DETAILS

We seek out entrepreneurial mountain women who can help create and offer wonderful walking holiday experiences to our WalkingWomen Guests. We found Alena who grew up in Propad, Slovakia and spent her childhood exploring the peaks and breathing the wonderful mountain air. She wants to share her passion for the Tatra’s with others and she founded her own company Tatra Escapes to help showcase the area. Partnering with WalkingWomen together we bring you an undiscovered area known as the smallest alpine mountain region in Europe. We stay in Alena’s home town of Poprad which is the gateway to the magnificent High Tatra mountains. It is a historic city with a 13th century Churchs, baroque houses and medieval squares. There  are plenty of things to do  with art galleries, an aqua park, spa’s , cafe’s and restaurants.

Poprad is situated in the north of Slovakia and the mountains are shared with Poland (Slovakia has 75% and Poland 25%) Many believe these mountains to be a hikers paradise with over 350km of hiking and trekking trails.

In summer the snow has melted and we have green wide open spaces. There are lakes and mountains and a great variety of walks. Alena will help you discover this beautiful area.
