Visit Zakopane, Poland’s skiing capital, at the foot of the beautiful Tatra Mountains. After convenient hotel pick up, head to Chochołów to see traditional wooden houses, and stroll down Krupówki, the main street of Zakopane. Take a funicular up Gubałówka Mountain for great photo opportunities and a panoramic view of the Tatras.
Discover Zakopane and the beautiful Tatra mountains
For full disclosure I have visited many mountain ranges. Having said that I would rate the Tatra mountains only fair. Even more disappointing was Zakopane itself. What a tourist trap with over priced restaurants and countless souvenir shops. In addition we spent more time getting to and returning than we spent in the town and mountains. Please don't waste your time and money.
Our guide and driver, Tomas, was extremely helpful and courteous and had s great sense of humor. the group of six (made up of 3 parties of two who had previously never met) had s great laugh with him. We all noted what an excellent driver he was and how thoughtful he was of other drivers.
