This multi-activity, 6-day winter break starts and ends in Bratislava, the capital of Slovakia, and ticks off the most popular winter activities in the Tatra Mountains.
For the most part, you’ll be based in the picturesque village of Tatranska Lomnica, in the shadow of Slovakia´s highest peak, Gerlachovsky Štít (2654m). From there you’ll head out each day to enjoy everything these majestic mountains have to offer.

You’ll go on to explore the authentic village of Zdiar, take a horse and carriage ride, and have a picnic cooked on an open fire. Plus, you’ll go skiing or snowboarding on the longest runs in the Tatras.
