Badminton reminds us of holiday, summer, sandy beaches, and thus it not only improves the physical condition, but also the good mood. We offer badminton to our hotel guests for free!

As we are a mountain hotel in the ski resort, skiing is the No. 1 sport here. The advantage is not only in the hotel location (only 20 meters from the slopes) but also the excellent location of the resort itself, which will ensure great snow conditions until Easter. The slope is suitable for slightly advanced skiers and is also great for children who can enjoy the children ski school. Experienced skiers can try the modern electronic timekeeping for free during the winter season. Remember that skiing is not only beneficial to the body but also to the soul. The active recreation brings a lot of fun and if you choose to ski with someone close, you build and enrich your relationships through shared memories.

Puchmajer´s pond is a small peat lake located in “Oravská Magura”. It is based in the headwaters of the creek “Hruštínka” at an altitude of 1200 m a.s.l. It occupies an area of 0.10 hectares and is 5-6 m deep. It is a protected area since 1976, and it belongs to the part of the “CHKO Horná Orava” – Zone B, which protects the fen vegetation (fourth level of protection). The forests in this area are only minimally affected by human activities and they represent examples of native ecosystems. The lake has a cultural meaning too. It is associated with several rumors, for example, that a boat suitcase sailed from there, or that a young girl was crying on top of it and died before her wedding and turned into a fairy.

Do you want to know how to get there from the hotel? Read carefully: you will not find any tourist trail or indications to the lake. The unmarked trail begins at the end of “Vasiľovská hoľa” on the left, short after entering the forest. From the top of “Vasiľovská hoľa” you need to follow the blue indication towards “Minčol” until you see a board on a tree saying “C zóna – územie európskeho významu” (C zone – the territory of European importance). Turn left in front of this sign and after a few meters you will reach a 2km path that will lead you to the pond. Good luck!
