From Kraków: Slovakia Treetop Walk and Tour of Zakopane

1. From Kraków: Slovakia Treetop Walk and Tour of Zakopane

Discover the natural beauty of Slovakia's breathtaking Tatra region from the treetops, before exploring the popular holiday town of Zakopane. Travel from Krakow to the treetop walk in Ždiar, a folk village with distinctive architecture and culture, situated in the very north of Slovakia around 10 kilometres from the Polish border. Enjoy a scenic walk up-hill for 30 to 40 minutes to reach the unique treetop path, which is 18 to 24 meters high and is surrounded by magnificent tree crowns. Feel on top of the world on the wooden pavement, which is held up by huge pillars and stretches over 600 meters. Reach out and feel the treetops as you find yourself in the heart of the forests of Bachledova Valley. Indulge your senses in a breathtaking panoramic view of the Tatra Mountains and Pieniny National Park. With fair weather, gaze out over the highest peak of the Pieniny mountains in the distance: the iconic Three Crowns Massif.  This tour is perfect for families, nature lovers and mountain lovers alike. For the adrenalin hunters, there are special fragments of the route with obstacles, which can  also be omitted. For the ecologists, learn about rare local wildlife by reading educational plaques. Walk at a leisurely pace to the 32 meters-high observation platform situated on the border of Pieniny National Park and Tatras National Park. Observe the majestic natural world below. When you have finished, feel a rush of adrenalin as you slide down a 60-metre slide straight to ground level, or walk at your own pace back down the hill. Then, travel back into Poland to explore the authentic town of Zakopane, nestled at the base of the stunning Tatras Mountains. Proudly named the "winter capital of Poland", this beautiful town is Poland's most popular holiday resort. Visit Krupowki, the vibrant and bustling main street. Chat to some locals and discover what village life has to offer, before shopping for charming souvenirs. During this tour, you will be able to see the unique Chocholow village and its traditional wooden houses, which were built by the local highlanders years ago. Spot the historical wooden chapels along the way. You will also be able to view the ski jump hill, which is used for the Grant Prix Ski Jump Competition.

What people are saying about Zdiar

Very enjoyable day out and great way to see more of the Tatra Mountains. Journey was not difficult or long from Krakow and driver/guide was very accommodating and helpful as and when we needed. Plenty of time to enjoy the treetop walk although if we had walked up instead of taking the cable car this might have been tight. Recommend doing the slide down but it is an additional 2 euro-worth remembering you don't pay in zlotys as in Slovakia! Cable car extra as well which is 11 euro each, view at the top is beautiful. Tour in Zakopane is not really a tour more a chance to explore the main street which has plenty of shops, access to the cable car up to the top which is worth doing for the views and plenty of good shops to buy gifts. Arrived back in Krakow not too tired as well so a good use of a day exploring further afield

We had a fabulous day out. Guide contacted us the day before with location and time to meet. Also responsive to emails via contact us in the get your guide app. Guide was friendly and informative, was always contactable, on time and told us about the areas as we drove through them. We spent time in Zakopane exploring the town and eating local foods. Tree tops walk was great. Was shorted than we expected but it is defo worth going if you’ve never experienced anything to do with snow sports before and you go on the gondola and have the full experience. We all loved our day and would use this company again . Thank you

Very well organised and good value for money. Our driver, Milo, was really friendly and gave us advice for good places to eat. The drive out to the Tatra walk was around two hours but passed quickly with the scenic views. It is of course incredibly cold so you need snow/ski wear. Zakopane itself is quite touristy and everything is in cash so make sure you have plenty. Milo took us to a little hut for some local cheese which he grilled for us along with some local vodka - really tasty! Would recommend

Our Guide Milo was fantastic! Chatty, friendly and knowledgeable. The trip was great, travelling to Slovakia and then back to Poland to Zakopane. Luckily when we went there was snow so it all looked extra fantastic. Highly recommend.

Excellent day in the company of Rafi, available and very friendly guide who made us discover the Tatras in Slovakia, and the city of Zakopane, leaving us plenty of time each time at each stop.
