Not specified


1 Day

All year




Located in one of the most beautiful valleys in the High Tatras of Slovakia, the Zbojnicka mountain hut (1,960m) is a great place to trek. The views you receive during the trek to, and from the hut are some of the best in the entire Tatras mountain range.

Beginning in either Stary Smokovec (1,000m) or Hrebienok (1,285m), we will make our way to the Reiner mountain hut (1,300m). This hut is the oldest one in the High Tatras, and provides some great views. From there, we will trek to the Velka Studena Dolina, which is a nearly 8 kilometre long valley. The valley is gorgeous and filled with no less than 23 mountain lakes, which you will be able to admire. During this portion of the trek there will be two relatively easy technical sections that involve chains. Finally, we will reach the Zbojnicka hut. Once there, you will get to relax, soak in the views and even enjoy some traditional cabbage soup, filled with steamed dumplings. Afterwards, we will make our way back down.

This trip is fairly easy. Thus making it accessible to most people. However it is important that you are good physical condition, as we will be hiking for approximately 5 to 7 hours.

This trek to the Zbojnicka hut is a great opportunity for anybody who wants to explore the High Tatras. And because it is open all year round, you can decide which season you wish to take this trip. So you can enjoy it under the sun of summer, in the snows of winter or amidst the colours of autumn. To experience it for yourself, just send me a request. 

I also offer a 1 day trek to the Furkotsky peak in the Tatras as well.

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.

A wonderful trip, trek & experience with Explore-Share mainly due to Marcel our guide, the/his service & communications ahead of our overseas travel were second to none. Marcel provided us with confidence during the tough day & his knowledge & background history/stories associated to the area, changing of borders, etc made our day very interesting & rewarding. I would certainly recommend Explore-Share with Marcel’s services to anyone who is looking to summit Mt. Rysy, very professional & reassuring during the trek. Thanks Marcel, your company & guiding was exceptional making our trip so memorable, top man 🏔️👌🏽

Marcel was my guide today in Slovak Paradise National Park and I had a fantastic day. It was a tough walk but well worth it. Marcel is a super friendly guide, speaks good English and is very experienced. If you decide to go hiking in Slovakia, I definitely recommend that you contact Marcel.

Marcel has a professional but friendly approach to hiking. His love of hiking, climbing, Slovakia, history, and of course the mountains is obvious and contagious. I would recommend him to anyone from beginner or advanced outdoor person.

Marcel wasn't able to complete this trip with us, but he provided another certified guide named Veronika who provided an excellent trip! The area was beautiful and the Via Ferrata was a lot of fun. We recommend being prepared for a long (but beautiful) hike before reaching the Via Ferrata and having your own snacks. Luckily Veronika had some delicious food to share with us :)

Hello! I have been thoroughly impressed by the service and assistance that explore-share have provided the past couple years in helping to plan my trip to the High Tatras in Poland. I really appreciated the flexibility that they provided in allowing me to rearrange my trip twice owing to covid. They were responsive and communicative throughout. This trip was part of my Stag weekend celebrations and explore-share connected me with an outstanding guide in the form of Marcel - he was an excellent recommendation and we really enjoyed our guided hike in the High Tatras with him. Marcel was an outstanding professional, placed a high focus on preparing well and staying safe, and was also a great guy! Highly recommend. Many thanks and best wishes - Richard

If you find yourself in Slovakia do not miss an opportunity for a hike with Marcel in Paradise National Park. He is an amazing guide, and my hike with him was a definite highlight of my almost two week vacation in three countries. He is very experienced and knowledgeable, watched over me, and kept us moving at a comfortable pace with opportunities for breaks in between. He also speaks excellent English, and always responded promptly and was in touch frequently before the trip which gave me peace of mind. He also took wonderful pictures of me and surroundings during the hike which are such fun memories to have to look back on. Again, DO NOT MISS an opportunity for a hike in Slovakia with Marcel!!

Super guide, excellent knowledge of area, history and nature. Great with the kids. Gives a lot of confidence with to the point technical explanations on kids (8 and 10yo) level. Can make himself understandable to kids although they do not speak English. Would not hesitate to go again on a trip with him.

Marcel was an excellent guide for our trip. Not only did he speak fluent English (few people do in Slovakia), guided and helped us, but also was a dedicated photographer of the adventure. Highest recommendations.
