  • 3 days of guided hiking in the High Tatras
  • 3 nights of accommodation in a cabin
  • All breakfasts and dinners
  • Professional, local, English-speaking guide
  • Airport transfers
  • Hiking transfers
  • 1 cable car ticket

Perfect for:
This is the perfect getaway if you’re seeking an active weekend in a mountain range every bit as scenic as the Alps—but less expensive and more personal.

The guide, Martin was excellent, he had spent his childhood walking in the High Tatras and clearly knew the area well. The planned walks were perfect enabling us to visit different areas with different vistas. The accommodation was spacious and the food plentiful.
