Zakopane Excursion Trips

ZakopaneIf you have ever visited Zakopane Poland, you know that the Zakopane shopping, attractions and nightlife are enough to keep you more than entertained within the city.  However, there are several great excursion trips that are worth leaving venturing out from the city during your vacation activities in Zakopane.

  • Gubalowka – At the end of Krupowki Street, take the Funicular Failway up to Gubalowka.  You will have excellent views of the Tatra Mountains from an attitude of 1,120 meters.  During the winter, visit the nearby skiing areas to enjoy a morning or afternoon ski run and during the summer enjoy the beautiful sun as you relax and take in the surroundings.
  • Kasprowy Wierch – At the top of this famous peak, you can stand on the view platform and see for miles. You can also enjoy a great meal at the restaurant and tour the meteorological observatory located there.  During the summer, hikers enjoy the 2.5-hour hike along the path from Kuznice but if you prefer, you can also take the cable car to the top.  Make sure you remember your camera because the views form the platform are breathtaking.
  • Droga Pod Reglami – Also known as the “Under the Forest Walk,” this is an easy walking path that is only at an altitude of about 900 to 940 meters.  At a leisurely pace, the path takes between 1.5 and 2 hours to walk.  It is an enjoyable way to spend an afternoon and see the beautiful landscape of the region.  The path is unmarked but most people begin at the Great Ski Jump and end at the entrance to the Strazyski Valley.
  • Giewont – Giewont is one of the most famous mountains in Poland.  At an altitude of 1,895 meters, the peak provides excellent views of the city and the surrounding valleys.  At a moderate pace, most hikers can reach the top in fewer than four hours by following the marked path beginning on Koscieliska Street and travelling through the scenic Strazyska Valley.
