Holiday at the resort of the High Tatras - Štrbské Pleso counts among unforgettable experiences. Take a cable car to Mt. Solisko and enjoy fresh Italian specialities right on a sunny terrace of the BIVAC RESTAURANT (1 840 m above sea level), which offers panoramic views of the valley, romantic Štrbské pleso (tarn), Mt. Kriváň or the Low Tatras. Keen bikers can rent a mountain bike in Tatry Motion – a sports shop under ski jumps and return it in Tatry Motion of Starý Smokovec or Tatranská Lomnica. Follow the mountain trails and get to Popradské pleso (tarn) easily or take a ride to the mountain hotel Sliezsky dom, from Smokovec to Hrebienok follow the so called Cesta Slobody (Road of Freedom) all the way down to Poprad.
TIP: Test your physical condition at our oxygen track around Štrbské pleso (1 350 m above sea level). The 2.2 km-long track offers six stops made of wood, which were tested by our Olympic medallist Martin Martikán. It is designed for everybody and is unique due to its location among conifers whose essential oils have positive effects on human body. Children can let off their stream too and spend pleasant moments in the MINI TATRALANDIA PARK with a Tatry Motion shop. This fun park offers a ride in mini cars, boats, a climbing wall and a trampoline.
TIP: Discover the secret of Štrbské Pleso! A guide through the Tatra wilderness will take you and your children through various stories. We can help you find a secret chamber and you will learn why the mountain with a chair lift is called Mt. Solisko.
Educational trails offer another alternative how to spend pleasant moments in the Tatras. Follow a trail from Štrbské Pleso through the ridge of Trigan up to Popradské pleso. Fourteen stops will teach you that the forest is not just about trees, but also animals and plants.
SUGGESTED BY US: The surface of Štrbské pleso has a magical atmosphere in the summer. Being the only accessible of all Tatra tarns for boating, it offers great moments spent in small boats with a view of the Tatras. Enjoy an experience that will leave a deep impression behind.
Bring your summer to an end with a great event – Marmots at Pleso, which is the highlight of the season and a farewell party to the summer holidays. Enjoy various competitions, theatre performances and you may even meet a real marmot family.
Boating on Štrbské pleso
The tradition of boating on tarns of Štrbské pleso and Nové Štrbské pleso is more than 130 years old. The boating on Štrbské pleso was restored on 5th July 2008, after 25 years. The tarn was “unlocked” and you can thus admire a beautiful view of Mt. Solisko and enjoy the calm surface of this unique tarn. It was even trying to become one of the seven new wonders of the world.
