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.

The seasonal closure of selected hiking trails in the High Tatras lasts from November 1 to June 14. At this time, nature and animals enjoy their winter rest. Above all, higher paths, saddles and shields are closed. However, all trails leading to the alpine huts are open year-round, with the exception of Chata pod Rysmi.

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.

How to find bearings when hiking in winter? In areas without trees, trail marking is available not only on stones but also on poles.

The Mountain Rescue Service guarantees safety of tourists in the mountains. It is very important to respect the laws of nature and instructions of the Mountain Rescue Service. Before setting out for a trip, we suggest checking the current situation in the mountains.
