Zakopane and Tatras Mountains Day Tour from Krakow
USD 71.62
Overview
Explore Zakopane, Poland’s popular destination for winter sports, and the Tatra Mountains on this day trip departing from Krakow. Escape the bustle of the city and head to the top of Mt Gubalówka on the funicular railway. Soak up incredible views from the peaks before discovering Zakopane’s traditional mountain architecture, shops, the Tatra Museum and more. Your day will conclude with transportation back to your Krakow hotel.
What to Expect
Begin your tour with pickup from your select Krakow hotel. Accompanied by a local guide, head to the funicular railway for a scenic ride to the top of Mt Gubalówka. Soak up the views of the Tatra Mountains and take a brief walk around the peak.

Afterward, travel back down the funicular to Zakopane, Poland’s popular destination for winter sports. Follow your guide to see the old cottages of the mountaineers, enclosed by ash trees and blackened by the sun. Built by the Polish artist Witkacy, learn the history behind the wooden houses and churches as you explore.

Continue with a stroll along Krupówki, the bustling mall lined with restaurants, cafes and local shops, where you’ll pause to relax with some lunch.

Conclude your day trip with a visit to the Tatra Museum in Zakopane or a stop at the old wooden village of Chocholów before journeying back to Krakow.

Very professional company

This was our third tour with this company. Always professional guides, good buses and convenient pickup and dropoff near your hotell. We really enjoy the trip to Zakopane. Lovely city, amazing view from the top and much to see.

Another perspective of Poland

It’s good to get away from the old town and the churches in Krakow for a while. The view in the mountain is spectacular. Our guide, Jack, is most professional and knowledgeable. He shared a lot about Poland with the group and is hilarious.

Zakopane and tetras mountain private tpur

Excellent, Phillip tended to our comfort and was a very informative host. The top of the mountain offered breath taking views. I highly recommend the “toboggan” run down the mountain, they will pull you back up when you are done
