Hiking & Walking


Slovakia offers many opportunities for hiking, walking, trekking and nordic walking - from demanding alpine tour in the smallest European mountains of High Tatras to a simple walk in the beautiful woods. About 40% or Slovakia is forested.

Choose one of our trip tips and/or hire a qualified guide (we've got the best ones for you) that accompanies individual tourists and groups on mountain tours, to visit places that you would not dare to go alone, or do not know the right way.

If planning for a trip in mountains, make sure you respect the nature and stay safe!

Peaks - the classics 

Every good Slovak hiker knows that his life would not be complete without conquering these peaks:

Krivan, Rysy, Gerlach (Gerlachovsky Peak only with a mountain guide) in High Tatras, in the Low Tatras Dumbier and Chopok, in Little Fatra Rozsutce.
