Magical sleigh ride. I took my 74 year old father on this sleigh ride as it was something we had wanted to do whilst in Zakopane.Very easy to book, good clear instructions and the horseman met us at the entrance to the valley.We were given a lovely warm blanket and off we went on our ride through gorgeous snowy scenery to a lodge that served us hot chocolate and a yummy cake.The horseman told us that his father had also been a horseman and his son may also grow up to do this, nice to see traditions still alive in some places.The horse was well looked after which was also nice to see!Overall a magical experience in beautiful surroundings would totally recommend!

We enjoyed a lot our sleigh ride in Chocholowska. I would like to thank the attention that you had with us. I have no doubt I'd repeat with you again (and with the same weather!!!!). The driver of the sleigh ride was very friendly too. I hope to repeat next year if we can visit Zakopane again!!!

Thank you very much!!! Dani

What time is recommended to start the sleigh ride?

In my opinion the best time to start the sleigh rides in the Tatra National Park (Chocholowska and Kościeliska Valleys) are the morning hours (between 8.30 and 9.30am), before the valleys get crowded of walkers, hikers and other sledges.

What would be appropriate clothing on the sleigh ride?

Ski jacket and pants would be the best option, don't forget gloves and warm hat. The coachmen supply blankets that assist to keep you warm also.

No, they won't.

Does your offer is the cheapest one in Zakopane?

No, it isn't the cheapest one, but I hope it's the best one:)

Should we expect any extra fees?

No, all the obligatory fees are included but you can of course buy some extra meals (or alcohol drinks...) in the mountain refuge.

Do the coachmen speak English?

Some of the coachman speak basic English and we are doing our best to employ them for our sleigh rides.
