Carpathian Mountains

+1 Days

May - Oct



* Enjoy a magnificent view point: Babia Góra is the highest peak in the area.

* Discover the amazing nature of this protected area and well preserved Carpathian forests.

* Join a hiking adventure that is just 1 hour and 1/2 away from Krakow.


On this unforgettable adventure, we will climb to the top of Babia Góra - the highest peak of Western Beskids (1725 m asl) and the 2nd highest mountain massif in Poland.

Babia Góra offers magnificent views of surrounding mountain ranges including the Tatra Mountains and is the only mountain in the Western Beskids, where an alpine belt can be observed at the top of the peak. Babia Góra massif is located in a national park in the Carpathians, which has acquired the status of Biosphere Reserve and was included in the UNESCO “Man and Biosphere” program. This makes it an amazing spot to visit while in Poland.

Our adventure starts in Zawoja. I offer transportation by private car from Krakow for a group of up to 4 people. The route to the summit of Babia Góra can be adjusted to the experience and physical fitness of the group members. We also have the chance to stay overnight in the mountain hut in Markowe-Szczawiny or enjoy a meal there on the way down. Because we can enjoy some flexibility, you can let me know your preferences and we can organize a tour adapted to your level.

Send your request today and let's start planning an unforgettable hike in Poland's Western Beskids mountains. I look forward to guiding you!

What people are saying about Pawel



This trip exceeded our expectations from start to finish. Pawel was a fantastic guide, very experienced and had an incredible knowledge of the geological features of the Gorce mountains and surrounding mountain ranges as well as the historical aspects of Polish history. As beginners to snowshoeing, Pawel was understanding and knowledgeable of the most suitable routes to take. In addition, at the beginning of the trip we presented Pawel with a problem which he resolved with empathy like a true gentleman. For that we were truly thankful. The whole trip was incredible. Memories created that we will never forget. Thank you so much!
