This itinerary gives you a great opportunity to actively explore three of the most varied countries in Eastern Europe; the Czech Republic, Slovakia and Poland. The itinerary starts in “Golden” Prague, the city of a hundred towers in the Czech Republic, then moves to the stunning and still very wild and untouched Tatra Mountains in Slovakia, where lynx, wolves, brown bears and eagles still live in their natural environment and end in charming Krakow, Polish former capital.

In just one week, you will experience:

  • Prague – the capital of the Czech Republic.
  • Sleeper train – heading to the Tatra Mountains in Slovakia is a unique adventure.
  • The High Tatra Mountains – Slovakia´s oldest national park and home to an unbelievably rich fauna and flora, including brown bears, lynx and wolves.
  • Outdoor activities – things like walking, rafting and cycling in the wild Carpathians make this trip great fun.
  • Spooky castles and medieval towns – discover Spissky castle, Eastern Europe´s biggest castle, and the town of Levoca.
  • Krakow – the Polish former capital, with the biggest ancient market square in the world.

Map & itinerary

Welcome to Prague, the capital of the Czech Republic.

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

Accommodation
Prague - Hotel Lunik (or similar)

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

Follow in the footsteps of Czech kings to Charles Bridge and walk through the narrow streets, medieval squares, and dark passages. 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 and a fun way to travel to your next country – wild Slovakia.

Meals include
Breakfast

Accommodation
Sleeper train

After an early arrival in Poprad, you’ll transfer to your hotel for breakfast and fuel up 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. Located in the foothills of Lomnicky peak at 2634m., there’ll be time to soak up the views.

From here, you’ll hike along a popular walking trail, exploring mountain huts and cascading waterfalls on a scenic trek that has views over the villages and settlements below. Your walk ends in Smokovec.

Meals included
Breakfast

Accommodation
Smokovec – Villa Siesta (or similar)

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 the site’s interesting stories.

You’ll take a tour of medieval Levoca, a UNESCO World Heritage Site with the highest wooden altar in the world, before cycling to the ancient town of Kezmarok with a superb view of the peaks of the High Tatras.

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

Meals included
Breakfast

Accommodation
Smokovec – Villa Siesta (or similar)

This morning we start with a tram journey through the Tatras’ most famous settlements to Strbske Pleso (1,347m), Slovakia´s highest village and home to a beautiful glacial lake.

The village is one of the most popular destinations in Slovakia as it provides many kilometres of hiking routes and the chance to admire the lake itself. From here, we’ll follow a trail to Skok waterfall. The hiking trail is waymarked and leads you along a road to the peace and tranquillity of the pine-forested Mlynicka Valley.

From here, a stony path squeezes you through a hairpin turns to the foot of the waterfall, which drops 25m from the rocky ledge above. It’s easy to see why these are one of the High Tatras’ top ten attractions – the cascading waters are beautiful as they tumble down the mountain into the pools below.

With a chance to see rare Tatra chamois on rocky peaks around you, this is the perfect spot for our packed lunch. After a well-deserved break, we´ll hike back to Strbske Pleso and return to Smokovec by the mountain tram.

Meals included
Breakfast, packed lunch

Accommodation
Smokovec – Hotel Villa Siesta (or similar)

After breakfast, we’ll drive to the national park of Pieniny, which forms a natural border with Poland. Here we’ll visit one of the most magical sites in Slovakia - Cerveny Klastor (the Red Monastery), which was home to the Cistercian monks. We’ll learn about the most famous monk, Cyprian, the inventor of a hang-glider and author of the oldest pharmacy in Central Europe.

The Pieninsky national park is also 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 surrounded by towering, forested peaks.

After our rafting adventure, it’s time for lunch in a traditional restaurant. Here we’ll meet our driver, who will drive us to our final destination, the ancient town of Krakow and Poland’s former capital.

Meals included
Breakfast

Accommodation

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