  • Immerse yourself in the rich heritage of the Highlanders
  • Get away from the hustle and bustle of urban life
  • Appreciate the breathtaking views that the Tatra Mountains offer


Your journey in Zakopane commences with a captivating vista of the Tatra Mountains, which can be admired from the summit of Gubalowka Hill, accessible by a cable car ride. Zakopane, a picturesque town nestled at the base of the Tatra Mountains, enjoys year-round popularity among both Polish and international tourists. Established in the 16th century as a collection of seasonal shepherd settlements, Zakopane has undergone significant transformation over the centuries, evolving into a remarkable urban center. En route to Zakopane, you will make a stop in Chochołów, a charming wooden village where inhabitants still reside in the original wooden dwellings constructed by the indigenous Polish highlanders—an area designated as a UNESCO World Heritage site. You'll even have the opportunity to step inside one of these historic houses and immerse yourself in the lifestyles of its former occupants. Continuing your exploration, you will visit a Bacowka, a traditional shepherd's cottage, where you'll savor the renowned local delicacy, Oscypek cheese, and witness the artisanal cheese-making process. Subsequently, you'll meander through the local, time-honored marketplace and stroll along Krupowki Street, replete with eateries, boutique shops selling regional products, and souvenir emporiums. After a satisfying lunch, your journey will lead you back to Krakow, passing by the renowned ski jump and concluding with a visit to a quaint wooden church on the outskirts of Zakopane.
