        Outstanding experience, or when dreams come true 😍
        World-class services on regional level. There is nothing similar in the surrounding, totally unique agency. Highly recommended! Thank you Erik for your guidance, hospitality and the chilly mood we had with you. Good luck!

        Best private tourguide
        Private Tour with Erik from Adventoura Slovakia was perfectly organized, we felt immediately like being friends and experienced two unforgettable days in the Tatra Mountains, Spiss valley and Slovak paradise. Thank you - we will definitely come back and see with you more of the beautiful nature in Slovakia.

        My heart lives in the bears!
        The bear watching adventure was an excellent and rewarding experience! Erik’s knowledge and skills taught the group the sleeping, eating, mating and other habits of the Slovakian bears. With a trained mind, we observed bears from approximately 100 meters away. Some bears can be located at a farther distance. The binoculars helped us identify and observe the male, female and cubs. I encourage everyone to participate in this endeavor. The guide will teach you about the bears and their lives. My heart lives with the bears!

        I saw a bear in the wild for the first time.
        A very beautiful day spent in the Tatras. Erik is a guide with lot of experience, you feel safe with him even when you go to watch bears and learn a lot of new things about them. We saw a bear, it was a really big male, and besides him, we saw a herd of deer and alone mountain goat. We were in the stony valley for the first time and it is a really beautiful valley worth to seeing. I recommend trying this excursion. One more time thank you Erik for nice experience.

        Big bear male eating blueberries
        The bearwatching experience with Erik was amazing. Very professional and it definitely exceeded my expectations. During the hike through one of Tatra’s valleys, we saw one large male bear having its breakfast (blueberries). Most importantly, we learned interesting facts about the bears. I was leaving the bearwatching hike with a better understanding of how to behave in the mountains so as not to have an unpleasant meeting with a bear, but also how to behave if I want to observe this majestic animal safely in its kingdom. Thank you, Eric for this experience.

        Bears in wildlife in the Slovak Republic.
        Erik is an excellent guide who showed us the best trails and gave us the chance to spot bears in wildlife. His tour has just been great and will remain as a unique experience in watching wild animals in real nature. Thanks a lot Erik.

        Wonderful experience
        This was a great experience. Robin showed us traces of animals, marks of bears (especially on trees). We enjoyed the hiking, and we could see as much as 4 bears and 2 cubs. Additionally, Robin sent us a short video of the bears we have seen.

        Great moderately difficult hiking tour with experienced guide Erik. We started tour before sunrise and encountered wild animals in their natural environment.

        Amazing adventure! :)
        It was beautiful hike! Our guide Erik is incredible. He was funny, nice and opened to our questions. It isnt only business, It is passion. We saw 8 bears and it was great experience. Erik told me how to find some bear in his natural habitat and I appreciate it. Good luck :)

        Brilliant Bikes. Great Guide. Berry-munching bears.
        Erik was a fantastic guide, speaks fluent English and made an effort to chat with the entire group. We saw a bear early in the morning and watched him eat berries and lounge in the sun. The ebikes we used were very high quality and made the expedition a breeze, suitable for all levels of fitness. I would highly recommend this to anyone looking for a fun morning activity that you won't be soon to forget.

        A Must for nature and wildlife lovers
        What a great and fantastic tour with Erik. We were able to observe 5 bears in their natural environment, including 2 cubs. A female bear less than 100 metres away. Erik introduced us to these fantastic animals in a very sensitive way with lots of information. The wild valley is wonderful. A must for nature lovers. Thank you Erik for this great experience.

        Amazing experience
        What an incredible day! I can’t rate this tour highly enough. Erik is the most incredible tour guide and so knowledgeable. We were sadly in the very few tours not to see a bear, and we were understandably sad but that would have been a cherry on an otherwise incredible adventure. From start to finish the walk was incredible and we learnt so much. Our girls aged 8,10 and 13 loved it and didn’t ask once “are we nearly there yet!” And that is with an 8 hour trek. They loved it. They have just spent the last hour having a competition of who has the most bear facts!

        Paradise Valley
        A full day with Erik and his team in Paradise Valley, experiencing the ravines, ladders and the vistas. We had a group of 23 and the whole event was really enjoyable and very professionally led.

      It was a breath taking experience to see wild bears live: feeling the spirit of freedom and peace in connection with them. Was not my last tour there, more the beginning of a lifelong tour with those beautiful proud beings. Comfortable boots are an advantage :-))

      If you are planning to visit Slovakia and do a day hike or multiple days hike in the High Tatras, there can't be a better agency than Adventoura. Erik, the owner, is not only an expert in mountain hiking but is one of the most genuine persons you'll come across. He is very intuitive, knowledgeable and adjusting. He doesn't treat you like a client but as a family member. I spent a week in the High Tatras with him and did a lot of fun adventure activities like hiking, mountain climbing, white water rafting, cycling, bear-watching, horse carriage-riding and many more. Many of these activities I was trying for the first time, but thanks to Erik, I never felt scared doing any of them. He never gave up on me and encouraged me to complete them. Also, I am a vegetarian yet I never struggled for the vegetarian food. Erik ensured everything was in place.
