Social Hike: Scenic Sandberg. 15 million years ago, the iconic Sandberg near Bratislava formed the coastline of the late tertiary sea. Today, shark teeth, turtle shells and other relics can still be found scattered in its dunes. Appreciating this prehistoric significance (and far-reaching view into the Austrian Marchfeld) we slowly follow our trail up the slopes. Standing tall at 514m, the Devínska Kobyla peak generously rewards us with a jaw-dropping panorama over three (some say even four) countries. Walking downhill through a decommissioned Soviet-era missile base, we soon re-enter pristine forest surroundings in search for the mystical White Rock – and eventually visit the remains of Villa Rustica, an ancient Roman spa presiding over the Veľká lúka plains. Net hiking time will be ~3 hours.

Our hike wraps up with a well-deserved group dinner inside the nearby Bory Mall food court with plenty of Slovak/international delicacies at your own taste and budget – or just bring your own food.

Total time: ~4-5 hours
Language: English

Your host is an outward-thinking individual who lived in three cultures on two continents. Fluent in 7½ languages, he visited more than 40 countries from Nicaragua to North Korea and loves sharing off-beat travel stories. Ask him anything!
