Rafting and hiking in Tatra Mountains and sightseeing in Krakow

  • Jun 5, 2014 · 7:45 PM

This trip takes you to some of the best places Poland has to offer. We will explore natural beauty of Tatra Mountains, where we will follow one of the most stunning trails through Dolina Pieciu Stawow (the valley of five lakes), Przelecz Szpiglasowa and Morskie Oko (the eye of the sea). And to cool us down a bit after all the walking we will do some rafting on Dunajec. 

We will be visiting the former capital of Poland - Krakow. It is one of the oldest cities and the most beautiful one. The Old Town, together with the Wawel Hill and the Kazimierz district, are on the UNESCO World Heritage List. The Medieval urban layout of the Old Town has not changed for centuries. We will enjoy a guided tour of the old town as well as an evening expedition to the old Jewish quarter where we will soak its magical atmosphere over a traditional glass of beer.  You will also have a chance to party there (at Kazimierz) on Saturday night where there are all the best bars in town, all walking distance from the hostel.

Please note that in order to keep the costs low, the trips are set up in such a way that they can be fully managed online. The descriptions are very detailed and try to answer all your questions and you will find additional information in pages section of the website. Please only email us if your query is not answered in the event's description andplease only call us in case of emergency. I'm afraid we will not be able to get back to you if your query is answered above as with over 60 events coming almost 4,000 members and current volume of emails, this would require hiring admin support and setting up a call centre, which as you can imagine would increase the costs of the events considerably.

    Emie, as promised I have asked everyone if anyone wanted to pay for your part of the room and get a single one, but no one wanted to pay extra, I'm sorry.

    June 6, 2014

  • Kat

    I would recommend that you exchange the money before coming as there is only one cash point there and if it's out of service, there may be no other way to get the money on the way.
    Thank you,
