  3. Enjoy walking in very well preserved natural Carpathian forest, which is protected by the National Park.

Description

At (1310 m asl), Turbacz is the highest peak of the Gorce Mountains in Poland. On this unique 2-day adventure, we will enjoy the sunset and sunrise in this emblematic location.

We will set off from Krakow and transfer to the starting point of the trek. We will hike for 5 hours along the trails of the Gorce National Park, which is known for its very well-preserved natural Carpathian forest. From the top of Turbacz, we will enjoy a gorgeous sunset and then settle in a mountain hut for the night. The following day, we will hopefully see the sunrise too, continue hiking and then return.

Keep in mind that we will hike for approximately 5 hours each day, which means you must be fit to join the trek. Of course, we will guide you every step of the way!

I was looking for a local guide for a hike I was planning and came across Explore-Share. They seemed to have good reviews and so decided to give them a try. The experience was very positive and completely happy with their service. I will be using them again for next trip.

Thank you explore-share for a wonderful via feratta experience. We have been wanting to learn for a long time but don't have the facilities in Scotland. The guide Mitja was extremely helpful and knowledgeable, answering all my many questions and providing advice. On the day head to take another group but he quickly arranged another guide Borut, who was brilliant. We had a fantastic morning learning via ferrata at Hvadnik in the gorge. It gave us the confidence to later hire our own equipment and go out in Mojstrana. Altogether a five star + experience. Thank you.

Hello! I have been thoroughly impressed by the service and assistance that explore-share have provided the past couple years in helping to plan my trip to the High Tatras in Poland. I really appreciated the flexibility that they provided in allowing me to rearrange my trip twice owing to covid. They were responsive and communicative throughout. This trip was part of my Stag weekend celebrations and explore-share connected me with an outstanding guide in the form of Marcel - he was an excellent recommendation and we really enjoyed our guided hike in the High Tatras with him. Marcel was an outstanding professional, placed a high focus on preparing well and staying safe, and was also a great guy! Highly recommend. Many thanks and best wishes - Richard

Our first time with Explore-Share. An absolutely fantastic experience from start to finish. Extremely good value, very well organised with attention to detail. We travel widely and this has by far been the best of experiences. Well done to all concerned. We are already looking at booking another trip!
