HIGH TATRAS winter hiking holiday in Slovakia
The scenery in Central Europe changes rapidly from expansive plains to dense forests and jagged peaks. There is a great diversity of people, culture and architecture throughout. The High Tatras, part of the Carpathian Range, is a group of rugged granite mountains forming the border between Poland and Slovakia. There is a sophisticated network of footpaths in a well-managed national park where we enjoy five daywalks. The stunning Polish city of Krakow contrasts perfectly with the mountains and is a great place to explore on foot in order to soak up the atmosphere. There are a huge number of famous sites that are worth visiting, including the old city, Mariacki Church, central Market Square and the Wawel Castle.
