Experience the rich and varied wildlife of the High Tatras National Park
This wildlife trek explores two regions of the High Tatras National Park in Slovakia, home to numerous species of birds and mammals including, of course, the European Brown Bear. The park was originally created in 1948 and today covers over 700 square kilometres, much of which is covered in forest.
The best way to explore is on foot, and we make the most of our time here with well located accommodation, as close as possible to the best trails to follow. In the company of our guide and a local park ranger, we spend two full days walking the trails in and around the soaring peaks, immersing ourselves in this rich natural environment.
Sightings can never be guaranteed but with expert knowledge and some endeavour we will certainly be putting the odds in our favour.
What makes this trip responsible?
We have established a long term partnership with our local operator who is committed to boosting rural economies through tourism. All guides are local and trained in responsible tourism practices with regards to preserving the local environment. On this trip, we are making use of services offered by the National Park. The fees paid for these services contribute to the running of the National Park itself, as well as helping to fund the various bear projects and initiatives they run.
