Type of Trip
Suchá Belá is the most famous gorge in the Slovak Paradise. There are many walkways, ladders, chains and bridges that make this gorge accessible for a trek. Join me for a day in this fantastic destination!
We can do this trek year-round, of course in very different conditions. If you have a look at the pictures you can see the environment during the winter months. It is one of my favourite periods to traverse this gorge. If you come in the winter, you will need crampons to progress.
The beginning of the tour is in Podstsko, where we enter the gorge after a few meters. The hiking trail runs along the creek during the whole itinerary. In narrow areas, there are wooden walkways and also ladders. You will be able to enjoy the Misau Falls, Cayman Falls and Window Waterfall. During the colder months, they might be frozen! There are some very narrow passages in the itinerary.
After it rains, the creek level is higher, bluffy stretches are on the sidewalk, and the rocks can squeak, so it is necessary to get equipped with good waterproof shoes with vibram soles.
The trek will take in total 4-5 hours, and approximately half of the time we will be hiking uphill. You need to be in good physical shape to join this tour.
Tempted to join me for a fun trekking day at the Suchá Belá Gorge? Then don’t hesitate, request to book this trip and we will set a date! In the Slovak Paradise, I also like to guide via ferrata, you can have a look at the program.

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.
I recommend you get mountain insurance from Slovakia.
