Jasna Adventures

Jasna Adventures is a Slovakian based tour operator focusing on mountain holidays geared towards British guests. They have their very own chalet (The Dragon’s Lair) as well as offering a variety of other accommodation types from Hotels to apartments. They operate during the winter ski season and summer season, specialising in road and mountain bike holidays in and around the resort of Jasna.

The Dragon’s Lair opened in December 2017 for the winter season and features a full-time chalet host, lounge, terrace, jacuzzi and sauna, full bar, and set in the beautiful Demänovská Dolina, just below the ski resort of Jasna. The chalet sleeps up to 17 people, and is owned and operated by Jasna Adventures and is exclusively designed as holiday accommodation, setting them apart from other tour operators in the region serving the UK market.

Jasna Adventures is owned and operated by Justin Garrett, who is Australian and Adriana Garrett, who grew up nearby Jasna, coming back to Slovakia after spending 10 years living and working in Asia. They have skied all over the world including France, Switzerland, Japan, Canada and New Zealand. They’ve taken the best of snow and mountain holidays all over the world and combined it into Jasna Adventures. Justin is also a qualified Level 1 Australian Professional Snow Instructor and has been riding around Jasna since 2012.

Justin, who has been visiting and living in the Jasna region since 2012, says: “Jasna is becoming established among British skiers as a real alternative destination to the Alps, but as a summer destination it’s really still a hidden gem. As well as great riding in and around the mountains, there’s plenty of other activities for people who enjoy outdoor adventures.”

Getting there is now easier than ever, with direct flights on WizzAir from London Luton to Poprad Tarty-Airport (2h.20m). And with one of the shortest airport transfers in Europe at just 45mins, Jasna Adventures is a great option for maximizing your time on the mountain.
