Slovakia’s snowy hillside provides one of the most picturesque landscapes in Europe. You could always explore it by car, but wouldn’t it be more fun to glide through the hills on snowshoes? With the Adventoura Slovokia Snowshoeing day tour, you can.

 

Adventoura Slovokia offers four different types of tours throughout the day, each catering to varying difficulty levels and experience. Beginners will appreciate the winter wonderland of the Tatra Mountains. The guide will provide you with a walk through the mountains where you’ll discover some of Slovakia’s incredible natural wonders, along with unique wildlife. More advanced adventurers can opt for the trip through the Kvačianska Valley. The valley lies in the western Tatra Mountains, a slightly more treacherous and hilly region.

 

One of the most popular trips goes through the village of Ždiar. This quaint hillside village offers an excellent opportunity to meet and mingle with the locals and learn more about life in remote portions of Slovakia. Since snow continues to fall here into late March/early April, you’re guaranteed to have plenty of powder on the ground. If you’re looking for a real challenge, check out the showshoeing tour through the National Park Slovak Paradise. It’s quite a bit longer than the other tours, but gives you the opportunity to view one of the country’s most beautiful regions up close.

 

Head on over to the Adventoura Slovokia website to check out more information on prices, and maybe even enquire about its super secret snowshoeing location they don’t advertise online.

Americans tend to enjoy a fairly moderate climate, which means your body doesn’t always adapt when you head to places like Africa or South America. So, how do you keep yourself from sweating and stinking up a new city? Try these tips.

Hotel Joule

I arrived in Dallas on a cloudy afternoon and, luckily, traffic was light as I drove my rental car into the city in just less than 30 minutes. The Hotel Joule was built in the 1920s in the Neo-Gothic style and is a city landmark in the heart of the business district.

Under $100: El Raval, Barcelona, Spain

Barcelona’s Ciutat Vella (or “Old City”) is often packed with tourists who wander up and down Las Ramblas spending way too many euros on overpriced paella and sangria. But the border neighborhood of El Raval is just a few steps from the bustle, but worlds away from the exorbitant prices.
