The Vtacnik Mountains, occasionally Vtáčnik Mountains (Slovak: Vtáčnik), is a range in central Slovakia, which forms part of the Slovak Central Mountains (Slovenské stredohorie) within the Inner Western Carpathians.
It is bordered in the west, north and northeast by the upper Nitra basin, Strážov Mountains and Žiar, in the east by the Kremnica Mountains and Žiar basin, and in the south by Tribeč and the Štiavnica Mountains.
It is divided further into these geomorphological units:
- Vysoký Vtáčnik ("High Vtacnik")
- Nízky Vtáčnik ("Low Vtacnik")
- Župkovská brázda ("Zupkovska Furrow")
- Raj ("Paradise Mountains")
The four highest mountains are: Vtáčnik (1,346 m), Biela skala (1,136 m), Buchlov (1,040 m), and Žiar (845 m).
