Small, but gorgeous, Velky Kysel is an amazing place to see and explore.

Just walking through the Slovak Paradise National Park would make for a great experience on its own. However, on this day trip, I would like to guide you on a via ferrata adventure at the Velky Kysel. This recently reopened area is absolutely stunning. It is filled with lovely waterfalls, rivers, brooks, plantlife and gorges. The natural landscape is definitely worth admiring.

Initially exploring by via ferrata can seem intimidating. However, you will be properly secured with harnesses and wires the entire time. Thus ensuring your experience will be as safe as it is fun!

We will be meeting at one of Spisska Nova Ves, Poprad or Čingov. From one of those places, we will hike for approximately 2 hours along Čingov until we reach the via ferrata. The via ferrata path through Velky Kysel will take approximately 2 to 3 hours and will lead you to the top of the gorge. After that, we will begin our descent to Klaštorisko, where we will rest. Finally, to end the trip, we will hike for another 2 hours to Čingov.

Velky Kysel is a remarkable place. Due to its closure following an enormous forest fire 40 years earlier, the area is full of untouched nature. Hence making this trip through the area a unique experience. And exploring it along a via ferrata only adds to the uniqueness of the trip. So send me a request, and visit the Slovak paradise.

Would you like to hike through the High Tatras of Slovakia? Then join me on this day long trip to the top of the Velka Svistovka and down to the Green lake valley.


Meeting point

About the guide

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.
