Hiking – The Ginger Monkey has awesome hiking trails which start as soon as you are out the front door.  Full day hikes take you up to the top of the Tatras with unbelievable views of forest, lakes, valleys and the jaw dropping peaks of the Tatras mountain range.


Take a break in one of the mountain huts to refuel on goulash soup and a well deserved beer. But don’t worry; there are hikes to suit everyone, long or short, tough or easy! Its just about getting out to the Great Outdoors! We have maps and all the information you will need for any hike..

Mountain Biking – Hire a bike from our local rental shop and explore the local forest trails and valleys that surround the village.


If you want more thrills the local ski resort offers more adrenaline down hill and cross country trails but this is not for the faint hearted. We can give you maps for great trails that can take you further afield.

Paint ball – The village has its own paintball arena on the edge of the forest, surrounded by great views of the Tatras Mountains. Satisfy your competitive urges by letting loose a couple of hundred rounds of paint pellets on your new found friends but expect to get your fair share back in return. Nothing beats living out you’re A-team dreams and blowing away Col. Decker and the bad guys! And as usual no one gets killed!

Walking the dog – if all these activities sound like too much hard work then just hang out with Wally and he’ll demonstrate hours of his dedicated love of chasing sticks, twigs, balls, and somewhat strangely, rocks! He has become the legendary ‘Wally’, ‘Waldo’, ‘Wally Dogster’ and the No. 1 attraction of the Ginger Monkey Hostel and only when you meet him, you will know why!

Aqua City – equally if you just want to take it easy, spend all day soaking your stresses away in the outdoor thermal pools in Poprad.


Treat yourself to drinks from the pool side bar, book a massage or relax in the aromas saunas. Its seriously relaxing!

We can arrange a sky dive in Spisska Nova Ves from 159 Euros with Compact Sky Diving

We have a couple of rafting options availabe for you, first is a white knuckle ride while the second is more like a gentle stroll in the park on a sunny afternoon where your view is majestic gorge between Slovakia and Poland.

Horse Riding is now available to us in the village. Riding for all levels, you can follow the leader and enjoy the mountains or take your beast and explore on your own all from only 10 euro per hour.
