Description of High Tatras activity holiday in Slovakia

Join a small guided group of like-minded thrill seekers and culture vultures as you explore in Slovakia’s High Tatras Mountains by bike, afloat and on foot.

These mountains showcase Slovakia’s stunning and untouched natural environment and provide an outdoor adventure playground for anyone looking to get active in an absolutely breath taking environment.

This is your opportunity to experience the exhilaration of a downhill descent by mountain bike followed by a cable car ride to the start of an alpine trekking trail with plenty of time in between to catch your breath and refuel at the traditional Slovakian town of Kezmarok.

Swapping saddles for paddles you'll also be invited to take to the water on the river Dunajec, close to the Polish border, as you embark on a white water rafting expedition to Lesnica before boarding your bike again and making the most of the tracks in Pieniny National Park.

Tree top walkways, observation towers and a horse and cart ride help you to observe the untouched natural beauty of Slovak Paradise National Park from every angle whilst a trip to the UNESCO historic centre of Levoca is like stepping back in time to explore Slovakia in the past.

From fascinating cultural excursions to adrenaline-fuelled adventures, this small group tour unveils Slovakia and the High Tatras one enlightening activity at a time.

High Tatras activity holiday in Slovakia

Carbon reduction

Your holiday will help support local people and conservation. We must also reduce CO2. Learn about the CO2 emissions of this holiday and how to reduce them.

Environment

We offer you the opportunity to get to know Slovakia in small groups which is better for the environment as it helps to stop overcrowding.

Where it is practical, we use public transport, such as buses or trams, to get us to our activities. This minimises the impact on the environment and saves travellers money. This money can then be spent in other local places, such as a traditional restaurant, thus benefitting the local economy even more.

Our local leaders are fully versed in the principles of travelling responsibly in order not to do any damage to the local environment, and these values will all be passed on to our travellers.

During the trip, we will stay at the Tatra National Park (TANAP). Their undertaking is to protect the park’s nature, flora and fauna, and by being here, we are helping in this mission. We will also visit Pieniny National Park and Slovak Paradise National Park. By providing income through tourism, this trip contributes to the preservation of valuable forests, which in turn create a home for rare wildlife. We will make sure we adhere to the rules of the park, walk only on trails, and leave wildlife and plants undisturbed.

Community

Our company ethos is to organise tours for small groups and individuals so people can experience adventure responsibly. As a local, family-run business, we have built-up fantastic relationships with communities throughout Slovakia, and can provide the opportunity to connect with, and experience, local customs, culture and way of life first-hand.

During this tour, we will only use local services. Throughout the trip, we will stay in locally-owned accommodation, which supports small Slovakian businesses. Local lunches are taken at traditional ‘Koliba’ restaurants, providing further economic benefit and an insight into local culinary traditions.

We will use local providers to source our equipment for the activities, such as the bikes for the cycle ride. We visit the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Levoca, which contributes to its preservation and provides local people with an income through tourism.

On the treks, we will also ensure we stop at mountain huts. This provides income to local people who are conserving a tradition and providing refuge in the mountains.
