Where your children won´t be bored
Here are a few tips for trips to make your offspring absolutely delighted:
Climbing park and Dino park
The climbing park and Dino adventure park are situated in Drevenice Terchová resort in the beautiful area of a pine wood. The attractions offer adrenaline experiences in which you can test your skills and courage. To make it even more exciting, you can touch prehistoric reptiles and leave with unforgettable memories of the walk through the park.
We recommend your children to visit farmers´ yards with farm animals and a mini zoo. There are several in the region of the Malá Fatra.
Exploring Terchová region by train
Younger as well older ones will appreciate sitting and relaxing in a small red tourist train and admiring the surrounding country. You can choose from various routes, depending on the time you have and the things you are interested in.
Rambling around Štefanová
The picturesque village of Štefanová is situated in Vrátna Valley, right under Veľký Rozsutec. The village is renowned for its architecture of cottages in the Orava region style. Štefanová, thanks to its position, is an ideal starting point for hiking trips to the main range of the Malá Fatra, and, most importantly, it is just a stone´s throw from the Boboty Hotel.
Touch the sky or To Chleb with a gondola lift
The gondola lift to Chleb is one of the most popular attractions in Vrátna Valley both in the summer and winter. It will take you to the top terminal station at 1494 metres. During the journey you can savour the stunning views of Vrátna Valley and the range of the Malá Fatra. The top terminal station houses Panoráma Restaurant with a terrace offering beautiful views of the surroundings. The more experienced hikers can climb the highest summit of the mountains, Veľký Kriváň (1709 m), which is not so far from the station, or take a undemanding walk to the ´Chata pod Chlebom´ Chalet (approximately 30 min).
We are sure that you will please your children by taking them to the pools and water parks in the surroundings. The pool, sauna and massages at the Boboty Hotel are at your disposal. It is worth paying a visit to the spa town of Rajecké Teplice, or Bešeňová. The Aquarelax water park in Dolný Kubín is also very popular.
Orava forest railway
This historical forest railway is found only 28 km from the Vrátna Chalet and offers a really unrivalled experience to children as well as adults – a ride with a steam train.
Adventurous trips to castles
Castles are popular with children of any age. Both Orava and Strečno Castles offer various attractions and expositions, classic as well as specialized guided tours. The most attractive are evening tours, various cultural and architectural presentations, and interesting events, such as fencing duels and cannon firing.
´Jánošíkove Diery´ Gorge or In the highwaymen´s footsteps
´Jánošíkove Diery´ Gorge is one of the most attractive hiking trails in Vrátna Valley as well as in Slovakia. It is ideal for both less experienced and experienced hikers. The spectacular natural rock formations are interwoven with a fierce stream and are accessible thanks to the iron ladders and chains, which turns the hiking trip into an unforgettable experience. We recommend taking the hiking trail from the Boboty Hotel to Podžiar Saddle and further upwards to ´Horné Diery´ Gorge, finally reaching the saddle right under legendary Rozsutec.
