Prosiek – Prosiecka valley- planina Svorad – Veľké Borové – Borovianka – Oblazy – Kvačianska valley – Kvačany – Prosiecka valley – Prosiek
An undemanding half-day tour through two amazing valleys in the Choč´s Mountains. The tour starts and finishes in the village of Prosiek, which is located north of the Liptovská Mara water reservoir.
The circuit starts at a paid car park at the end of Prosiek and continues through the Prosiecka Valley, whose rocky sections have to be scrambled by means of some equipment. The valley is full of rocky formations connected by steel ladders. While climbing, you will come across the waterfall of Červené Piesky (Red Sands). The trail continues to the karst plane of Svorad, where you will reach the highest point of the trail. This easy tour across an undemanding terrain will lead you to the village of Veľké Borové where you can refresh yourself at the pub near the cemetery. Then go down the gorge of Borovianka and along the blue marked trail until you reach the unique watermills Oblazy. This is a technical monument from the 19th century that volunteers care about. Oblazy is one of the most beautiful and visited monuments in the region of Liptov. The destination is also attractive for families with children because of opportunities offered by the wide meadow, the stream with a flood bank, and the pets too.
The Kvačianska Valley, which you are returning through, is a relatively undemanding section. The marked trail is leading you along a wide road above a gorge. The tour will culminate at an observation platform built on a rocky boulder with stunning views of the valley and the surrounding hills. The village of Kvačany is just a short walk away. If you use bus service, the tour can be finished within five hours at the local bus stop. If you are parking at the car park in the village of Prosiek, you need to take the path beneath the hill to get your car.

There are paid car parks at the beginning of the valleys Prosiecka and Kvačianska. The size of the car parks is sufficient; the car park in Kvačany has an asphalt surface. Bus service is available from Liptovský Mikuláš to Prosiek and Kvačany. The time schedule is available here.
Apart from the basic services (grocery store, pub) available in both villages, there is also a buffet at the car park (the start/finish point of the trail) at the end of the village of Prosiek. Approximately in the middle of the trail there is a village of Veľké Borové where a local pub is located to offer refreshments. In 2006 a local brewery with a restaurant was established in Kvačany. There are a number of facilities to offer accommodation, such as private houses, cottages, log cabins or smaller guest houses in Prosiek, Kvačany or near the village of Veľké Borové.
