Summer at Štrbské Pleso

Summer in the Tatra National Park is full of opportunities to relax and have fun. Escape the stress of your everyday life and leave everything to us. The only thing you need to do is decide which attraction or event you want to visit first. Or, go on a hike or for leisurely stroll around the lake.

Seasonal re-opening of hiking trails

Hiking trails are available to visitors from 15 June to 1 November. However, it does not mean you have to forget all about hiking at the time of the winter closure. The trails that are closed from 1 November to 15 June are the ones in higher altitudes. Also the crossings between saddles and peaks are affected. All paths leading to chalets are open all year around, with the exception of Chata pod Rysmi.

Štrbské Pleso is part of the Tatra National Park – TANAP. Visitors have to follow Visitor Code of Conduct.
