Start in Zakopane and end in Krakow, the trip Trek The Polish High Tatras is a guided climbing tour that takes 8 days. You will travel through Mt Kasprowy, Roztoki, Tatra National Park and 4 other destinations in Poland. Trek The Polish High Tatras is a small group trip which includes accommodation, transport, meals and others.

The Tatra mountains are among the most rugged and spectacular in Europe, part of the granite Carpathian Range, rising to almost 2500m. The dramatic scenery, combined with a sophisticated network of footpaths, makes it a popular walking destination. On this trip, we trek through valleys, past lakes and over ridges before the final test, a tough ascent of Rysy (2499m), the highest mountain in Poland. From the top, we gain a dramatic 360-degree view of more than 100 peaks. This trip offers the great opportunity to experience the great change of scenery from the verdant Western Tatras to the The High Tatras, with their dramatic vistas, steep peaks, sharp rocks, deep glens, and crystal lakes. The walking will be hard but rewarding, the terrain tough but beautiful, and the mountain huts basic but friendly, clean and hospitable.

Trekking in the Polish High Tatras
5 - Excellent
“A mountain climb in Poland's Tatras mountains is an experience never forgotten. The mountains are stupendous to view, the trails are safe and well traveled, but the weather can at times be inclement. Our leader, Teresa, did everything to guide us safely and well and bent over backwards to make our trip enjoyable. I can highly recommend this tour for any climber with stamina and experience.

“I really enjoyed this trek. The group that completed the trek, including our super guide, Teresa, gelled really well and were all well up to the fitness level required. Two did not do the trek itinerary, as mentioned by Brendan McShane in a previous review. It indicates how essential reading the trip notes before you book your trip is!”
Trekking the High Tatras
4 - Very Good
“This was my first Exodus trip and I thoroughly enjoyed myself. I went with two friends and we met up with the other eight members of the group plus the Guide in Poland. The five days of walking was sandwiched between a night in Zakopane and two nights in Krakow with a visit to the Salt Mines and Auschwitz on the last day. Both the Mountain huts and the food exceeded my expectations. Apart from two members of our group who dropped out after the first day, the rest of us were of a similar level of fitness to enjoy the walking (and each others company) as well as the surrounding scenery which was very pretty.”

“This was a fabulous trip to see some great scenery, climb some mountains and get a sense of Poland. The huts are first class with great facilities and you won't go hungry with the food. You will need to be reasonably fit and not scared of heights.”
