All about the Winter Hiking and Snowshoeing.

Come to winter Tatra mountains in Slovakia, to enjoy the winter silence (only the squeaking snow under your feet) and the icy mountain landscapes. Every morning you will set off on a winter walk to explore the High Tatras – the smallest mountain range in the world with an alpine character, but even though still pretty fascinating. You will be walking in the mountains covered with fresh snow, enjoy tasty food and hot herbal tea in the mountain huts and hot thermal springs on one of the evenings.

If there will be sufficient amount of snow, you will also try to walk in the fresh snow with snowshoes on one of the days.

You will be staying in the quite village of Stary Smokovec, which is situated at the foot of the highest mountains of Slovakia. A family-run hotel has its own wellness (3 saunas and massage bath).

What you are going to do?

  • Easy winter walks in the Tatra mountains led by local guide
  • Snowshoeing walk – hopefully, if there will be enough snow
  • Visit of the Thermal water park Vrbov

All these activities are optional. You can choose to stay in the hotel and relax or make the program on your own. You can take skiing lessons or visit one of the towns nearby.

Martin was an excellent guide. I spent 4 days walking in the mountains with him in a group and really enjoyed it. He told us many interesting things about the walks and the places we visited and was very friendly and courteous at all times, as well as being great fun! He also recommend some places to eat and visit which were all excellent! Highly recommended!!!
