This is a centre-based trip. We spend 7 nights in a cosy pension in the small mountain village of Zuberec (approximately 4hrs drive from Vienna) situated on the western edge of the High Tatra. The accommodation is chalet style, with wooden furniture and en suite rooms, offering simple but clean and comfortable quarters. Breakfast is served in the pension each morning and you'll be able to choose from a selection of mountain restaurants and village cafes for your lunches and dinners. The village centre is about a 15 minute walk away.

This is an active week with time spent outdoors in the mountains. No previous winter sport experience is necessary as instruction will be provided. A number of the activities can be tailored to the abilities and kids' ages in the group.
A moderate level of fitness is required as skiing and snowshoeing are aerobic activities. Warm winter/ski clothing is essential. In the event of some activities not being possible due to weather conditions e.g. lack of snow, we reserve the right to substitute other activities and/or change the location of the trip in order to try and provide those activities. Depending on numbers, on some departures it may also be necessary to change the order of activities, or divide into smaller groups, so that different activities can take place simultaneously. Your leader will co-ordinate this.
Normal group size and age
Normally 4 to 16 plus leader and appropriate local staff. Minimum age 5.
