Day Tour to Zakopane and the Tatra Mountains

The spectacular Tatra mountain range, located two hours away from Krakow, is well worth a visit as you will discover on this tour which explores the charming city of Zakopane.

Many visitors to Krakow barely leave the city but if you have the time, the photogenic mountain range of Tatra and welcoming town of Zakopane are worth taking a look at.

This mountain paradise is only a scenic two-hour drive from Krakow and is home to numerous attractions, spectacular views, highlander cultural heritage and unique architecture -all framed by the stunning and often snowcapped mountains.

The city of Zakopane is the winter sports capital of Poland and its most famous resort. During the winter, plentiful snow and challenging runs make for excellent skiing while the summer months offer hikers' mountain lakes, glacial valleys and waterfalls. The mountains are also home to a unique and diverse range of flora and fauna.

This tour gives you the opportunity to admire the panorama of the beautiful Polish mountains. You can choose the way you will spend your time in Tatra Mountains. In addition to the traditional mountain architecture, magnificent folk costumes and jewelry have also survived here to this day. To better experience the true Zakopane atmosphere, take a walk along Krupówki, the central mall lined with restaurants, cafes, boutiques and souvenir shops. There is also time for a lunch break here (not included).

If you choose the "Thermal Pools” option and you will get to spend time and enjoy the biggest thermal pools in Poland. Enjoy some relaxing time in hot mineral water while admiring picturesque view on the Tatra Mountains. There are 13 different pools for you to jump in! Water temperature of 36C allows you to enjoy the bath even in the winter, surrounded by the snow.
