The Treetop Treetop Walk offers a breathtaking view of the Tatra and Pieninski National Parks and provides information about flora and fauna as well as good entertainment with a playground and quizzes for the children. On the tower, visitors with a head for heights can still balance on a net made of strong ropes. The two-hour rafting tour takes you through the border river Dunajec, which winds its way through forest and rocks, in the midst of beautiful and preserved nature. Only the local “highlanders” who offer tours on wooden boats cannot be understood without knowledge of Polish. The driver from Legendary Krakow was entertaining, cosmopolitan and interested.

David Kapusta accompanied us as our driver and he was fantastic. He answered questions, allowed us time at attractions, was informative and engaged with u throughout our trip. David drove diligently and applied a relaxed feel to the whole day, something which was welcomed given we were out for 14 hours! A trip well worth doing, views were amazing and the thermal bath was a brilliant experience given the DJ they had during our session! Would highly recommend to anyone wanting to see more of Poland beyond Krakow if they have the time. Thank you so much!

I visited Goracy Potok for the first time in winter, but the option of spending an evening in the mountains in thermal waters was a hit. The facility is perfectly adapted to all events "in the water", excellent infrastructure, music and good fun. You can order a meal, drink or massage without leaving the water. In addition, the driver's service was very nice, also in English. Guests from abroad were impressed by the excellent organization. I recommend!

Fantastic tour encompassing a range of activities! The views were absolutely breathtaking at the treetop walk and at zakopane, and finishing the day in the thermal pools with a drink in hand, steam rising from the water, admiring the mountain range in the sunset was a dream come true! Our tour guide Michael was very informative and cheery, ensuring we made the most of each activity and our day ran smoothly!

Excellent trip especially due to the weather. Clear views on a beautiful day. The scenery is breathtaking and it was worth the journey.
