Trekking in the rugged mountains of Poland, plus the historic city of Krakow
The Polish High Tatras is one of the most rugged and spectacular ranges 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. Starting from the town of Zakopane, 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 of this scramble we gain a dramatic 360 degree vista of more than 100 peaks, in both Poland and across the border in Slovakia.
The walking is hard but rewarding, the terrain tough but beautiful, and the mountain huts basic but friendly, clean and hospitable.
Finally we visit Krakow, to relax and enjoy the delights of Poland's most fascinating city.
Please note: This trip has had a name change for 2013 season, the trip was formerly called The Polish High Tatras
