Description of Tatras mountains winter holiday in Slovakia

This week long winter holiday in Slovakia will take travellers, as part of a small guided group, into the realm of the country’s highest mountain range, the High Tatras, which, as part of the Carpathians, stretches across Slovakia to offer an excellent choice of exciting outdoor activities.

Affordable accommodation provides the perfect base from where to get out and try traditional and adventurous winter sports with dog-sledding, cross-country skiing and snowshoeing all included within an eight day itinerary alongside opportunities to ease any aches in an outdoor thermal pool.

As this winter holiday utilises an attractive locally-owned hotel, in the middle of the High Tatras, guests can rest assured that they’ll get an authentic glimpse at life in Slovakia’s mountains with the nearby village of Zdiar providing further evidence of traditional lifestyles and genuine hospitality.

Horse and sleigh journeys over snow covered hillsides and through deep dark forests help to create both a romantic and exciting setting with the chance to taste a typical Slovak style grill over an open fire certain to keep you warm after a good day spent surrounded by snow.

The free day, half way through this winter holiday, gives you every opportunity to rest, relax or explore further afield with optional skiing, snow tubing, ice skating, crampon climbing and walking with a professional mountain guide to a wilderness hut certain to appeal on a variety of levels.

Throughout this small group experience you’ll be in really safe hands with a local team of professionals who know the region like the back of their hand and leave nothing to chance when it comes to the safety and satisfaction of their guests.

Hello. If you'd like to chat about this holiday or need help finding one we're very happy to help. Rosy & team.

Environment

Local Transfers
Where it is practical we aim to offer our customers the option to use public transport such as buses or trains, in order to reach chosen activities instead of using private transfers. Not only is the impact on the environment minimized by using public transport, but travellers can also save a considerable amount of money. This money can then be spent on a nice dinner in a traditional restaurant or be used to buy a souvenir from a local shop. This way, travellers support the local economy even further and will certainly feel welcome and valued in the areas visited.

Group sizes
As a company we offer you the option to get to know Slovakia in small groups. Travelling in small groups minimises the impact on the environment and maximises the experience.

Flying and Trains
Slovakia has good rail connections to the rest of Europe and the UK via Paris. We therefore inform customers about travelling by train as an alternative to flying. Not only does travelling by train have a much smaller negative effect on the environment, travelling by train is often an added value to each tour and becomes a part of the holiday itself. Travellers get to see the country and avoid overcrowded departure and arrival airport halls and hassle at check in desks and around luggage collections.

Community

Folklore and traditions:
On this holiday you will visit the very unique outdoor museum of the Orava region consisting of over 50 dwellings. Here you will find traditional log houses, barns, school, workshops, water mill and even a fascinating wooden church with original organ dating back to the late 14th century where local people still have their weddings to this very day (amazing). This church is a real jewel of this village.
Our local guide Richard that lives and works full time in the museum will tell you many interesting stories during your visit. The entrance fee to the museum is included in your holiday and by visiting this unique jewel of Slovakia you are directly helping the museum to preserve this heritage for future generations.

Local restaurants:
During your holiday we also introduce you traditional local restaurants that we call KOLIBA in general. Those wooden family run restaurants offer delicious local specialities, homemade cheese and some of them even homemade beer. This you will be able to experience during one of your memorable walks through Kvacianska valley.

Accommodation:
We believe that accommodation makes an important part of every holiday. You will be staying in locally owned accommodation. The staff consists of the family members and the locals from the village that will make you feel welcome each day.

Driver Laco:
Our local driver Laco will safely take you to your activities every day. Laco together with his wife Katarina also runs a small patisserie shop so should you feel like having something sweet please ask you guide for directions.

Local guides:
On this holiday you will be accompanied by our local guides Peter and Fero from Zuberec and possibly Magdalena from Bratislava that has fallen in love with the Slovak mountains and is now moving from the capital to the rural countryside. All of them are very passionate about Slovakia and will be there to show you the very best of the Western Tatras and the Orava region as a fascinating destination for winter holiday.

Dear friends,
I am inviting you to Slovakia and to experience the very best that this region has to offer in particular. Should you require any more information please do not hesitate to ask. We are here for you.

Your Slovak friend, Petr Ivanek.
