Full description
Visit the popular winter resort of Zakopane on a full-day private sightseeing tour from Krakow and discover Poland’s most popular resort for skiing, rock climbing, rafting, trekking, cycling and paragliding. Begin your exploration of the area by visiting the highlander’s cottage and tasting the traditional highlander cheese known as oscypek. Then, continue your tour in the Koliba Villa, the Museum of Zakopane Style. After the visit to the museum, you will take the funicular railway to Mount Gubałówka for eye-popping views over the granite and limestone peaks. Return to the oldest part of Zakopane and wander the characterful main street of Krupówki to immerse yourself in Zakopane culture. Listen to the Podhale dialect - a language only spoken by the highlanders of the Tatra Mountains - admire beautiful handmade outfits, hear traditional music and peek into the workshops to see how the local art is made. Before World War I, Zakopane was widely regarded as the art and culture capital of Poland, a status it earned thanks to the many artists, writers and musicians who settled there. Among them was the painter Stanislaw Witkiewicz, who established a unique mountain cottage style of architecture known as “Zakopane Style.” You can learn more at the Tatra Museum. Having returned to the oldest part of Zakopane, you will have a chance to visit the enormous regional market and have lunch in a regional restaurant serving local specialities while enjoying your free time.

We were a group of 4 and we pre booked the trip several weeks before travelling. Communication from the point of booking to the trip itself has been excellent. Details of pick up communicated as promised the day before. We were picked up on time and had a fabulous day. Very well organised, friendly driver and great value for money. Would definitely recommend. Thank you Get your Guide…. job well done!!

This was an excellent day ! I very nearly didn’t book it but so glad I did . From visiting a small village , crossing into Slovenia , visiting a shepherds hit and tasting local cheese to the funicular ride it was all amazing . Even though it was overcast the mountains were a majestic sight. Adam our guide was superb and managed the day professionally but in a relaxed and entertaining way - 10/10 to Adam and 10/10 for the tour
