Throughout the beautiful Slovak Paradise National Park, there is an abundance of amazing things to see and spots to visit. One such spot is the sensational Sucha Bela gorge, will be the focus of this full day hiking tour.

Starting at Spisska Nova Ves, Poprad or Podlesok, we will hike for approximately 2 hours within the Sucha Bela gorge to the Slovak Paradise ridge. This opening stretch of the trip is incredibly scenic. It is also secured by metal ladders, chains along with wooden and metal steps. This definitely gives the hike an adventurous feeling!

The next portion of the trek will follow a gentle path that will lead us to Klaštorisko. Here you will get to admire the ruins of a medieval monastery, while taking a brief rest. From this point you will have some options as to how you would like to conclude the hike. You can trek down deeper into the Sucha Bela gorge, which will take about 40 minutes, to the Hornad river and hike for approximately 2 hours back to Podlesok. Or, you can use a mountain bike for some enjoyable downhill biking. The choice is entirely up to you. The total time of this trip is approximately 5-7 hours, depending on which concluding option you choose.

Though this trek is not very technical, it is important that participants are in good physical condition.

Also, you can enjoy this hike both during the summer and the winter and you will discover different sceneries. In the winter, it is necessary to have some experience in winter hiking and to wear special equipment.

Within the Slovak Paradise National  Park, the Sucha Bela gorge is a fantastic spot to explore. To see it for yourself, all you have to do is send me a request.

About the guide

guide profile img

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.
