Program Description

Day 1.

On the first day of our Slovakian program we set out on a full day’s journey on our way to conquer the Little Rozsutec mountain crest. Our trail guides us through the scenic Biely (White) creek at first. At times we surmount wooden planks and ladders stretched out over waterfalls of varying sizes as we make our ascent up the canyon’s steep walls.

We soon reach a tiny alpine hut, where we consume the lunch packs from our rucksacks. After lunch we continue on with our journey through woodland country, and finally scale the 1343 meter Little Rozsutec peak after a steep climb over the mountainside. There, our team of weary mountaineers is greeted by a picturesque all-round panorama. After a well deserved rest we make our way back to the starting point over an alternate route, and finally travel back to our lodgings.

Day 2.

The next day we take a trip to the citadel of nearby Strecno. Walking up the tower castle set in a stunning landscape, we feast our eyes on the gorgeous vista of the river Vag winding under our feet and the Little Fatra stretched out in the background. Our tower stroll is followed by lunch in the neighborhood’s famous “Goose restaurant”, whose name is warranted on several counts.

Located in the middle of the woods, a live goose greets the restaurant’s costumers upon entry, and the kitchen is famed for dishes prepared from the aforementioned fowl. On our way home after lunch we stop for a bit of sightseeing in the town center of Selmecbanya. This is one of the most beautiful towns of the Felvidek – the Slovakian highlands –, preserving to this day a genuine medieval atmosphere found in other Slovakian towns only in traces. We leave home after sightseeing, arriving in Hungary in the evening.

Travel time: Travelling there and back home should be added to the program’s duration. With a car or bus this takes half a day each way.

Physical difficulty: the hikes listed in the program can be completed by any healthy individual. Near the peak of Little Rozsutec climbing up and down is assisted by wire cables and chains. For those suffering from extreme fear of heights we offer an alternative route as well.

Equipment: a small backpack for hiking, raincoat, light sweater, comfortable pants, trekking boots (or sports shoes), sunglasses, sunscreen lotion. We recommend at least boots or mid-height sports shoes for trekking.

Some things are really important and some are not. We live to learn the difference.

Participant opinions

Conflicts in teams

It is useful for individuals concerning self-knowledge and useful for the team as it emphasizes that we are different although we can still change.

Situational Leadership

I feel that there is a serious research behind the knowledge therefore it teaches logical things that can be accepted. It was good.
