Mountain Hotel Smrekovica

Tourist trail

Route: Podsuchá – Horský hotel Smrekovica (1 339 m n. m.)

Mountain Hotel Smrekovica is the most significant stop on a tourist trail leading from the Liptov (region) part of the Great Fatra ridge. It is situated between the observation peaks Skalná Alpa and Malá Smrekovica. The cottage can be reached from several routes. The most used is an asphalt road through Vyšné Matejkovo (along the blue trail) from the site Podsuchá, which lies on the main road Donovaly-Ružomberok. The route is suitable for both pedestrians and cyclists and it is also suitable for cars.

Smrekovica, however, is of great importance for tourists passing through the ridge of the Great Fatra, mainly because of its strategic location. They will find a great shelter here to recharge energy so important to conquer the Great Fatra ridge.

Parking is free of charge. There is also public transport running to the location. The stop is found directly in Podsuchá, near the Bodega roadhouse.

Beverages and food are available at the beginning of the trail in Podsuchá and then in the Mountain Hotel Smrekovica cottage.
