This action-packed, week-long adventure includes the most popular winter activities in the Tatra Mountains. Based in the picturesque village of Tatranska Lomnica, in the shadow of Slovakia´s highest peak, Gerlachovsky Štít (2654m), you’ll head out each day to enjoy the best the mountains have to offer. During the trip you’ll be accompanied by one of our fantastic Slovakian tour leaders, plus expert activity guides where necessary and there´s a comfortable hotel to return home to each day.
You’ll start the week with guided cross-country skiing in Strbske Pleso, the highest village in Slovakia and a beautiful location to traverse through on your first day in the mountains. You’ll also get the chance to snowshoe through towering white peaks, before taking to the slopes at Tatranksa Lomnica to ski or snowboard the longest runs in the High Tatras.
To experience something extraordinary, try your hand at dog-sledding, where local mushers will introduce you to the huskies and teach you the basics as you glide through the forest.
