Not specified

4 Days

Feb, Mar, Apr


Description

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!

Did you find this trip interesting? Then please contact me for more information. I would love guiding you in this beautiful region.

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.
