Full description
Hike to Morskie Oko Lake and back on this full-day trip into Poland’s wilderness. At about 7:30 AM, you’ll be picked up from your hotel and take the 2.5-hour journey from Krakow to Tatra National Park, Poland’s most-visited nature reserve. Once there, take an enjoyable 2.5-hour walk to Morskie Oko Lake. On your hike, you’ll pass by the beautiful Mickiewicz Waterfalls, whose roar can be heard for miles.
