15 Pictures To Make You Fall In Love With Little Fatra

Little Fatra (or Malá Fatra in Slovak) is one of our favorite weekend hiking getaways from Budapest. This barely known mountain range is located in Slovakia, and it consists of several protected areas – like Little Fatra National Park itself.

Though it’s not a very large – neither a very high – mountain range, it offers varied and spectacular natural beauties that tempt us back again and again. We admire its dramatic peaks, lush greenery and scenic ridge trails. And we tell you with pictures why it’s worth visiting.

Malý Rozsutec (1343 m) is one of the prettiest peaks in all Slovakia in our opinion:

Little Fatra’s highest peak is Veľký Kriváň with 1709 metres. And the path from Veľký Kriváň to Malý Kriváň peak is one of the most scenic ridge trails in the park.

The drive through Vrátna Valley is also pretty, and countless nice trails start in the area.
