Tatra Winter activities

What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?

Having never trying skiing before, following 2 hours of initial lessons going on the ski lift to the top of a rather daunting blue run and managing to get to the bottom in one piece was a big bonus!

What did you think of your group leader?

Peter the group leader was excellent. He organised every activity and some impromptu ones brilliantly. He also took some pretty good photographs during our week. He took us to some fantastic traditional Slovak restaurants on the nights we didn't eat at the hotel and did a great job of broadening our knowledge of slovakian culture and customs. He also has a number of hidden talents - making and playing traditional shepherds horn-type instruments being one of them. He demonstrated his skills on a couple of occasions during the week.

Do you have any advice for potential travellers?

Don't take too much money with you! This is by far the best value for money trip I have been on. A typical meal out cost about £10!

Is there anything else you would like to add?

If you're considering this trip, go. It is great value for money and even taking into account the challenge the lack of snow presented still was a great week.
