Slovakian Snow Adventure
Minimum age: 5 years
Slovakia is one of Europe’s most mountainous countries, with lofty summits and deep-cut valleys making up almost a third of its area. The Tatra is perhaps the best-known mountain range but even here the snow-clad peaks are a far cry from the ski ‘factories’ of the Alps. Most visitors will be Slovaks and many local traditions and cultural activities remain at the heart of daily life. After arriving in Krakow, you’ll cross the Polish/Slovakian border near Zakopane, before arriving in the small mountain village of Zuberec/Habovka.
Over the next seven days you and your children will be able to enjoy an exciting mix of winter sports and traditional activities, including sledding, a meal with a Slovak family, an expedition on snowshoes and even swimming in a hot thermal pool. The week climaxes with a dog-sledding trip and - if you’ve any energy left - there’s even the chance to try night skiing!
The snow-clad mountains of the Tatras are the perfect place for an invigorating week of winter activities.
After arriving in Vienna you’ll travel across the Austrian/Slovakian border to reach the small mountain village of Zuberec/Habovka and your comfortable pension. Amongst the snow-covered mountains you’ll enjoy many fun activities. A meal with a Slovak family, an expedition on snowshoes, sledging and swimming in a thermal pool. If you’ve any energy left, you can try night skiing!
Skiing or Snowboarding
Around the village there are three slopes equipped with lifts and downhill pistes. These are the ideal places for either learning to ski or snowboard, or simply developing your skills.
There is no more exciting way to get around the snow than following your own team of dogs across the mountains. You have a chance here to lead your own dog sled, expertly guided by a local guide, and with a supply of hot drinks to keep you warm in the cold.
By staying in locally-owned accommodation and using only local leaders, your tourist spend directly benefits the local economy. The museum of village life at Brestova is made up of over 50 dwellings, barns and workshops dating back as far as the 15th century. A visit here offers a great insight into traditions and customs, whilst sharing a meal with local people is a great way to find out about everyday life in modern Slovakia.
