Join Pavol, IFMGA certified mountain guide, in this 4-day trip to follow the Tatras Haute Route and discover the beautiful sceneries of Slovakia.

Carpathian Mountains

4 Days

Feb - Apr


The High Tatras is a mountain range, part of the Carpathian Mountains chain, running along the border between Slovakia and Poland. In fact, this area has some of the most beautiful landscapes of Slovakia.

The variety of terrains is great, allowing us to enjoy a rewarding tour. Even though the mountains are less high than in the Alps, the sceneries are incredible.

During this 4-day tour, we will go through saddles and ski down some of the most beautiful valleys in the region, some of which can be rather steep. Besides, going from hut to hut will allow us to discover more of the area.

This tour is not apt for beginners but if you have some experience you will enjoy it very much! The adventure is similar to a multi-day tour in the Alps, but in a novel environment. We will go down some amazing slopes!

About the guide

Mountain Guide

I was born in Poprad and I live, work and relax in the High Tatras. I have been climbing in this region for 15 years both in summer and winter.
Since 2001 I am a professional rescuer with a completed Bachelor education in Urgent Medical Care. Furthermore, I work in The Experts Mountain Rescue Service (in High Tatras) as an avalanche specialist.
In 2009, after passing the entrance examination for mountain guiding, I started the roundabout course. In April 2010, I became a mountain guide aspirant in the National Association of Mountain Guides of the Slovak Republic.
In 2011, during the final course in Chamonix - Mont Blanc (France) I successfully completed the course of mountain guide during four days of tests, under the strict supervision of Technical Commission NAHVSR instructors. Since then, I am a mountain guide with the IFMGA / UIAGM international license.
Thanks to this job (and hobby) I am pleased to expand the horizons of my clients and share with them my knowledge and experience as a mountain guide.

What people are saying about Kuna


We spent 2 days with Pavol as he introduced us to ice climbing. Upon meeting him, we were pleased with his professionalism and his impressive experiences climbing around the world. It didn't take long for us to realise his expertise on the mountain, as well as his passion and down to earth attitude. Over 2 days, in 2 different locations, we got learn the basics of ice climbing on some serious ice falls. He gave us advice on techniques and strategies to get us climbing higher and more efficiently. The whole time Pavol made us feel very safe and in control, as daunting as ice climbing may be. In the end we had a great time and learnt a lot, and he left us hungry for more. He definitely showed us this is a sport and passion we can keep following. We hope to climb with Pavol again next time we visit Europe.



Great experience!
