Zakopane Tours and Activities

star-4.5
208 Reviews
Zakopane
Considered Poland’s winter capital, Zakopane is a snow-sports paradise situated at the foot of the Tatras. Attractions include the Gubałówka mountain resort, the nearby thermal springs, and the Wielka Krokiew ski jump. The town is also known for its rich Goral heritage and traditional architecture, as well as sweeping summertime views.

The Basics
Many full-day tours depart from nearby Kraków. Some excursions combine a tour of the town of Zakopane—including sights such as Krupówki Street, the Sacred Heart Chapel, and the Bukovina thermal baths—with active exploration of southern Poland’s national parks, on foot, by boat, or on a snowmobile. Alternatively, head straight to the slopes for a day of skiing or snowboarding—lessons are available.

Things to Know Before You Go
  • Many Zakopane attractions are accessible to wheelchairs, including the Gubałówka funicular railway and the Kasprowy Wierch cable car.
  • Some tours include admission fees; otherwise, there’s a small charge to enter Poland’s national parks.
How to Get There
Zakopane is around two hours from Kraków, with regular bus service connecting the two cities. The train takes a little longer, but affords good views as it winds its way through the valley. If you’re driving, keep in mind that Zakopane is pedestrianized, so you’ll need to leave your car in a garage or outside the town.

When to Get There
Though Zakopane is best known as a winter wonderland, the area’s summer sights are by no means inferior. In fact, Zakopane’s mild summers are ideal for hiking, cycling, and water sports, with several tours dedicated to exploring the lush valleys and green slopes of the Tatras.

A Taste of Traditional Poland
A must-try for first-time visitors, oscypek is a smoked cheese made of sheep’s milk, and a product of the Podhale region dating back to the 15th century. The shops along Krupówki Street often sell their own versions of the spindle-shaped cheese. Or, learn how to make it yourself at the Oscypek Museum.
