Experience the gorgeous nature of the Western Beskids on this amazing hike to the top of the lovely Babia Góra!
May, Jun, Jul, Aug, Sep, Oct
On this unforgettable adventure in Poland's Western Beskids, we will climb to the top of Babia Góra, the highest peak in the region.
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.

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!
Stay up-to-date on the best adventures.
