Lúčanská Malá Fatra
Four women chose to climb one of the lesser-known ridges that leads from Strečno to Fačkovské sedlo. They completed the route in two days, sleeping in the cozy Grandhotel Partizán, which burned down two years ago, so take a tent or a tent with you. A good place to spend the night in the middle of the route is the saddle below Hnilicka Kýčera.

Pavel Forgáč crossed the ridge of the White Carpathians, which started in Púchov, on the route are the Vršatské bradla, the Vršatec castle, the excavations in the vicinity of Hrozenkov and the peak of Veľká Javorina. It is a substantial hike, the author climbed 4,000 meters in two days.
Tomáš Kulla crossed the ridge of Veľká Fatra from Ľubochne through the cottage under Borisov to Turecká. The Turčianska branch of the ridge, where the highway passes, is much less visited than the neighboring Liptov branch, but just as interesting. Worth mentioning is the peak of Kopa above the planned Korbeľka tunnel, a night at Chata pod Borišov by the light of kerosene lamps, and the view from Krížná.
The Bukov hills, or Poloniny, are still a mysterious mountain range in the absolute east of Slovakia on the border with Ukraine and Poland. Martin Baniari started the transition in Nova Sedlica, the easternmost village in Slovakia. The very first part of the route takes you through Stužica, our largest forest. The view from Veľká Ravka is attractive, you can sleep in the cozy hut under Čerteža.
Ľubo Mäkký rode the crest of the Javorník Mountains on his bike, admired the mountain meadows and Kysucké solitudes in addition to the views, he also incorporated a local motorbike and a swimming pool in Čadec into the logistics. The entire route is very accessible by mountain bike.
Tip for a bike tour with children
Fačkovské sedlo is most often the starting point for the ascent to Kľak or an intermediate station for long-distance hikers on the Cesta hrdinov SNP. If you have half a day, bring your bikes and want to try something different, there is a 17-kilometer cycle path with an elevation gain of 450 meters. It is an educational cycling route created by the operator of the Fačkov ski lifts. It is also suitable for more fit children.
I think anyone who regularly roams the mountains has a lot of experience with storms. It is something that a tourist simply cannot avoid, and I personally consider it the most dangerous thing in the mountains that can happen to me. I have also experienced something. From an unexpected storm at the top of Krížna to an extremely lightning-active storm on the Krupinská plain. Each of the experiences is a separate story, but no storm has left such an impression on me as the one I experienced in Šumava.
The ridge of the Low Tatras is more popular every year, overnight stays on the ridge must be reserved or a tent
