Walking in Tatras
Prosiecke and Kvacianska Valley is one of the longest walk we have done in a day in Europe. 17 kilometers through the forest hidden in the Choch Mountains.
Not only is the path long but enjoyable. Wooden walkways along the river which stream down among the gorges, chains and cables on the walls where to hold and delve into the canyon, a waterfall to cool down and then continue you way climbing metal ladders to reach a meadow where to sit and look around.

In the second half of the route there are several viewpoints and an old restored water mill in a beautiful surrounding that invite you to chill and, why not, to take a short nap. Proper tranquility. The mill can be visited.
As it is a circular route you can start the walk from several points; Prosiek,Velké Borevé, Kvakani . We began the long walk from Prosiek, for no particular reason as we all we knew we had 17 kilometers and almost 7 hours ahead of us.
In all of them; Prosiek , Velké Boreve, Kvakani there is parking from where to start the route. In Prosiek and Kvakani it is a paid parking, but you can always park the van 300 meters before, in the village, and walk 300 meter more. In 17km 300meter more or less don`t change that much. Exhausted after the walk, you can take the van and overnight in any of the parking lots. After 5:00pm there is nobody collecting money.
Lots of water, good shoes and lets walk!
