We will pick you up from our meeting point at BazaTatry, by the main station in Zakopane. Our first stop will be at the famous Jaszczurowka Chapel, a unique wooden chapel built by the most famous architect in Zakopane, from here we will start our hike through the spectacular National Park. The hike is moderate and offers some beautiful views onto the high Tatras, we will finish at Kuznice where we will share some more secrets about the culture and people in the area, also visiting a Bacowka to sample some smoked sheep cheese. (The Bacowka is closed from October-May but we will still stop at the hut for some interesting facts about the sheeps cheese) The last stop is at a local restaurant where we will advise you on some of the traditional dishes to try (this is optional but you will probably be hungry after the hike and the local food is good :) The restaurant is 10min walk from the city centre, you can choose to walk back or we can organise transport for you.
