Discover the beauty of the Liptov region
The combination of natural attractions, cultural and historical richness, opportunities for sports and active leisure together with opportunities for relaxation and experiences make the Liptov region the largest natural playground in Slovakia. Thanks to the uniqueness of natural attractions and the richness of cultural and historical monuments, Liptov is one of the most attractive areas in Slovakia. Most of its territory is mountainous, rich in forests and natural beauty. The most precious natural values are protected in the Tatra National Park, the Low Tatras National Park and the Great Fatra National Park. The value of Liptov´s nature is confirmed by its high degree of protection. The protection of forests and natural beauties thus gives Liptov a guarantee of a “green” region with pure nature. Hiking and cycling in summer, as well as downhill and cross-country skiing in winter are among the most common magnets for visitors of the Liptov region. If we add the underground wealth in several publicly accessible caves and numerous springs of healing mineral and thermal waters, as well as the Liptovská Mara Reservoir, the natural picture of Liptov is almost perfect. Liptov- a must to experience!
The Jasná Ski Resort
Jasná is the largest ski resort in Slovakia. The dominant feature of the resort is the Chopok peak , there is a panoramic terrace with a restaurant. Jasná is spread over two regions: the northern part in Liptov and the southern part in Horehronie. In recent years, the transport of skiers and snowboarders to the resort has been significantly simplified. From the northern side of Liptovský Mikuláš we recommend using the catchment car park in Lúčky. It is no longer necessary to take the ski bus from there to get to the ski resort, as the cable car runs directly from the car park. Jasná offers 45.6 km of ski slopes and 4.5 km of ski trails connecting individual locations. With sufficiency of natural snow, the resort provides the best conditions for freeriding in Slovakia in 12 freeride zones. Almost all ski slopes are served by express cable cars with sufficient capacity. There are 27 transport facilities in Jasná including 5 gondola lifts, 8 chairlifts and 14 ski-lifts. Of the total number, 11 facilities are suitable for children.
