Giewont peak (1894 m), is one of the most picturesque peaks of the Northern High Tatras. This prominent rocky massif rises high above Zakopane, offering the best view from this town. Locals call it “the knight” of Poland.
Giewont is the most distinctive peak in the area and a symbolic mountain in Poland, with a special place in the Polish identity. The mountain offers amazing panorama views from the summit,in all directions, and it is one of the most popular hiking tours in the country.
We will start in Zakopane, and from there we will transfer by local bus to Kuznice (1025m)– the starting point of our hike. From there, we will walk into tge Kondratowa valley around the mountain hut to the Kondracka saddle (1725m). From that point we will start slowly hiking up to the summit of Giewont (1895m).
On the way up and down there is a section with chains for the security of tourists climbing to the top. Once we reach the summit, we can desced down by the same way or through the Strazyska valley until Zakopane.
The trip will take us in total from 7 to 9 hours. If you need any help with assurance on the chain section, I will be there to help you.

I'm a UIMLA mountain leader and national tourist guide (for cultural and historical heritage trips).
I was born in Poprad in 1969. From my early childhood, I often looked out my bedroom window into the distance of the picturesque High Tatras, which fascinated me even then. In high school I started going with my friends to a small climbing "expedition" on the surrounding rocks, and later to the High Tatras. Mostly I went with a friend whose father was a member of the Mountain Rescue Service. During my studies at Comenius University in Bratislava, I loved coming back to the mountains.
In 1999 I started actively volunteering paramedic of the Tatra Mountain Rescue Service, and then I was hired there.
Precisely because of my relationship with the mountains I began working as a tourist guide with a focus on mountain areas.
Since 1998 I accompany tourists from around the world to the mountains and surrounding towns.
In 2011 I got certified as mountain leader.
Besides, I have been working as a member of the Council of the Slovak Association of mountain Leaders since it was established in 2011.

Marcel is a very experienced and knowledgable guide who shared with us a lot of interesting facts of the region. He also took his time to explain a lot of details to us and helped us to take wonderful photos during the hike. Being a 1st timer to hiking, he has exceeded our expectation and is a highly recommended guide to engage.
A truly great guide Marcel Kubinsky, helpful and patient, he was prepared for different situations throughout the climb. Nice interlocutor, we spent the whole time talking about mountains, life at the mountains, mountaineering etc. We are happy about this climb.
Marcel was an awesome guide! The hike was the highlight of my trip to Poland
Absolutely brilliant day! Marcel is a great guide, knowledgeable and very safe as well as being really funny and a genuinely lovely guy. The via ferrata route was really interesting, different to Italy as it follows along the river and waterfalls. Beautiful. Marcel recommended other walks for us to do and how to get there via public transport. He was a real help. He picked us up from our accommodation and provided our equipment.
We had a wonderful trip with Michal. He met with us the evening before to go over the plan for the via Ferrata and answered all our questions. He took some wonderful photos of the trip and was so patient with our children. We felt completely safe the whole time and highly recommend the trip!
The guide Jakub was the best! He is an excellent guide and a great person, always with a smile on his face, even when I was slow ... He told me about the local nature and history. Very smart guide and good person, I felt very safe with him.
I had a wonderful day and hike in the Tatras. I recommend this tour to anyone who would like to practice climbing safely and/or wishes to learn more about the surroundings.
