  • Summit Mt Rysy (2,499m), Poland's highest mountainSpend a night in the picturesque folk town of ZakopaneExperience the change of landscape from the Western to the Eastern TatrasChallenging walking and dramatic mountain views
The Trek the Polish High Tatras tour starts in Zakopane and ends in Krakow. The Trek the Polish High Tatras is a trekking tour that takes 8 days taking you from Zakopane to Krakow and through other destinations in Poland.

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.

Great Trek with excellent mountain facilities and excellent guides
“Our guides Teresa and Helena were excellent and did a great job of leading the group, encouraging where necessary and making sure the trek went smoothly. The trek was as described in the trip notes, challenging with some great scenery . The mountain huts were of a good standard, with good Polish food to help us refuel at the end of a tough day. The tacks were busier than I had expected, and at times did provide a challenge for the leaders to manage the flow of our party and other walkers up and down the chains.Overall an excellent trek”
