Slovakia Travel Guide

We came to Slovakia to hike in the High Tatras, the highest range in the Carpathian Mountains. Though our time in Slovakia was short, we left with the overwhelming feeling that Slovaks are genuinely welcoming and flexible hosts. Everything felt easy, efficient, and uncomplicated. We look forward to returning someday.

Hike in the High Tatras Mountains

The High Tatras (Vysoké Tatry in Slovak, Tatry Wysokie in Polish) are a granite mountain range in the Carpathian Mountains, located in northern Slovakia and southern Poland.

When To Visit: Trails are open from Mid-June until the end of October. We recommend visiting in late June, September, or early October.

How to Get to the High Tatras: From Bratislava, take a train to Poprad-Tatry.

Recommended Tour Operator: TravelSlovakia.SK. They offer guided and self-guided hiking tours in the High Tatras.

  • Gran Canaria.

We‘re so excited to put on our hiking boots once again and hike in the Canaries.

If anyone is looking to escape the cold winter in mainland Europe, consider a trip to the Canary Islands. The hiking season here runs from November until May.

We have a bunch of Tenerife guides on the blog and soon we‘ll have a series on Gran Canaria. 

Have you been to Gran Canaria? If so, what was your favorite trail, beach, restaurant, town?

Can you guess where? 

Hint 1: Scenes from season 1 of the Witcher were filmed there. Anyone else love Yennefer???? 

Hint 2: It’s an island. 

Hint 3: It’s in a 7-island archipelago.

  • Three things I wish someone told us before we stayed at the Aqua Dome Hotel in Tirol, Austria.

1. You can check-in to the hotel as early as 9 am. Though you won’t have access to your room until 3 pm, you will get full access to the Therme. The reception will give you a spa bag with a towel, bathrobe, and flip flops.

2. Swim in the floating basins and pools between 7 am and 9 am, before the public opening. 

3. Enjoy the Spa 3000 on your day of arrival. You won’t have access to it on your day of departure.
