Slovakia is a natural location still unknown by most, but offers some of the best places to find different landscapes in a ``small`` distance, like the summit of the Krivan, devoid of vegetation and mountainous surroundings, or the gorges of Slovak Paradise N.P. with wood steps between stone walls, in the river basin and within the forest.
WHAT TO EXPECT & TRAVEL INFO
We will work in two scenarios, two different environments with different types of landscape and elements to work with them.
· In the first, the Slovak Paradise National Park, we will find an environment of canyons and rock walls surrounded by forest, where we will walk through gorges formed by rivers, by handtrails and wooden steps, combining mainly closed environments in the interior of the basins of the rivers and environments of green valleys and natural watchtowers, where we can contemplate the immense forests that populate the mountains in front of us, and where we can photograph the nature combining the shades of the vegetation with the warm colors of the sunsets
· Our second stop will be in the mountain range of the High Tatras, where we will find a very different orography, with the predominance of large mountains where their summits are devoid of all types of plants due to their height and rocky composition. From the peak of the Krivan, we will can observe valleys like Kôprová (place where the bear still lives in freedom), lakes formed in the mountain and walls of rock which give rise to these steep peaks. Between both places we will have traveled and learned all we need to return home with the knowledge and the images of landscapes of the highest level.
