Highlights

 
     

    In the Slovak Paradise National Park there is a marvelous via ferrata route. It was closed for 40 years but it is now available again! Let me take you there for a day and discover this preserved route. 

    The Kysel via ferrata reopened recently after 40 years. It was closed due to a fire, and now it is finally apt for people to traverse it again, with nature in good conditions. We will progress using the ladders, chains and bridges, secured with harness and wires. The natural setting is simply beautiful!

    We will meet in Čingov, one of the main centers of the Slovak Paradise, located in the northern part of the Park. The environment in Čingov is extremely pleasant, and you can look for accommodation there. An option to get there is taking a bus from Spisska Nova Ves.

    I particularly like guiding my friends and clients in this via ferrata because:
    – The untouched nature is stunning
    – It has been closed for 40 years!
    – It is located in the beautiful National Park of the Slovak Paradise.

    Want to spend a fun day of via ferrata in the Slovak Paradise? Then please send me a request and let’s start planning! And for a great trek in the Suchá Belá gorge of the National Park, check out this other program!

    About the Guide

     
     

    I'm a UIMLA-certified mountain leader, based in Donly Smokovec in Slovakia. I'll take you to explore the High Tatras and other mountain ranges in Europe.

    Apart from guiding, I work in the local mountain rescue service and I've participated in the most important ski mountaineering races around the world. I've won bronze medals from the World and European Championships, 3rd place at the Pierra Menta race (the biggest skimo racing competition in the world), and 1st place in Whistler's High Range classic.

    What People are Saying about Peter Svätojánsky

     

    Great trek with a highly qualified and friendly guide. The hike was quite challenging and would have taken us longer to reach the summit then anticipated but despite not making it to the top we had a fabulous experience with great scenery and views. Would recommend booking with Peter, a real pro.

    Amazing hike in the snow from Hrebienok. Peter was a fantastic guide, super friendly and knowledgeable and took lots of photos/videos for us as memories of the day. Really couldn’t have asked for more and we would recommend everyone visit this beautiful part of the world!

    This adventure with Peter was exactly what we wanted. We had no experience hiking in the snow (only summer hiking) so it was great to have guidance (and crampons) when we needed it. Peter told us stories about the area/mountains and was a fantastic photographer! We highly recommend.

    We had a lot of fun with Peter, learning about the mountains and Slovak culture. He was a lot of fun!
