Hiking in a Paradise
We will leave Prešov (other starting point is also possible) in the morning and we will arrive to a ranch in the Slovak Paradise National Park. You can choose a level of physical intensity/effortfulness of our hiking. The park is home to bear, chamois, fox, lynx and eagles, rare flowers and butterflies, dense pine and deciduous forests, and high, rushing waterfalls. A 300 kilometres long system of trails, footbridges, ladders and chains runs through Slovak Paradise, helping to make the park a favorite among tourists. After we finish our hiking, we will ride a horse in the ranch. We arrive back to Prešov sometimes in the evening.
