Once the snow begins to pile up in the mountains, hiking is no longer a viable option. But fear not, strapping on some snowshoes can get you up into Poland’s mountains and give you a new perspective of this incredible winter-time landscape!

While Poland is a fairly large country in eastern Europe, only a very small southern portion of the country has mountainous terrain. While the space in which to snowshoe is limited, the options are still plentiful.
The mountains in Poland are divided into two subranges, the High and Western Tatras, both of which offer plenty of great snowshoeing opportunities.
Aside from climbing Rysys, Kościelec 2,155 m (7,070 ft), which is also in the High Tatras, is another popular snowshoeing option. The prominent church-shaped peak offers stunning views of the Valley Gąsienicowa below.
In the western Tatras, Giewont (1,895 meters/6,217 feet) is another popular snowshoeing destination. The mountain boasts the main summit and two other summits as well as numerous other limestone caves. This makes it the perfect place to spend a day or more exploring on some snowshoes.
During the winter, average daily temperatures hover just below freezing in the mountainous regions of Poland. Winter is also fairly dry in the Tatras Mountains of Poland, but still receives between 15 and 25 millimeters (0.6 to 1 inch) of snow each month during the season.
Any snowshoeing trip to Poland likely begins with a flight into John Paul II Kraków-Balice International Airport (KRK). From here, the Tatras Mountains in the south of the country can be reached easily by rental car, bus or train.
