Pope John Paul II was a keen walker

In his younger day, the much loved late Pope John Paul II was a keen hiker and in his University-lecturing days would often take his students walking in the High Tatras and Beskidy mountains.

On this unusual, self-guided trip, you will visit the birthplace of the Pope before following the best sections of the official John Paul II Trail.

The route touches on the historically important sites connected with John Paul II, visits the High Tatras and reaches the highest point in the Beskidy Mountains commanding views into remote parts of Slovakia. The itinerary also includes a night at the top of Turbacz Mountain on this journey of discovery.

The holiday costs from £685 pp (2 sharing) which includes 7 nights’ accommodation, most meals, route notes and maps. Walks Worldwide can also book flights on request.
