  1. Thursday Arrival

    We will meet you at Krakow Airport in the afternoon and drive you 2.5 hours away to your guesthouse in the Medieval town of Spišská Nová Ves.

    Check in, unwind, then regroup for dinner and to review the weekend’s plan.

  2. Friday Hike Sucha Bela and Prielom Hornadu Gorges

    After breakfast you’ll venture into Slovak Paradise for your first taste of the park’s gorges.

    The first hike will take you along the bottom of Sucha Bela Gorge, one of the longest and most popular gorges in the park.

    You’ll walk through water, climb over fallen trees, ascend ladders, and even pass through a window-like hole in the rock. Along the way you’ll pass waterfalls, rock formations, pools and more.

    Emerge from the gorge for lunch at a mountain hut, then continue your hike through Prielom Horndu Gorge.

    This hike is famous for its series of ledges and catwalks above the Hornad River.

    Return to Spišská Nová Ves in the evening for dinner and a well-earned night of sleep.

    700m ascent, 17km distance, 6 – 7 hours of walking

  3. Saturday Hike “Fireplace” Gorge

    Head back into the park to explore Piecky Gorge. The name means “fireplace” and refers to the amazing rock formations in the canyon.

    More ladders await you, including some horizontal ones that take you over green and blue pools of water, and others that climb alongside multi-story waterfalls.

    In the afternoon you’ll head to a thermal pool for several hours of relaxation before returning to Spišská Nová Ves for your last night.

    500m ascent, 13km distance, 6 hours of walking

  4. Sunday Viewpoint hike and departure

    After breakfast you’ll pack up and check out of your guesthouse.

    Venture into Slovak Paradise National Park one last time for an easier hike to a stunning viewpoint.

    You’ll hike through meadows and forests, gently climbing until you arrive at Tomasovsky Vyhlad, a rock shelf with excellent views.

    The viewpoint is 200m above the rest of the park. On a clear day you can even see the High Tatras mountains in the distance.

    Hike back to the car for your transfer to the Krakow airport, arriving around 19:30. Return home with stories and photos to share with your friends.

    400m ascent, 11km distance, 4 hours of walking

Renesance Penzion

You’ll stay at Renesance Penzion, a family-run, 3-star guesthouse. The guesthouse is located in a restored Medieval building right in the heart of Spišská Nová Ves. Rooms are ensuite and include wifi, satellite TV, AC and a fridge. The guesthouse has a cafe onsite and serves a fresh breakfast daily.

You will be met Thursday at Kosice airport. The included transfer is for flights arriving by 18:30. Your host will be in touch before the trip to finalise details.

Your tour will end at the Kosice airport on Sunday. You will be dropped off at the airport at 17:30, so schedule your flight home for 19:00 or later. Your host will be in touch before the trip to finalise details.

Kosice International Airport (KSC) is served by regular, inexpensive flights, including direct flights from London on Wizz Air. You can get any flights that suit you, but make sure they fit the times above so you can take advantage of the included transfers. We will contact you before you leave to check your arrival and departure plans.

Absolutely! Just let us know at booking.

A moderate level of fitness needed to enjoy these hikes. You’ll cover 11 – 17km of uneven terrain in a day, but elevation gains are modest, just 400 – 700m. Because the trails are complex, you’ll be moving at a slow pace.

What’s more important is being comfortable with heights. The ladders, ledges and catwalks are very sturdy and secure, but they’ll take you quite far above the ground. Imagine climbing to the 3rd story of a building on a ladder. If you can do that, you’ll be fine on these hikes!

The basics are:

  • Sturdy, broken-in, waterproof hiking shoes or boots
  • Rainproof jacket and trousers
  • Lightweight, breathable hiking shirts and trousers
  • Warm jacket or sweater
  • Water bottle
  • Small rucksack for carrying personal items
  • Swimsuit and towel
  • Sun protection (hat, sunglasses and sunblock)

Sure can! This trip is meant to be for solo travellers. The whole group will consist of maximum 8 participants.
