Dear Guests e have a pleasure inintroducing the offer of active holidaysin the WPolish mountains. The programme focuses on the regions of southern Poland. In most of the cases the itinerary consists of at least one day to be spent in Krakow. Krakow is a unique city of rich history and culture, the place where the present is imbued with the spirit of the past. The location of the city is convenient for activities in various mountain ranges. That is why we made Krakow the starting and finishing point for all our trips. An additional advantage is an airport – Kraków Balice and a railway station – Kraków Główny – both located in the city. Our association namely The Polish Tourist Country- Explorers’ Society (PTTK) boasts long and rich traditions. PTTK is a nongovernmental organization which associates tourists and country admirers. At the beginning of the trip you will be provided with GOT books of The PTTK Mountain Tourist Badge (GOT). On all the routes with help of our guides you will be able to collect stamps and points for distinctions, which confirm your participation in the trips.
