Situated on the border between Poland and Slovakia, the magnificent High Tatras are the highest range in the spectacular Carpathian Mountains chain and offer a genuine wilderness landscape for the adventurous walker. This secret side of Europe is home to a stunning alpine landscape combined with excellent trails which link comfortable and scenically located mountain refuges.
