The resort is situated in beautiful natural surroundings with plenty of paths and lakes to follow. The paths are well-marked, and there are hiking maps in the apartment. The choice is really extensive, and depending on your physical capability. You can make small hikes of 5-10 km up to 30 km per day. You must follow the rules of the national park, do not underestimate the weather and while some peaks can be reached independently, other higher and more difficult walks are only possible to do with a mountain guide.

The three main mountain resorts in the High Tatras are: Tatranska Lomnica, Stary Smokovec and Strbske Pleso. All have excellent walks starting from them, and are connected with the Tatras mountain train which leaves from the village station, and passing through great scenery.
In the resort of Tatranska Lomnica, during summer months from May onwards there is an exhibition of the High Tatras flora in the Botanical garden. On a site of 3.2 hectares you can see more than 270 species of plants of various biotopes from the Tatras. The exact opening of the exhibition in early May depends on the amount of snow remaining in the garden after winter, although it is usually the second weekend of May. Approximately 70 species of them can be bought in the form of seedlings or seeds.
