Skiing & Snowboarding
For winter sports there is hardly a better place for variety and value for money than Zakopane. Nestled in the heart of the Tatra Mountains – the peak of the Carpathians, a north eastern offshoot of the Alps – Zakopane has a wide range of slopes and runs catering for everyone from beginners to those with advanced abilities.
Take time to explore the Tatras in a truly unforgettable way by booking a day of snowmobiling. A fantastic way to have an action-packed adventure whilst taking in the breathtaking beauty of the mountains. Rental and professional guides are available.
Cross Country Skiing
For those of you who prefer the horizontal to the vertical, There are many wonderful cross country trails to follow. The Krokiew area near the ski jumps is the place to go and it is possible to find some less travelled routes for complete peace and quiet which will make those spectacular views all the more enjoyable.
Zakopane is an ideal location to try this sport. Our recommended guide, Joanna, is happy to escort you for a day or a half a day to get you started, after which you can follow the many picturesque trails “touring” from mountain shelter to mountain shelter where hot and tasty food and drink is readily available.
During the winter season Ice Rinks operate on Grundwalska and at the Harenda ski area.
