Zochova Chata is located in Modra-Piesok in the winegrowing, protected landscape area of the Little Carpathians.
The hotel can be found in a thick beech forest just 34 km away from Bratislava.
Veľká Homola is considered one of the most popular and most visited places around Little Carpathians. The undemanding walking trail marked with red signs will lead you through beautiful nature. Along the way, you will also find the Comenius University Observatory, which serves as a research institute.
If you want to enjoy an unforgettable view of Červenýkameň castle and beautiful nature, you must visit the Rozhľadňa Kukla. The road leads from Zochova chata along the yellow trail, where you will smoothly go to the blue trail, at the end of which is 12m high tower.
To Čermák and Skalnatá
There is nothing better than enjoying a picnic in the countryside with the magnificent views of the Little Carpathians in the background. Hike to Skalnatá is the right choice. On the road marked with a yellow sign, you pass through Čermák meadow where you can enjoy gazebos and swings. After enjoying this gem, you can continue your journey to the nearest signpost, and following the red signs, you will reach the hill Skalnatá, where you can rest and be amazed by a view with beautiful scenery of the surrounding nature.
For more demanding tourists we recommend hiking to Vysoká – the second highest peak of the Small Carpathians is one of the most beautiful mountains in this area. While enjoying your hike, you will have to overcome lighter but also some more challenging parts that will check your fitness skills. You can choose from two routes – a circuit where you return to the same place, or a way that will lead you to the opposite side of the rocky hills. The first route is a little bit above 14km, and it takes around 4hours.
Ironic is that even if the first option may look longer overall, it is shorter than the second option. This route leads to a village called Kuchyňa, and although it is shorter, it is more difficult for fitness. A circuit at which you turn under Vysoká and use the unmarked route to return is approximately by hour longer, but on the other hand, you will avoid one decent uphill.
Zámčisko is a picturesque place above Modra near Harmónia. In addition to the view of Modra, Pezinok, and Danubian Hills, it also has a historical and archaeological value. You can get to Zámčisko from Harmonia by taking the blue tourist marked paths or from Mordra following the blue signs and later the yellow ones. If you decide to start from Zochova chata, you need to follow the red signs and then change to the blue marked tourist signs.
Small Carpathian challenge
Accept the sporting challenge and sweep through the ridge of the Little Carpathians all way to Záhorie. The route runs almost the entire length along the paved road. The only exception is a short section leading to the Čermak meadow. The circuit starts and ends in Modra. The route has a total of 39 km and is suitable for trekking bikes.
