Giewont is a beautiful mountain in the Tatra Mountains of Poland. This rocky massif rises at 1894 meters high above Zakopane and it is visible from everywhere in this town. Join me on this day hike and reach the summit of this very special mountain!

The mountain holds a very special place in the Polish identity and locals call it “The Knight” of Poland, for its characteristic shape, similar to a lying knight. Giewont offers spectacular panoramic views from the summit, in all directions, and it is one of the most popular hiking tours in the country.

From  Zakopane we will transfer to Kuznice, where our hiking tour begins. Surrounded by beautiful views we will hike into the Kondratowa valley until we reach the Kondracka saddle (1725m), from where we will slowly begin hiking up to the top of Giewont (1895). Once in the summit, you will be rewarded by amazing views!

The ascent offers a section with chains, on the way up and down the mountain, for the safety of hikers. The descent can be made by the same path or we can either go down through the Strazyska Valley to Zakopane. Bear in mind the total tour will take us between 7 to 9 hours.

If you want to hike up to the top of Giewont, just contact me and book your place! I will be happy to guide you on this great day hike from Zakopane.
