FRIDAY 19th SEPT 2025 – ONE DAY, TWO CANYONS

Hike Sucha Bela and Prielom Hornadu Gorges (10.5 miles) 

After breakfast you’ll venture into Slovak Paradise for your first taste of the park’s gorges.

The first hike will take you along the bottom of Sucha Bela Gorge, one of the longest and most popular gorges in the park.

You’ll walk through water, climb over fallen trees, ascend ladders, and even pass through a window-like hole in the rock. Along the way you’ll pass waterfalls, rock formations, pools and more.

Emerge from the gorge for lunch at a mountain hut, then continue your hike through Prielom Horndu Gorge.

This hike is famous for its series of ledges and catwalks above the Hornad River.

Return to Levoča in the evening for dinner and a well-earned night of sleep.

700m ascent, 17km distance (10.5 miles), 6 – 7 hours of walking

SATURDAY 20th SEPT 2025 – HIKE FIREPLACE GORGE

Head back into the park to explore Piecky Gorge. The name means “fireplace” and refers to the amazing rock formations in the canyon.

More ladders await you, including some horizontal ones that take you over green and blue pools of water, and others that climb alongside multi-story waterfalls.

In the afternoon you’ll head to a thermal pool for several hours of relaxation before returning to Levoča for your last night.

500m ascent, 13km (8 miles) distance, 6 hours of walking. 

SUNDAY 21st SEPT 2025 – ONE LAST HIKE

After breakfast you’ll pack up and check out of your guesthouse.

Venture into Slovak Paradise National Park one last time for an easier hike to a stunning viewpoint.

You’ll hike through meadows and forests, gently climbing until you arrive at Tomasovsky Vyhlad, a rock shelf with excellent views.

The viewpoint is 200m above the rest of the park. On a clear day you can even see the High Tatras mountains in the distance.

Hike back to the car for your transfer to the airport, arriving around 19:00. Return home with stories and photos to share with your friends.
