Welcome to High Tatras


When planning your trip, keep in mind that the highest trails are closed because of snow from November to mid-June. June and July can be especially rainy; July and August are the warmest (and most crowded) months. Hotel prices and crowds are at their lowest during the shoulder seasons between the hiking and skiing rush (October to November, and April to May).

Snowshoeing in High Tatras: Zdiar to Bachledova Valley

Meet your guide at your chosen pick-up point, and transfer in a comfortable private minibus to Zdiar. Zdiar is an authentic mountain village beautifully nestled in the foothills of the Belianske Tatras. The locals, known as Gorals, speak in their own local dialect and the village overall is rich in folklore and tradition. Zdiar is home to traditional wooden houses and barns, and your guide will tell you a little about this old mountain community before you set off on your snowshoeing adventure. First things first, we each get a pair of snowshoes, and poles for stability. Your guide will show you how to put the snowshoes on, and give you instruction on how to walk in them so you have the best technique. And then we’re off! The Tatra Mountains are an extremely popular place for walking and winter activities, and it’s not hard to see why. Covering 785 sq km (300 sq miles), they form the natural border between Slovakia and Poland and are the highest mountains in the Carpathian range. We’ve picked an area called the Beliankse Tatras, part of the High Tatras, which provide a stunning setting in the easternmost part of the mountains. Starting at the Strednica Ski Centre, you’ll follow the ridge of Spisska Magura. This relatively easy terrain is the perfect setting to try snowshoeing, as it enables you to enjoy the views of snowy white peaks along the way, too. Your walk follows the routes that were used long ago by local smugglers to bring goods from Poland to Slovakia and vice versa. Along the way we enjoy a packed lunch in the fresh air, and our guide will tell us many interesting stories and legends linked to the area. We end our walk in the Bachledova Valley. Here, you will once again meet your driver for the transfer back to your starting village.

Morskie Oko - tour from Krakow

Morskie Oko is the most famous lake in Poland, and it is often said to be also the most beautiful one. It lies in the High Tatras at 1395 meters above the sea level and is surrounded by high mountain peaks reaching over 2000 metres, which creates a breathtaking panorama. Another great advantage of this place is that it is easily accessible. You can reach it by a picturesque 9-kilometer long route, on foot or in a traditional horse-drawn carriage. On the moraine locking the lake from the north there’s a PTTK mountain hostel located at 1405 meters above the sea level. It is one of the oldest and most beautiful of the Tatra mountain shelters and also a perfect starting point for trips to the higher parts of the mountains. It lies by tourist trails leading to Rysy, the highest peak of the Polish Tatras (2499 m), through Dolinka za Mnichem to Wrota Chałubińskiego and to the saddles: Mięguszowiecka Przełęcz pod Chłopkiem and Szpiglasowa Przełęcz. This last route through the Szpiglasowa Przełęcz gives you a chance to visit another stunning place – the Valley of the Five Lakes. This is, however, a high-mountain route and requires good physical shape and stamina.
