Winter hiking

Enjoy a real winter idyll in the High Tatras on skis or without them. There are about 20 km of marked tourist trails in the alpine zone available every winter so that the tourists can enjoy their winter holidays in the Tatras to the fullest.

A snow crèche at Rainer´s chalet, waterfalls of Studený potok (brook), hiking trips along Tatra valleys or walks across a romantic, snow-covered winter country – this is just to illustrate what the winter in the Tatras has to offer.

Lovers of winter hiking will be attracted by tourist trails that lead to 12 alpine chalets open all year round and offer beautiful views of snow-covered Tatra peaks.
