We visited Zakopane in August but it is considered to be a winter destination with lots of skiing trails. Even in the summer we could enjoy the scenic beauty of Zakopane and the Tatras mountains from certain vantage points. A must for all nature lovers.

Throughly enjoyed this tour provided by Cracow Tours, our tour guide Jack was very knowledgeable and informative providing a detailed insight into the Zakopane history, geography and the local customs, Zakopane is a delightful place and the views from the viewing area of the snow covered Tatra mountains were absolutely stunning, I have visited Zakopane in the early spring and in December when the entire mountain area was covered in snow AMAZING
Special thank to our tour guide on this tour.

Zakopane was beautiful and Christopher our tour guide was knowledgeable and humorous. If you go to Zakopane stop at one of the numerous booths selling a cheese only from that area. I loved it.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended September 2017

Amazing guide who really wanted to be there! He not only had brilliant knowledge about all aspects of the trip but also allowed us to deviate from the 'set plan' of going to the museum etc. Instead we partially climbed this brilliant mountain with a beautiful waterfall at the top and then proceeded to Zakopane. Zakopane itself is very pretty in good weather and gives spectacular views at the top of the funicular.
All 5 of us on the tour had an amazing time and I cant praise our guide enough!
