Nature Mountains

 Welcome to LIPTOV

Welcome to Liptov, the region renowned for a wealth of natural gems. Liptov is one of the most visited destinations in Slovakia.
Located in the north of Slovakia in Europe, on the territory of three national parks and embraced by beautiful mountains (the High Tatras, the Low Tatras, Chočské vrchy Mountains, Veľká Fatra Mountain Range).


Saddle up, unwind and get active in this magnificent landscape!

Cycling is a great way to get off the beaten track and enjoy all the stunning scenery that Liptov has to offer.

 You can choose from mountain bike or road trails with various levels of easy, medium or technically challenging difficulty.

As you ride throughout countryside, towns and villages on many uncrowded routes your journey will be complimented by spectacular views of mountains, valleys stretching out in front of you, rock massifs, canyons, refreshing mineral and thermal water springs, water dams, lakes, pure streams, cool amazing caves, cultural heritage such as medieval castles, open-air museums, folk architecture, folklore.

 And delicious food, too!

However you can still enjoy peace and silence, far away from hustle and bustle of the city, 

and spot some of the local wildlife such as deer, birds of prey or even a bear.

Keep in mind that in Slovakia cyclists use the right shoulder of the road.

While riding outside a municipality(town, village) cyclists are obliged to wear a properly fastened safety helmet.

During your cycling break in winter you are welcome to enjoy cross-country or down-hill skiing, skialpinism on many snow-white slopes  (Vyšná Boca, Liptovský Ján, Jasná,  Pavčina Lehota,  Závažná Poruba, Žiar, Malinô Brdo) or walking to mountain chalets (Žiarska chata, Kamenná chata, Chata pod Náružím).
