10 BEST hikes TO DO IN THE TATRAS

barbara

Ten recommended walks and trips that I present below are a completely subjective choice. These are my favourite routes, available to anyone who likes to walk and does it often enough to be able to walk with pleasure a distance of a few - several kilometres.

route 1 Nosal Kuznice

1 MT. NOSAL / Tatra National Park

2-3 hours / 5.5km / the highest point Nosal, 1206 m a.s.l. | not recommended in winter

Jana Pawla II roundabout - Aleja Przewodnikow Tatrzanskich St. - Bulwary Slowackiego St. - NOSAL (1.206m.a.s.l. - steep, rocky trail both ways) - Przelecz (pass) Nosalowa - Kuznice (count Zamoyski's park with XIX century buildings beautifully renovated) - Aleja Przewodnikow Tatrzanskich St. - Jana Pawla II roundabout.

You can also go on this trip in winter if there is a lot of snow and the trails are not icy. From Kuźnice to the city centre you can go back by bus.

route 2 Bialego Valley and Kalatowki

2 Bialego Valley and Polana Kalatowki / Tatra National Park

4-5 hours / 11km / the highest point 1324 m a.s.l. | all year round

Jana Pawla II roundabout - Czecha St. (you pass the ski jumping hills on the left) - the black trail to the entrance to Dolina Bialego (Bialego Valley) - the yellow trail, along the Bialego Stream to the intersection of trails - the black trail to Polana Kalatowki (Mountain Hotel Kalatowki) - the blue trail down to Kuznice (count Zamoyski's park with XIX century buildings beautifully renovated) - Aleja Przewodnikow Tatrzanskich St. - Jana Pawla II roundabout.

If the chair lift to the ski jumping hill Wielka Krokiew (the largest ski jumping hill in Poland) is open, it is worth taking a ride to the top to see a nice view of Zakopane. A tasty meal can be enjoyed at the Mountain Hotel on Polana Kalatowki.

route 3 Olczyska Valley and Mt. Wielki Kopieniec

3 OLCZYSKA VALLEY and MT. WIELKI KOPIENIEC / Tatra National Park

3-4 hours / 6km / the highest point Wielki Kopieniec, 1328 m a.s.l. | all year round

Jaszczurowka - entrace to the Olczyska Valley - green trail to the Polana Olczyska (karstic spring of the Olczyski Potok / Stream) - green trail to Wielki Kopiniec (viewpoint) - green/red trail down to Toporowa Cyrhla - minibus back to the centre of Zakopane.

From the centre of Zakopane to Jaszczurowka you can take a city bus or go on foot (recommended walks - route 3 Following Stanislaw Witkiewicz). In Jaszczurówka, it is worth seeing a beautiful, historic chapel designed by Stanislaw Witkiewicz. In the spring, on this route, you can admire the blooming crocuses

4 KOSCIELISKA AND CHOCHOLOWSKA VALLEYS / Tatra National Park

5-6 hours / 15km / the highest point Iwaniacka Pass, 1.459 m a.s.l. | all year round

In Kościeliska Valley there are three popular caves - the largest Mroźna Caves (with electric lighting), the smallest Smocza Jama (Dragon's Cave) and the most extreme Mylna Cave (absolutely necessary at least two flashlights to pass through this cave). The shelter at Hala Ornak offers tasty meals.

You can reach the Toporowa Cyrhla bus stop by bus or minibus going to Morskie Oko. The last stop of these buses is Polana Palenica. There is a charming wooden church/sanctuary of the Our Lady Queen of the Tatras near to the Rusinowa Polana which is worth visiting during the trip (here was my wedding :) It take 10 minutes to get there. You can read a nice story of the church here.
