Hiking trips

Thanks to a diverse ground curve, the Małopolska district provides entertainment for every type of tourist.

From the south you will fi rst come across the tall and rocky Tatras, gradually transforming into the Orawsko-Nowotarska Basin. From the west, the fl at basin is encroached by the Lesser Pieniny range, built from white limestone rocks, and from the north, the lush hills of the Beskids. Amongst them rises the lone peak of Babia Góra – the Queen of the Beskids. Whilst continuing to trek north, we will reach an area where the Beskids make way for the low hills of Pogórze, to further progress into a sharp threshold marking the end of the Carpathian mountain range. A bit further we will come across two uplands – Krakowsko-Częstochowska and Sandomierska. A dense network of tourist trails enables us to reach all the most interesting areas of the region. Amongst the most famous Polish mountain and fl atland tourist trails are the Tatras’ Orla Perć (Eagle Path), the Pieniny’s Sokola Perć (Falcon Path) and the Perć Akademików (Academics’ Path) leading to the top of Babia Góra, as well as the longest ones – K. Sosnowski’s Main Beskid Trail (Główny Szlak Beskidzki), the Little Beskids Trail (Mały Szlak Beskidzki) and the trail from Tarnów to Wielki Rogacz. We cannot also forget the famous Trail of Eagles’ Nests (Szlak Orlich Gniazd) or the Trail of Jurassic Strongholds (Szlak Warowni Jurajskich).
