The winter closure of hiking and educational trails started on November 1. The reason for the annual seasonal closure in Tatra National Park (TANAP) is prevailingly the protection of rare species of fauna and flora and the protection of nature.

Hikers are advised to double-check their planned route. The closure applies mainly to higher altitudes. For example, all mountain chalets will stay open, the only exception being the chalet under the Rysy peak.

Most of the routes will reopen on June 15.
