suitable for every ice climbing level.
And all levels are welcomed, although for multi pitch climbs you need to have some experience. Plus if you’re looking for a guide I can take 2 guests per day, but if you want to have a course I can stretch up to 4 guests.
I’ve designed this program for you to decide every day where to go, based on your level, weather and ice conditions. But if you have some time and want to learn the basics of this sport I recommend to take it for a minimum of 3 days.
There are a wide diversity of spots to go in this area. I can take you to easy to access ice falls or go out for some distance secret spots where very few go every year.
So send me a request for this ice climbing experience in Slovakia and get ready for an amazing adventure!

What happens if I need to cancel the trip?
If you decide to cancel, you’ll get a 100% refund (minus fees) if the cancellation is notified up to 60 days before the start of the tour, a 75% refund (minus fees) if you cancel between 59 and 30 days before the start of the tour, and a 50% refund if you cancel between 29 and 21 days before the start of the tour. If you cancel less than 21 days before the first day of the tour, you won’t receive a refund. Take into account, however, that if accommodation, flights or transfers were included in the trip you booked, then a different policy may apply as the guide will be bound by the provider’s cancellation policy.
What happens if the guide cancels the trip because of bad weather/unsuitable conditions?
If bad weather or unsuitable conditions force the guide to cancel the trip, he or she will: a) propose a similar activity at a different place where conditions are better, or b) propose to postpone the activity until a later date, or c) cancel. If you refuse option a), our cancellation policy will apply. Please note, however, that the call to cancel a trip due to bad weather can only be made by the guide (not the client).
What happens if the guide doesn’t show up or cancels for personal reasons?
If the guide cancels for reason of injury or other, you will get a 100% refund on your trip.
About the Guide
I was born in 1965 in Košice, Slovakia. Most of my life I lived in Spišská Nová Ves, with the High Tatras and Slovak Paradise National Parks nearby. As a teenager I started exploring and loving the mountains. Although my parents didn't share my passion, they approved it. Actually, at the age of 68 my mother decided to climb Gerlach (2655 m) with me as her guide!
I am an IFMGA certified guide. Besides, I am a member of the Adventure Consultants team in New Zealand.
Some of the places where I am used to climbing are the High Tatras, the Alps, the Dolomites, the Rockies, the South American Andes, Himalayas, Pamir and in New Zealand.
My Extremes: The highest peak I reached is Cho Oyu at 8201 m (Himalayas). The hardest rocky route I've taken is The Nose (El Capitan Yosemite), and the best ice route was The Weeping Wall (Rocky Mountains). The best ski touring traverse I've done is the Main ridge of Low Tatras, and my favourite extreme skiing experience was in the Lomnický štít peak through Cmiter.
I currently live in Štôla, under our beloved Tatra mountains, with my wife and children.
