1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your holiday?

The ladders that went up and up forever. Iím not usually scared of heights but I was holding on to those ladders tightly.

2. What tips would you give other travellers booking this holiday?

This is amazing trip if you are looking for a different kind of hike. Many plankways, ladders, bridges, water and gorgeous mountain views too. Not your typical walk in the woods. The packed lunches for a Hotel U were great and plentiful. All the food/meals at hotel were delicious. The ride to start and from the end were only about 20min from hotel. We were able to text our driver both days for early pick up since we are fast hikers. We went late October so not too crowded and weather was great. If you go during busy time, it will probably be crowded. We still had to wait at many places where path is too narrow to pass. You have to wait for others in opposite direction to get off plankways and ladders before you can get on.

3. Did you feel that your holiday benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?

Yes.

4. Finally, how would you rate your holiday overall?

We loved this trip. The hotel was great, the medieval town with city walls was beautiful, and the hikes were different and challenging. My Garmin said about 11km first day and 13km second day. A perfect weekend getaway.

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your holiday?

Since I was unable to join my friend on the hike the best day was when I rented an ebike MTB and cycled along the trail close to the road at the base of the Tatras from one village to the next.

2. What tips would you give other travellers booking this holiday?

The mini van is a great service to use for transport to and from Krakow - Tatranska Lomnica.

3. Did you feel that your holiday benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?

Local bus used to reach the beginning of the hike, train used at the end to return to the hotel in Tatranska Lomnica.

4. Finally, how would you rate your holiday overall?

I was very pleased with the accommodations that were made for me when I unexpectedly could not do the hiking with the group.
