Your chance to
Summit Mt Rysy (2,499m), Poland's highest mountain

3 nights en suite pensions and 5 nights standard mountain huts (dormitory accommodation)
Summit Poland's highest mountain, Mt Rysy
The High Tatra mountains are among the most rugged and spectacular in Europe, part of the granite Carpathian Range, rising to almost 2500m. The dramatic scenery, combined with a sophisticated network of footpaths, makes it a popular walking destination. We trek through valleys, past lakes and over ridges before the final test, a tough ascent of Rysy (2499m), the highest mountain in Poland. From the top of this scramble we gain a dramatic 360 degree view of more than 100 peaks. The walking is hard but rewarding, the terrain tough but beautiful, and the mountain huts basic but friendly, clean and hospitable. At the end of the trip we enjoy the delights of Krakow, Poland’s most fascinating city.
