We’ve been loving the ads in the Evening Standard today all about the joys of winter sports in southern Poland! We are of course sold on the magic of the Tatras, that’s why go back there winter after winter to discover more valleys and more hiking trails in the beautiful fluffy snow 🙂
So how do you get there?
From there you can use Zakopane as your base for exploring, walking in the snow, taking to the skiing slopes or indulging in a very atmospheric horse sleigh ride through the valleys (and don’t forget the sausages and black pudding with rye bread which will warm your cockles up). We’ve tried and tested the sleigh ride, you get lovely blankets and sheepskin covers to keep you warm while you enjoy the scenery – totally recommended!
Check the current weather here – at the moment we’re seeing snow and -3 in the daytime in Krakow at the moment and -6 in Zakopane!
- To whet your appetite even more for the beautiful Polish mountains here are some snowy photos of the Tatras.
