The region of Małopolskie (lesser Poland) of which Kraków is the capital is one of Poland’s most worthy of exploration. From Kraków, tour companies have developed a really eclectic menu of day long excursions that will take you from the high Tatra peaks, to the slow-flowing rivers of this exceptionally beautiful corner of Europe
Zakopane is hailed as the Outdoor Activity Capital of Poland, and in the snowy months, the ice-capped mountain peaks enclose this traditional mountain town of wooden churches and crooning bars, making it a great place to get away from the city buzz for a day. The price of a typical tour to Zakopane is 200-250 PLN, depending what’s included. It is possible to reach the city of Zakopane to the south in just under two hours, and tours run daily throughout the year from Kraków.
