Autumn in the Tatras

The ideal hiking season in the Tatras has begun. Don´t miss it! The mountain range is truly picturesque in autumn! Nature is full of colours, sunrays are pleasant and warm, mountain breeze is refreshing. Autumn in the mountains is typical for more stable weather, endless views, uncrowded tourist trails and more peace. This autumn season is tailored mainly for families with small non-school kids, seniors and everybody who wants to enjoy the colourful Tatras.

The tourist season in the High Tatras continues. All trails are opened, even those in alpine terrain, and breathtaking views, the most beautiful ones of the year, are like a special bonus. All age groups can enjoy themselves to the fullest – experienced tourists as well as less demanding ones. In autumn, the Tatras offer tourist trails through valleys, ascents to chalets, trips to beautiful tarns, peaks and two-thousanders, across saddles with heavenly views but also the fascinating world of animals and plants.
