The Giewont peak, rising to 1894 m, is a symbol of Zakopane, the famous resort town in the south of Poland. In fact, its limestone cliff is visible from everywhere in the city.

There are chains all the way to the top. Indeed, we will use this protection on the slightly steep sections. Once we reach the summit of Giewont, you won’t believe the views! But the trip is not over yet. We will continue to the Strążyska Valley and then to Zakopane.

The trip in numbers:
Altitude change: +/- 1900m
Duration: 5:30h walk + 1:30h break
Distance: 12km

Does this hike sound tempting? Then please get in touch with me so we can make plans! It will be my pleasure to lead you up there. Of course it’s possible to combine this 1-day trip with other trips I offer. I also offer other hiking trips, as for example this Beautiful day hike in the Red Peaks.

About the Guide


I am deeply passionate about the mountains.
In 199 I started working as a mountain guide, in the beautiful Tatra Mountains. But my relationship with this terrain started much earlier, when I was a child. Already at 3 years old, I climbed my first mountain: a stunning 400 meters!
From then on, I kept constantly participating in mountain adventures. I gained in this way both experience and professionalism. I am also a certified international mountain leader (UIMLA).
I practiced hiking and climbing not only in the Tatras, but alto in the Alps, Andes, Dolomites, Caucassian Mountains, Himalayas and in the lower European mountains. Actually, the more I know about the mountains, the more humble I feel towards them. While hiking, climbing and ski touring, I admire their majesty, beauty and ruthlessness.
I used to be an engineer and a chemist, but neither working in corporations nor teaching in a school were my dreams. Now that I work in the mountains, I feel happy, following my passion.
If you like to go to the mountains, you are for sure looking for adventures. But you should know that it's best to be safe, and this is a big advantage of going with a mountain leader.
