Hi Maree.

I am not sure if they do public transport directly to Vlkolinec - certainly not train or boat, but I would guess that they might do some public transport to some of the surrounding villages located in the valley - (Vlkolinec is on the hill). We've seen a lot of tourists hiking from the valley up to the hill, so I believe there must be some kind of local buses going that direction but maybe not entirely up to the hill. I recommend you to write an email to the info centre of Vlkolinec - http://www.vlkolinec.sk/vsk/menu/kontakty. The page can be translated with the help of google translate to english. You might not get 100% translations but its still better than nothing! :). I recommend you to check the events and pick a day where they have something going on over there. You will get the insight into Slovak traditions and will get much better experience. Going to the Village itself is free...it will take you no more than 1 hour including taking photos. If you will be hiking to the village its 1 day trip from the valley. If you want to see the local exhibitions inside the houses you need to pay entrance fee near the parking lot. Its possible to hire a guide in foreign language on request. You check in advance with the info center...Hope it helps!
