Trekking in Carpathians

Carpathians give an opportunity to feel at the edge of the world, almost in the wild taiga, despite the fact that in fact you will be only a few hours drive from civilization. If you want to get acquainted with the Carpathians, you can join one of our planning groups (see the schedule below) or order an individual instructor

Carpathians hikes

Great influence on the nature of hikes in the Carpathians has local weather - the sun, wind and rain change each other quickly and at ease. Therefore, for the Carpathian tours, the choice of clothing and footwear is very important. But I can say with certainty that the Carpathians are an ideal place to hide from the summer heat.

It is not difficult to get to the Carpathians. In most cases, the group's meeting takes place in Ivano-Frankivsk - a very beautiful city with ancient architecture. In Ivano-Frankivsk there is a small airport. But most tourists get here on trains from Kyiv and Lviv. Please note that during the holidays it is rather difficult to buy tickets to Ivano-Frankivsk. Therefore, it is better to plan your vacation in advance and buy tickets. Come!

Excursion to Hoverla for 1 day

In summertime (approximately from the middle May to early September) we organize daily walking tours to Hoverla. Yes, to climb the highest mountain in Ukraine is enough for one day. The duration of such an excursion is approximately 9 hours. Of these, 3 hours will take ascent to the mountain, 30 minutes you will spend on the top, 2 hours will go back and the rest of the time will take transfers.

Special skills or special equipment are not needed here - we'll just walk along the path. The group is accompanied by an experienced instructor who will tell and tell everything.

Ascent to Hoverla

  • Next tour:
  • custom made tour is possible

The highest mountain in Ukraine is Hoverla. She is also the most popular. You can complete an ascent to Hoverla in just one day. So many people do. I advise you to give a little more time to get acquainted with the Carpathians. The top (especially as Hoverla), conquered at the end of a long journey, is perceived quite differently. You appreciate it much higher, and you understand much better. And you will perceive yourself not as a holiday-maker on excursions, but as a hero-conqueror of peaks. In this hike except Goverla we will try to conquer Mount Petros (2020 m) - its steep slope will make us sweat a bit.

And then a dash, a march through the valley past the sources of the Black Tise, and we are already in a world of endless stony placers and deaf spruce forests. These wild Gorgans greet us - participants of a difficult and rich trekking through the Carpathians.

If you are lucky with the weather, you are waiting for the stunning panoramas of the snow-covered Montenegrin ridge (visible to Hoverla) and the Romanian Carpathians. And if you are not lucky - then you will feel at your own skin what snowdrifts and snow storms are like. But how nice it will be then to return to the warm stove :)

  • Next tour:
  • custom made tour is possible

Polonina Borzhava is one of the largest ridges in the Carpathians (it is quite long, but not too high).
