Most outdoor activities in Poland are based around Zakopane. The best way to get here from the exterior is by bus or train from Krakow, which is served by both an international airport and Euro-rail station.
There are plenty of outdoor activities available year-round in Poland. The spring, summer and autumn are great times for hiking, while the winter is an excellent chance to ski tour.
Zakopane is the starting point for the best Polish outdoor adventures. The 350-year old city is easily accessed from Krakow and makes for an excellent escape from the daily grind. Its idyllic setting, nestled in between the Tatras Mountains and Gubałówka Hill, will make you feel like you are staying inside the setting of a fairytale. The region is home to the Goral culture, which boasts unique cuisine, music and architecture. More than 2.500.000 tourists visit the small city to take in the culture as well as the outdoor activities each year.
Helena was previously booked so I was guided by Beata. Beata was highly accommodating, passionate about her mountains, architecture and people, and went above and beyond what I had paid for! She was particularly careful to keep me safe at all times as the mountain top was icy and slippery – but there was no problem. Beata was so kind in showing me around Zakopane as well and introducing me to friends and family – even asked me join her friends on a day trip out of Zakopane to see some other beautiful areas around the area. Beata was at all times curious as to what it was I loved to do and see. Truly an amazing and unforgettable experience!
Beata was wonderful! Thank you for the experience, challenges and memories.
I am not a strong mountain hiker, and need many small breakes during ascending. Peter was very patient and controlling the pace very well. We were relatively lucky with the comfortable weather, and saw both wild life and beautiful High Tatras and Rysy Summit.
Peter is very experienced guide and mountain rescuer, he cares these mountains dearly. You will be in good hands hiking with him.
I had a wonderful day and would do it again!
Good Communication, very knowledgeable about the hike and the surrounding areas history! Mt Giewont was breathtaking mid October. Perfect weather! Would highly recommend the Guide and the Hike : )
