Responsible tourism: Family winter sports vacation in Slovakia
We aim to minimise the negative impact on the environment within the areas of our operation on all tours and daily trips we run, particularly in national parks and protected areas with rare fauna and flora. Our mission is also, where possible, to use family run hotels, local activity providers, local guides and local transfer companies to support the economy of every region visited.
Following our responsible travel rules, in this trip we have implemented the following:
During your vacation your accommodation will be a walking distance from the slopes to minimise the need to use any kind of local transfers. Should there be the interest to experience skiing in the neighbouring ski resorts, we use the electric mountain tram that connects your ski resort Tatranska Lomnica with ski resorts Smokovec and Strbske Pleso. On this trip we offer a number of nature friendly activities such as cross country skiing, snowshoeing, dog sledding, horse and sleigh ride, and swimming in the famous thermal pools of Water Park Poprad.
Accommodation You will stay in a family run 3 star hotel. Mrs Jarmila, the owner of the hotel will be there to help you with anything you might need during your stay. The hotel offers comfortable accommodation, welcoming restaurant with a wide choice of local dishes. In the hotel you will also find a wellness centre where you can relax after skiing.
Guides One of our local guides will assist you with all of your inquires on your first day. Should you be interested he/she will also help you with your optional activities on days 6 and 7 (extra charge for guiding on those two days applies).
Transfer Company Based on your choice of optional activities on days 6 and 7, some local transfers might be needed. This will be either by the public bus, mountain tram or private transfers. Private transfers are managed by our favourite local transfer company GABRIEL. Gabriel with his brother and dad are keen on taking you anywhere you like safely and fast.
