I’m starting by saying that Victor was excellent. Unfortunately, 4 hours to reach, see and return by Morsie Oko were too less. I wanted to go there, sit somewhere calm, read a book and enjoy the panorama, but I only had like 20 minutes to stay there, because I had to go back at the parking spot where Victor was waiting for me.. Morsie Oko was beautiful, a little crowded but that’s understandable. Zakopane was magical, I can only imagine how that little city is in winter with the snow!

Es una caminata de 9 km con algunos de los mejores paisajes de montaña, para terminar en el lago.
