Explore the authentic Goral village of Zdiar, which is located within the stunning surroundings of the High Tatra Mountains on the Polish border. On this trip, visit an outdoor museum in the heart of the village where you’ll learn about how the locals used to live, and experience an unforgettable sleigh ride through the forest, pulled by a pair of beautiful horses. Your finale is an enjoyable local feast on an open fire; food grilled in the traditional Slovakian way. This is an ideal winter adventure for the whole family.

Map & itinerary

Meet your guide at one of our many High Tatras pickup points and transfer to the authentic mountain village of Zdiar, beautifully nestled in the foothills of the Belianske (White) Tatras. Zdiar is a typical Goral village, full of traditional wooden houses and barns. You’ll learn about the local way-of-life, before a horse and sleigh ride in the forest and unforgettable Slovak-style barbecue on an open fire. Meat lovers will grill sausages and we have tasty options for vegetarians too. Adults can warm up with a cup of mulled wine and children will enjoy delicious Slovakian herbal tea, which is made out of flowers picked on the Tatras’ alpine meadows. After the barbecue, you meet your driver and transfer back to your hotel.
