Hiking in the mountains
Kościelisko lies in the very south of Poland and is often referred to as the ‘Gateway to the Western Tatras’. It’s a splendid starting point for mountain trips, both for beginners and advanced hikers. Here’s where you can enter the most popular Tatra valleys: Kościeliska and Chochołowska. You can have a stroll with your children or head for the higher parts of the mountains. Kościelisko is quite near to the High Tatras too if you want to conquer these more demanding rocky ridges. Wierchowa Chata will give you some useful trail maps and various hints on where you should go to discover the most beautiful parts of the Tatra Mountains. And Kościelisko itself is extremely easy to reach for instance from Cracow, either by bus or by airport transfer, taking you straight to the door of our cottage.
