Are Tatras worth the trip?

Jump to last reply

I may visit the Tatras mountain area in July, with teenagers who may not be in top condition. The goal is to be in the mountains, not in a valley below them. Is it feasible to fill about 5 to 6 days in the area, using only trains or busses? Are there places where you could take a ski lift/gondola up into the mountains and hike some easy trails back down, and possibly visit some huts along the way. If so, where are they. I understand that Poprad and Stary Smokovec may be good bases to start from, but would like to be in the mountains.

Additionally, are these mountains worthwile or the best option, or woudl we be better off going to Switzerland or Germany or Austria?
