Hello Discoverers!

 

Let’s visit the biggest tourist attraction of Slovakia! The High Tatras (Vysoké Tatry) are the highest mountains of the Carpathian range which spans across Romania, Ukraine, Slovakia and Poland.

 

There are 26 summits above 2500 meters/8200 ft a.s.l and more than a hundred glacial lakes (called ‘plesa’ in Slovak).

 

Our hiking base will be near the bank of the most famous one – Štrbské pleso.

DIFFICULTY: Demanding

Most hikers will find it challenging. Good health and physical fitness is necessary!

In 3 days, we will hike some 50 km and ascend some 3,000 vertical metres (10,000 ft). On top of that, you will need to maintain a good hiking speed to complete the route in the allocated time. If you usually walk at a steady but slow pace, this trip is too hard for you.

 

ACCOMMODATION

You’ll stay in a 2-star hotel about 100 meters from the Štrbské pleso lake in apartments for 4-6 persons with bathroom and fully fitted kitchens.

Bedding and towels are provided.

 

What to take with you

Sturdy hiking shoes, windproof/waterproof jacket, clothes for 4 days, hat (to protect you from sun and/or wind, sun screen, pyjamas/comfortable clothes for sleeping, toiletries and day pack.

PRICE

4990 CZK

(For Discovery Pass discount apply your code at the checkout)

 

The price includes: Round-trip train ticket from Prague to the High Tatras, all local transport, 3 nights accommodation, guiding by a certified mountain leader, mandatory Travel Agency Insurance against bankruptcy and photos from the trip.

 

Half-board (breakfast and dinner) in a nice local restaurant can be arranged at a reduced price. You will be informed about the offer a few weeks before the trip.

 

Travel health insurance. I strongly advise you to arrange one because your regular health insurance (e.g. EHIC) wouldn’t cover, for example, an emergency helicopter transport. It is extremely unlikely you will need that but better to be safe than sorry! Insure yourself for about 100 Kč and have a peace of mind!
