Małopolska - Active Summer

Małopolska - Active Summer

Forests and mountains, lakes and rivers and an abundance of sports grounds makes Małopolska an ideal place for those looking for active leisure. While taking advantage of the charms of wild nature, you can cover hundreds of routes: hiking, cycling or horse riding, and see numerous, fascinating historic monuments along the way. The trips presented in this guide will take you down Małopolska’s most beautiful trails and routes, passing by cities and popular holiday resorts.
Małopolska also means lakes and rivers marked by their unique beauty. One of the must-see spots is the Dunajec River Gorge – the famous and popular water tourist route. It can be crossed on a raft, but more consummate and adventure-hungry visitors will definitely choose a mountain canoe. Another exceptionally beautiful spot is the Poprad river gorge in Beskid Sądecki. Picturesque landscape and tourist attractiveness also characterise the region’s artificial lakes. Although created by man, they beautifully merge with the landscape, while the beaches, water sports equipment rental points and other facilities will let you spend some wonderful time by the water.
Małopolska is also a real paradise for climbing enthusiasts. The rocky peaks of the Tatra Mountains, the calcareous monadnocks of the Kraków-Częstochowa Upland, and even the sandstone rocks and boulders of the Carpathian Foothills offer thousands of climbing routes. Those interested can use artificial climbing walls and improve their skills in climbing schools. To feel free as a bird, all you have to do is take a flight in a glider, a trike or on a paraglider. You will forever remember the mosaic of fields, meadows, forests, mountains, lakes and rivers watched from high above. Those looking for adrenaline can try skydiving, and there are many more attractions for thrill seekers: you can enjoy a battle on one of the numerous paintball grounds, try bungee jumping, go rafting and much more.
