“After researching several winter mountaineering courses, Tatra Climbing School came top of my list due to the depth and content of their program. From my initial enquiry, all communication was prompt, professional and helpful. The Tatras are an amazing location; the course itself is a game-changer. If you want to move beyond walking in the hills to the realm of mountaineering, this course is for you. Marcin and his staff explain and demonstrate key concepts and skills in a clear, concise and practical manner. I’ll be returning for the advanced course in the future.”
“I had an excellent time in the Tatras, winter climbing and the whole course was run really professionally. Booking with Tatra Climbing School was easy and they were always available to provide advice on our preparation. It was a great price and our instructor had real professionalism, skill and enthusiasm when it came to safety on the mountain. Brilliant course, the Tatras are stunning and the perfect introduction to alpine mountaineering. The food was superb and plenty – really important when trekking 15,000 steps a day! Really funny guys too!”
”I did the winter mountaineering course with Tatra Climbing School. I had a lot of fun with guides while learning, and my confidence with climbing gear and winter conditions has grown a lot. When you’re not climbing, you can enjoy the great food from the hut cook and have a beer with your climbing companions. The Tatra Mountains are mesmerizing and fun.”
“Thought you’re course was extremely professional, great fun and scenery spectacular. You guys were great as instructors and see both of you love what you do. Value of the course is excellent compared to Scotland and Chamonix. I think you guys are extremely good, I would be prepared to recommend. Cheers”
”I had an excellent time in the Tatra Mountains, the course is a very good introduction into winter mountaineering and set in a beautiful mountain range. Thank you!”
“I went on a winter climbing trip in the Polish Tatra with Tatra Climbing School I thought the trip was excellent either for beginners or for someone like myself who needed a refresher and so very good value for money. The instruction provided was very clear. Obviously, there was a language barrier occasionally, but in some ways, I found this useful, as you had to focus and concentrate. I refreshed the things I had forgotten and learned useful new skills and variations. The hut was very good. Excellent food of the kind you need on such a trip! Tatra is a beautiful place, and I will return if I can.”
”Tatra Climbing School is just a great way to go on an educating adventure! I did 4 days of mountaineering course in the Tatra mountains. The guides did a great job teaching and they are really friendly and fun people. I love when it feels like you become friends in a few days, and that’s how it felt on this course. The way everything was done was amazing, and as I am planning to become a climbing instructor myself one day, it was a great inspiration to see how a good course is put together. Thanks for a lifetime experience! Hope to book another course one day.”
“Overall I was very impressed with the course including the organization, accommodation, food, equipment and especially the instructor. I would definitely sign up for another course run by Tatra Climbing School again in the future. I was not expecting such a high standard of food and lodging. The quality of the equipment provided was very high and given that we had avalanche detectors and were trained to use them clearly safety is taken very seriously and this is good to see. Thank you”
“Thanks for a great course! The Tatra Mountains are beautiful and I very much enjoyed the Polish mountain hut hospitality. It was a great opportunity to learn a range of skills from a local expert. Lovely group of people too. I plan to do some further courses to build my confidence, and would definitely consider joining you on future trips at the beginner level – in Poland or elsewhere! I think the trip is good value for what you get out of it. You were also very helpful in the lead-up to the trip and responded quickly to emails.”
“I did the winter mountaineering course in Tatra – the area is beautiful and the accommodation is warm, comfortable, and reasonably priced. It was a great course and Łukasz is a fantastic mountain instructor. In fact, I liked it so much I’m going back for a second time! Airport transfer all worked out great as well. Highly recommended.”
“I really enjoyed the winter climbing course and definitely learned a lot. The organization was superb and the equipment was top quality. The instructors were very friendly and knew how to adapt everything to everyone’s ability. The Tatras Mountains are a beautiful place to climb and the accommodation and food were great. I will definitely consider doing one of your other courses in the near future! Thanks!”
“It was great. While I already had some experience with winter walking, mountaineering and climbing I was always engaged, brushed up on some rusty skills and learnt a lot of new things. The teaching methods are very good, the itinerary is well balanced, and the accommodation was superb. I can’t wait to take another course with Marcin and his team! Thank you so much!”
“My mountaineering course in Tatra was so much better than I could have hoped. I have learnt so much and gained a better understanding of the winter environment. The location is beautiful, the instructors are top quality and everyone was so friendly and helpful. I felt totally safe at all times, I can’t recommend it enough. I will definitely be back, no question about it! Thank you again.”
“Thank you for a wonderful time up in the Tatra mountains. I really enjoyed your company and loved the experience on a whole. I enjoyed getting out with yourself and having the chance to learn mountaineering skills in the beautiful scenery. I would like to thank for a wonderful experience up in the Tatra Mountains and hopefully, we will meet again someday.”
“The Advanced Mountaineering Course is a well-designed program that taught the skills necessary to feel confident about heading out on your own expeditions. Marcin and Lukas were patient and knowledgeable and took the time to demonstrate the skills until I was happy I understood. I’d recommend the course for anyone needing a refresh on their alpine/mountaineering skills or for people looking to step up from their winter (British) hillwalking. The environment is beautiful and challenging and you’ll have a great week. Thanks very much!”
