Traverse the beautiful High Tatras from Prague, ‘the City of a Hundred Spires’, to charming Krakow.

Taking in three of Eastern Europe’s gems – the Czech Republic, Slovakia and Poland – this great-value trip has highlights right from the very start.

Prague is at the top of a lot of travel wish lists, and you’ll see it the family-friendly way; a top-notch guide will show you the historic centre with fun facts to keep the kids entertained.

You’ll travel by sleeper train to your next country, Slovakia – a unique adventure, and an easy and nice way to journey through the mountains as a family.

Slovakia remains relatively undiscovered. Its national parks and mountains make it the perfect playground for a myriad of outdoor activities – cycling, rafting and trekking make this trip great fun.

After discovering Slovakia’s spooky castles and ancient towns, head to Krakow – a beautiful medieval city, steeped in culture.

Accompanied by an expert local guide and staying in comfortable, family-friendly hotels, this is a stimulating and inspiring trip for all the family to kick-back and enjoy.


Map & itinerary

Welcome to Prague, capital of the Czech Republic.

You will be met by your tour leader at the hotel for an introductory briefing. Depending on your arrival time, the rest of the day is free to explore Prague’s attractions.

Prague is a fascinating city, with lots to do. We recommend a couple of extra nights here to make the most of your time. If you want us to find you a well-located, family-friendly hotel, just let us know.

Hotel – Prague, the Czech Republic

Today you’ll enjoy sightseeing in Prague, considered to be one of the prettiest towns in the world. Your local guide will walk you around the historic centre, set to the backdrop of Prague Castle – the largest castle complex in the world.

Follow in the footsteps of Czech kings to Charles Bridge; walk through the narrow streets, medieval squares and dark passages, to the Old Town Square. Here you’ll see the Orloj astronomical clock.

Late evening, you’ll head to the station to catch the sleeper train to Poprad in the heart of the High Tatras.

A sleeper train is a unique experience for the kids, and a fun way to travel to your next country – Slovakia.

Meals included: Breakfast
Sleeper train

After an early arrival in Poprad, you’ll transfer to your hotel for breakfast – fuel for your first walking adventure.

It’s up into the hills with a cable car ride to Skalnate Pleso (1,751m), home to a crystal-clear mountain lake. There’s time to soak up the views, visit the hilltop observatory and may be have coffee and cake on the restaurant terrace!

From here you hike along a popular family trail, exploring mountain huts and cascading waterfalls on a scenic trek that has views over the villages and settlements below. Your walk ends with a funicular cable car ride back to Smokovec.

Meals included: Breakfast
Hotel – Tatranská Lomnica, Slovakia

A short drive takes you to one of the biggest castles in Central-Eastern Europe, 12th Century Spissky Castle. A local guide will walk you through all of the site’s interesting stories, in a way that’ll bring them to life for the kids.

You’ll take a tour of medieval Levoca, a UNESCO World Heritage Site with the highest wooden altar in the world, before your downhill bike ride to the ancient town of Kezmarok.

Riding down an easy trail in the heart of the Levoca Mountains is fun – what could be better than spending family time together, on two-wheels, with beautiful scenery to boot?!

An early evening transfer takes you back to the hotel, for a well-earned dinner (and glass of wine)…

Meals included: Breakfast
Hotel – Tatranská Lomnica, Slovakia

Today is free for you to choose what you’d like to do. There’s a whole raft of activities to choose from; cycling, walking, cable cars, horse-drawn cart rides, or maybe relaxing in outdoor thermal pools.

Meals included: Breakfast
Hotel – Tatranská Lomnica, Slovakia

Pieniny National Park is home to Dunajec Gorge. At 23km it’s one of the longest gorges in Europe. A spectacular way to see it is from the water… So take to your rafts, grab an oar and head along the river surrounding by towering, forested peaks.

After lunch in a traditional restaurant, cycle to the 14th Century Cerveny Klastor Monastery, before a visit to Niedzica Castle, perched on a hill above the Dunajec River.

In the early evening, transfer to Krakow.

Meals included: Breakfast
Hotel – Krakow, Poland

Krakow is a UNESCO World Heritage City, famous for its beautifully preserved Old Town. Explore three kilometres of city walls, 46 spires, countless historical buildings, narrow streets, churches and Europe´s biggest medieval market square.

We’ve included a kiddie-friendly guided tour before a free afternoon to enjoy more of Krakow or visit Wieliczka Salt Mines (optional).

Customers reviews

Sandra and Tim Docter (USA Chicago) June 2019

GENERAL FEEDBACK - YOUR OVERALL EXPERIENCE
Our overall experience was outstanding from start to finish!

WHAT WERE THE HIGHLIGHTS OF YOUR TRIP?
Every city that we visited and every activity that we participated in was truly unique and could be considered a highlight of the trip. Our family is very active and loves the outdoors so our time in the Tatra Mountains stands out as THE highlight.

ACCOMMODATION
Overall the accommodations were excellent with ‘Paula’ being our #1 absolute favorite. The accommodations in Krakow were convenient and the breakfast food was very good. At the same time, the neighborhood was a bit rundown and the staff was a bit unfriendly.

TRANSPORT
Outstanding in every way.

MEALS
Fabulous. We all gained a few pounds last week!

PLEASE RATE YOUR LEADER
A+ Exceptional in every way.

WERE YOU DISAPPOINTED WITH ANY PART OF YOUR TRIP?
Not at all. The trip was magical!

WHAT TIPS WOULD YOU GIVE OTHER TRAVELLERS BOOKING THIS HOLIDAY?
Be in shape and be ready to do a lot of walking!
Be sure to pack a very comfortable pair of walking shoes and a rain poncho.

Carla Glynn (IE) July 2019

WHAT WAS YOUR OVERALL EXPERIENCE?
it was a superb experience.

WHAT WERE THE HIGHLIGHTS OF YOUR TRIP?
Rafting and riverside cycle. Overnight train (children loved that). Mountain hike in the beautiful Tatras. Our mountain village was very pretty and lively. Prague and Krakow were both spectacular.

ACCOMMODATION
All 3 hotels were perfectly located and spotlessly clean.

TRANSPORT
Very efficient with courteous drivers. The air-con could have been more effective on the 2 hour transfer to Krakow.

MEALS
I think we just had breakfasts included? These were all highly satisfactory, especially the breakfast provided by the Krakow hotel.

PLEASE RATE YOUR LEADER
lice in Prague gave us a very thorough tour and was very pleasant and keen that nothing should spoil our day. She was clearly passionately interested in the history and culture of her city.
Linda was absolutely superb,highly efficient, always three steps ahead in terms of organizing everything and with an in-depth knowledge of the mountains. Excellent English and also sociable and fun to be around.

WERE YOU DISAPPOINTED WITH ANY PART OF YOUR TRIP?
No.

WHAT TIPS WOULD YOU GIVE OTHER TRAVELLERS BOOKING THIS HOLIDAY?
The days were very busy and packed with activity so it’s a long day on your feet. Our two girls, aged 7 and 8, are very fit and sporty so they managed it but I think a younger child or a less sporty child would struggle to last the day. However there is always an option to leave the group to take a break, and we did that once or twice.
