The Polish High Tatras

A well organised trip and with a very good group leader. A very friendly bunch of people and everyone got along well. The Polish and Slovakian mountains are just beautiful and should be visited more by tourists (although it is heavily visited by locals during holidays). We were very lucky to have all days of sunshine and clear views during the trek, and even had the opportunity(!) to hear a wild bear on the second day of walking. Exploring Krakow at the end of the trip was a relaxing treat.

Trek the Polish High Tatras

A well structured trip. Some sections of chain came as a surprise to some members of the group. The trip description mentions these sections however given the torrential rain that our group climbed in, for some this was a very serious undertaking. For those with experience of scrambling and exposure it was not too much of a problem but I did feel sorry for the ones with little of said experience. Grading may , in my opinion, be a shade low. Huts were excellent as was the food. The Tatras are very popular and on one day in particular it was estimated that 10,000 people had visited a central area. It is an exceptional area with adventures available for all levels. The period in Krakow was excellent. A beautiful city full of charming restaurants. It was great value for money.

Enjoyable weeks walking despite the rain

The week started well with brilliant sunshine and great views but on the second day of walking the thunder clouds gathered and the rain started and the views largely disappeared. It continued on and off for the remainder of the walking. Despite this we all had an enjoyable time and the group gelled well. The walking did not seem quite as hard as stressed in the trip notes. Maybe it was because of the weather but the routes did not seem anywhere near as crowded as mentioned in some of the reviews I read before I went. It was nice to warm up and dry out in the sunshine in Krakow.

THE POLISH HIGH TATRAS

A really good mixture of hard mountain walking ending with a couple of days of rest and culture in Krakow.

THE POLISH HIGH TATRAS

This was a great holiday, walking through and scrambling up some of Europe's lesser-known, but wonderful mountains on the borders of Poland and Slovakia. Beautiful scenery and the good company of a mixed and friendly group made it a holiday to remember.

THE POLISH HIGH TATRAS

This was a great trip with beautiful scenery and sufficiently strenuous walking to make you feel like you'd earned the big meals in the mountain huts at the end of the day.

I chose this trip on the basis of dates to fit my available holidays. It exceeded by far my expectations in most respects.

THE POLISH HIGH TATRAS

I love hills and am a good strong walker, but even I was surprised at the steepness of the mountains and the trails that pretty much always bomb straight up them. But saying that if you are a good walker there is some great trekking to be done here......as long as you don't mind 2000 other people along for the ride.

Exodus Response

In response to comments regarding the busy trails on this trek. The summer is the best time of year to trek in these mountains and this is also when many families go trekking. It is an extremely popular pursuit both with Slovakian and Polish families and the schools are also on holiday during the summer. The trails are less busy in September .

THE POLISH HIGH TATRAS

A challenging trek in some impressive mountains, but some trails are very busy. Only 5 days actually trekking in a 9 day holiday.
