Walking Polish Tatras, Zakopane-Poland

The Area

Zakopane is located in the far south of Poland and is the country’s highest town and lies on the slopes of the High Tatras from 750 to 1000m above sea level.

It is Poland’s premier centre of mountain walking and is the most convenient base for walking in the spectacular Tatra National Park.

Zakopane offers a number of museums the most significant and oldest being the Natural History Museum of the Tatra National Park.

The Walking

The Tatra mountains, part of the Carpathian range, extend for over 30 miles and form the border between Poland and Slovakia. There are numerous side ridges spreading out from the main ridge forming deep valleys. Well -marked paths are plentiful (155 miles in total) extending through meadows and canyons shaded by spruce, pine, oak and larch trees.

The Tatras are fashioned of both hard granite, forming frayed soaring crags, and limestone creating more gentle shapes with numerous caves and other typical limestone features. Nearby is the Pieniny National Park which provides a pleasant contrast in walking with its choice of paths along the fast flowing Dunajec River into Slovakia (don’t forget your passport) or a walk to the top of the park’s spectacular limestone peaks.

Getting About

The National Park does not allow any vehicle access, but from Zakopane you can reach all the trail heads providing access into the Park by bus. Zakopane is also the origin of the only cable car into the Park.

We provide details of local transport required for each walk in our Walk Booklet.

Self guided - we offer a choice of walks for all abilities. Most walks require a bus ride to get you to the start of the walk and back at the end or use of the cable car from Zakopane. Some of the higher walks lead to places where a head for heights is an advantage but there are alternatives in each instance.

Guided - Independent Walking

We can arrange a private guide for a group of walkers or individual travellers if required contact us for details. It is a local requirement that groups larger than 10 people have a guide.

Two Centre

Why not combine a week in Poland with a week in Slovakia, the same mountain range but a completely different experience? We can provide the transfer between the two. Contact us for more information.

High altitude and surrounding high mountains are main factors of Zakopane's mountain climate. The higher paths begin to be free of snow in May but this does vary from year to year. The highest rainfall is in June and July when it falls mainly in thunderstorms. September and October are months noted for long periods of beautiful sunny weather.
