As the symbol of Slovak, mountains are considered spectacular Mt. Kriváň, 2494 meters (8182 ft).

National Park of Tatras is home to mountain goats, eagles, brown bears, lynxes, and wolves. Our guide will have a binocular, so with a little bit of luck, we might spot some animals in the distance. The group size is 4 to 8 people. We want to keep it as a Small Hiking Group.

Our Base Camp for all overnights is in Strbske Pleso – the highest located mountain resort with a mountain lake and breathtaking views. You will stay all overnights in the heart of the mountains.

This tour with Rysy peak and Krivan peak are only possible between 15 June until 1 November (due to the winter closure of the trails).
