FAQs: Snowshoeing in Poland

What should I know about Snowshoeing Poland?

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.

Why should I choose Poland for my Snowshoeing adventure?

Stunning scenery

Composed of rugged and rocky mountain peaks, thick evergreen forests and many pristine mountain lakes, the Tatras Mountains in Poland are a stunningly scenic spot for a snowshoeing adventure. Adding fresh and undisturbed powder to the mix turns a beautiful mountain vista into a truly sublime experience. Strap on some snowshoes and head to the Tatras this winter.

Climb Rysys

Rising to 2,503 meters (8,212 feet) in elevation, Rysys is the highest peak in all of Poland. Starting from Zakopane, it only takes one day to climb to the top of this rugged and beautiful peak on some snowshoes. While not technically difficult, the mountain presents a good physical challenge. Views from the top are an ample reward for those who make it to the summit.

Head hut-to-hut

There is nothing quite like getting out of the regular routine for a few days and heading into nature. Hut-to-hut snowshoeing experiences in Poland are the perfect way to do so. Hike up into the Tatras from one of many starting points and explore the impeccable mountains within. Wind your way to a cozy mountain hut in the evening and repeat the process again the following day,

What can I expect from the weather in Poland?

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.

How can I get to Poland?

Helena was a super personal guide for the tour. She aligned the trip to our wish (e.g. starting time, finishing nearby the thermal pool) and made a wonderful day for us. Guiding just the two of us made the whole trip very personal and flexilbe which we recommend for others as well. Thank you.

Really great experience doing a snowshoe hike in the Tatra mountains - I was fortunate enough to have sunny weather after a few days of light snow so conditions were amazing. I just did it on my own and Helena was super accommodating and made small changes to the route on the fly to make things more interesting. To be clear if you book this experience you are booking a professional mountain guide so the route they take you on can easily be adjusted to your group requirements and where to go for best conditions . Helena was extremely knowledgeable of the area - both in terms of her knowledge of the local trail networks and in chatting to me about the history, culture and geography of the Tatra mountains as we progressed along the hike. The route we went on was about 400m elevation (which I was comfortable doing) and the view from the summit was incredible. Would definitely recommend the experience if you want a great way to explore and view the Tatra mountains
