Let me take you to the highest point of Poland on this day-trek to Rysy in the High Tatras! Hike through some of the most picturesque mountain scenery on your way to the summit on the border of Slovakia and Poland.
Rysy is located in the main ridge of the High Tatras mountain range, right on the border of Slovakia and Poland. At 2,499 meters, Rysy claims the tallest peak of Poland, and even has an additional peak on the Slovak side.
It is a popular hike for adventurers and travelers, and during the summer offers multiple paths to get to the summit that vary in time and difficulty. Being surrounded by the lakes and wildlife as you climb makes this a once-in-a-lifetime experience.
And of course, the views from the summit expose the immense beauty of two countries – you couldn´t ask for a better vantage point.
Our program will start in Palenica Bialczanska at 1,000 meters. We will travel up to the largest lake in the High Tatras, Morskie Oko, and on to the second-deepest lake, Black Lake. The scenery around the lakes will give you a rare chance to explore the remote nature of Poland first hand.
The next leg of our ascent is a technically difficult hike, and will include a long section of path that is aided by chains. The reward for our hard work is reaching the summit of Rysy and its unparalleled panoramas, making the climb all the more satisfying.
After a small rest at the peak, we can choose to return to Palenica Bialczanska using the way we came, with a break at a mountain hut by Morskie Oko. Or we can also choose to hike down the Slovak path through Popradske Pleso to Strbske Pleso to experience both sides of the mountain.
This is a difficult hike, spanning 10-12 hours of trekking. You should be an experienced hiker and be in great physical shape.
Book now and spend your day on an unforgettable trek to the top of Rysy – one of Poland´s most incredible adventures!
