Professional company. Hike was not difficult, suitable for new hikers, although more experienced hikers might want a bigger challenge. But overall great experience. Also company has okay quality gear (tents, walking sticks and similar) for rent at cheap price, you can consider not bringing your own.

Karpaty Travel are Taras, a grizzled mountaineer with a heart of gold and a good sense of humor, and Krystyna, a jovial young interpreter. We went on the tour: Mysteries of Skelevsky Bedesky: Lopata Mountain, and it was covered in snow even in April, and made for a great, technical ascent with gorgeous snowscapes. They organized a private tour for me during the pandemic, and to be fair to them and myself, it was much more expensive than their normal prices, which again, to be fair, are much lower than most tour companies. Couple things to note: 1: I think they understated the difficulty of the hikes a little, only because they are both in such good physical condition. 2: They were EXTREMELY flexible, and went far beyond the listed tour package to ensure I felt I was getting enough for my money. 3: They don't accept paymend by credit card, though this could change in the future. Otherwise I would happily go hiking with them every week, and recommend them to everyone.

Although the travelling time took around 6 hours in total, the hiking experience was good. The views were pretty good. Our tour guide Valentin sent us warm reminders in advance, keeping close contact with us. He also has good english so that we didn’t have any communication problem.

For sure, you need good hiking shoes, because some interceptions of the mostly steep trails were rocky and slightly slippery and: you will master 800 meters of altitude difference. There were breaks during the ascent and descent. These were very useful to calm the pulse. But the hiking tour to Mount Pikuy is not only a challenge for your physical fitness. It is also a great chance to take gorgeous photos of the panorama views from the top of Mount Pikuy and the ridge. And it is quite probable that you meet other hikers. Valentyn, the tour guide, was were attentive and offered delicious Ukrainian sausages and vegetables for lunch at Mount Pikuy. We started at 8 a.m. and were back at 8 p.m. It takes about 2,5 hrs from Lviv to Bilasovytsya, the starting point of the ascent. Be aware of possibly strong winds around Mount Pikuy.

This is a lovely family run agency with professional, knowledgeable guides and fantastic customer service. Even though no other travelers had signed up for the Parashka trip (poor weather), they took me along with a couple guides in training. I learned more in that day about the area and mountains than on any other similar hike Ive done elsewhere in the world. After the hike, they did an impromptu stop for me to see a cave monastery. Their warmth and genuineness made it feel like a family outing The communication before and after the hike (reminding me to check for ticks!) was stellar. I had the pleasure of traveling with owner Teras and his equally well informed and capable English speaking guide Nazar. I am planning on returning to do a multi-day with them in the further reaches of the Carpathians. I would highly recommend staying a day or two more in Lviv to do an excursion with them.
