Aquaparks, Lakes and Wellness in Liptov
Tips on where to go swimming in Liptov and around Hrabovo. And where is the best wellness? Get inspiration from tips from Apartment House Fatrapark 2 in Hrabovo valley.
Hrabovo - swimming, paddleboard and rope park
The Hrabovo reservoir is located right next to us, only 100 m from Fatrapark 2. It is a smaller reservoir where mountain water flows. This means that it is pleasantly cooling in summer. And in spring, autumn or winter it serves as a cooling lake for "polar bears" ;). There is also a grassy beach by the reservoir where you can sunbathe. And in the summer season there are various attractions for children - such as Aquazorbing (swimming in an inflatable ball on the water), paddleboard rental or Rope Park Tarzania Hrabovo. Within Tarzania Hrabovo you can try the Zipline above the Hrabovo reservoir. There is also a buffet by the water tank where you can have a snack.

Lake Šutovo - swimming in the heart of nature
The flooded Šútovo quarry is a popular recreational locality thanks to its clear turquoise water. It's also a so-called "instagram spot" where you can take nice photos. We recommend visiting Lake Šutovo, especially in the summer season, preferably in the heat. Its location between the hills of northern Slovakia guarantees, that the water here tends to be colder, and therefore during the summer heat it is very refreshing. Swimming in Lake Šutovo is possible on two large beaches, with good access to the water, and on one fenced nudist beach Šutovo. For enthusiasts of hiking, the Šútovo Waterfall is also a popular attraction here, where first a pleasant asphalt road leads and later a stony steeper road. The route there and back is about 9 km and is also suitable for smaller children (but you will not get there with a pram). On the way to Šutovo waterfall you can have a snack at the Waterfall Cottage, or then at the local buffets at the lake. There are also toilets by the lake.

Kalameny thermal spring - natural spa in Liptov
Kalameny thermal spring is located about 1 km from the village Kalameny in the beautiful countryside of Liptov. An asphalt road leads from the village, so arrival is easy even in winter. There is an artificial pond built 20x10 m and in its center is an artificial well with hot water about 33 ° C. The water in the pond is slightly orange. This is because it is slightly mineralized and you can smell a sulfur odor. A fountain with a pressurized jet springs from an artificial borehole, which massages you. In the winter season you can relax here after skiing in Liptov, in the summer season you can also use here the fireplace with seating. Entry to the Kalameny thermal spring is free throughout the year. The road to Kalameny from Ružomberok is less frequented, so we recommend taking it also on a bicycle.
