Krakow: Zakopane & Slovakia Tour

Slovakia is located right behind the southern border of Poland, only 100 km from Krakow. During this tour we will take you to one of the most popular castles in the northern part of this small but beautiful country – the Oravsky Castle. It is located on a high rock above the Orava River and is famous for its characteristic shape which resembles an „eagle nest”. It is considered to be a „must-see” on the tourist map of Slovakia. On the way back to Krakow, we will stop in Zakopane – winter and hiking capital of Poland. Our guide will show you one of Zakopane’s biggest attractions – the Great Krokiew – an impressive hill with famous ski jump. Afterwards, you will go for a pleasant walk along the main commercial street of this mountain resort – Krupowki where you will experience local highlander culture and architecture. We guarantee it will be a fantastic full day excursion!

We offer private tours from Krakow to Slovakia and Zakopane on request.
