September 22, 2016

We’ve just uploaded our latest packages to the website and we are so excited by what Slovakia has to offer our customers! The packages are location in the Tatras mountains, the greatest mountain range in Slovakia. The mountains are split into High Tatras and Low Tatras and we have packages in both! In High Tatras, our ski pass covers the slopes in Tatranská Lomnica, Starý Smokovec and Štrbské Pleso. And in low tatras, our ski pass operates in the Jasna resort. We offer a range of high end accommodation in the resort areas and even have a special hotel for children!


HIGH TATRAS

The High Tatras are (you guessed it!) the highest slopes in Slovakia. With red and blue slopes, this is a great choice for beginner and intermediate skiers. The Tatranska Lomnica resort, located in High Tatras offers the longest trail in Slovakia, at 5.5km long! Starý Smokovec resort is unlike Tatranská Lomnica more about alternative leisure activities, such as snowtubing, sledging on a 2.5 km long sledging track, and funtools – skifox, snowbike, snowcoot. The Štrbské Pleso resort is sought after by fans of quality wide red trails with best views. The best experience at this picturesque location comes on a cableway ride to Solisko at 1,840 m when one can view beautiful peaks of the High Tatras and the whole mountain ridge of the Low Tatras from Kráľova hoľa to Mt. Chopok.  The resort of Štrbské Pleso offers up to 26 kilometers of cross-country tracks and more than 9 kilometers of trails with beginner or medium difficulty. Cross-country skiing and snowparks can also be found in High Tatras for those looking more of an adrenaline rush! Alternatively, you can enjoy snow tubing, sledging and ice skating.

LOW TATRAS - Jasna
Jasna is in the Low Tatras region of Slovakia and has a range of slopes for both beginners and intermediates. The second highest peak and also one of the most visited places in the Low Tatras is Mt. Chopok, the north and south side of which is interconnected with cableways.  JASNÁ Nízke Tatry is currently the biggest ski resort in Slovakia. Skiers have an option to try all types of trails from blue to black, suitable for beginners, families with children, as well as for advanced skiers.

There is also a ski school and free ride snow parks. An added bonus is the fun zone where children can move through obstacles and tunnels on a slope that is only around a blue level. Over half of the slopes benefit from snow-making facilities, removing much of the worry about snowfall before your next ski holiday! Other activities such as night skiing, hiking, and ice skating.
