Are you looking for an exciting winter adventure? Then you need to come and join me on this Ski touring for beginners in the Polish Tatras.

The Polish Tatras is a beautiful area located in the south of the country. It’s the natural border between Poland and Slovakia and a perfect spot to start discovering the huge world of skiing outside the traditional ski resorts and discover the mountains from a new perspective.

So I’ve designed this 2-day program for beginners, so I can show you the first steps of this exciting winter activity.

On the first day you’ll learn how to properly use the gear: How to set up the skins, get to know the ski bindings systems and most important how to use the avalanche safety set. This activity will be done in the Kondratowa Valley or some other spot with an easy access and a mellow descent, so you can practice without any inconvenience.

Then on the second day we’ll go out for a fun but not to demanding ski touring excursion through the Western Tatras. It could be on the slopes of the Red Hills or around the Chocholowska Valley.

So if you want to start learning the basics of a new discipline that will allow you to get to places you only dreamed about, send me a request and lest start planing this Ski touring tour for beginners in the Polish Tatras.

And if you want to try another kind winter expedition in this area, please also check my Zakopane guided snowshoeing day tours.

About the guide

I'm a UIMLA-certified mountain leader based in Zakopane, Poland. I've been practicing mountain activities and spending a lot of time outdoors since a very young age thanks to my father, a mountain guide and a member of the mountain rescue services.

I'm passionate about nature and trekking. I invite you to join me to discover the beautiful Tatras mountain range and the area around it!

Our plan was for snowshoeing, but unusually warm weather meant snow cover was too light. Helena came up with a hiking route as an alternative, supplied all of the equipment and was the perfect guide. We were lucky to find such a well-suited guide as her, so thank you too, Explore-Share.

Had a great time hiking with Helena. She is always laughing and smiling. She has in-depth knowledge about the Tatras having grown up in the area. Can highly recommend her for guiding.

Helena is an amazing guide who is a consummate professional, very knowledgeable, pays attention to every detail and most importantly has a very positive which allows every client to reach inside a little bit more for a very enriching experience. Her passion about mountains is evident. I would highly recommend going on an adventure with Helena!

Explore-share should be clearer about what is and what is not included in the trip fee.

We really liked snowshoeing. Guide was wonderful, snowshoeing wasn’t easy but view was amazing. I really recommend that’s experience!

Really great experience doing a snowshoe hike in the Tatra mountains - I was fortunate enough to have sunny weather after a few days of light snow so conditions were amazing. I just did it on my own and Helena was super accommodating and made small changes to the route on the fly to make things more interesting. To be clear if you book this experience you are booking a professional mountain guide so the route they take you on can easily be adjusted to your group requirements and where to go for best conditions . Helena was extremely knowledgeable of the area - both in terms of her knowledge of the local trail networks and in chatting to me about the history, culture and geography of the Tatra mountains as we progressed along the hike. The route we went on was about 400m elevation (which I was comfortable doing) and the view from the summit was incredible. Would definitely recommend the experience if you want a great way to explore and view the Tatra mountains

Helena was a super personal guide for the tour. She aligned the trip to our wish (e.g. starting time, finishing nearby the thermal pool) and made a wonderful day for us. Guiding just the two of us made the whole trip very personal and flexilbe which we recommend for others as well. Thank you.

Helena was an awesome guide, making every effort to make sure it was a good experience! She rented all the equipment and even picked me up from my hostel! She has a lot of experience with mountain sports, as well as great knowledge of the area. While we were driving to the Tatras, she gave a short driving tour of Zakopane, explaining some of the architecture and history. We snowshoed for about 4 hours on a BEAUTIFUL day. She really enriched the experience with her knowledge of the ecology!

Helena was previously booked so I was guided by Beata. Beata was highly accommodating, passionate about her mountains, architecture and people, and went above and beyond what I had paid for! She was particularly careful to keep me safe at all times as the mountain top was icy and slippery - but there was no problem. Beata was so kind in showing me around Zakopane as well and introducing me to friends and family - even asked me join her friends on a day trip out of Zakopane to see some other beautiful areas around the area. Beata was at all times curious as to what it was I loved to do and see. Truly an amazing and unforgettable experience! Beata was wonderful! Thank you for the experience, challenges and memories.
