Full Itinerary

Krakow is considered a real cultural and historical capital of Poland, but locals know that besides the must-see icons and views, the city offers many places to charge your batteries and rest close to nature. We would love to show you the Tatra Mountains and the city of Zakopane – our favorite mountain destination located only two hours drive from Krakow. Beautiful landscapes, amazing wooden architecture, highlander lifestyle, regional dishes served in traditional restaurants and available on the local market.
On the way to Zakopane, we will admire beautiful panoramic views of the Tatra mountains and we will discover how to make traditional, smoked cheese – oscypek. Later we will have light trekking in the picturesque, mountain valley and after a traditional, highlander-style lunch we will explore the alive folklore of Zakopane and see its original monuments and unique wooden architecture.
(As the weather in the mountains is unpredictable, the trekking part of the tour will be adopted in a way to give you always the best possible experience).

Angela from Great Britain traveled on 30 Sep 2020:

MUST do! If I could give this experience 10 stars, I would. If you want to get out of Kraków city for the day, THIS is the way to go. Tomasz was the kindest, considerate, and knowledgeable guide of Tatra National Park, Zakopane, etc. He has been vacationing there his entire life and his love and enthusiasm for the area lend a very special touch. The hike, sites, food, and overall experience and company were the best. Thank you, Tomasz!

Michaela from the Czech Republic traveled in March 2019:

The Polish countryside is amazing and I really liked getting to know it on this trip with Tomasz. He was the perfect host, being a mountain guide, knowing all the trails, and adjusting the route for our group. I enjoyed the cheese tasting and loved the pierogi lunch 🙂 once again, thank you for a great day!
