Chochołowska Valley with a local mountain guide

  • The westernmost valley of the Polish Tatra Mountains.
  • The largest shelter on the Polish side of the Tatra Mountains.
  • In spring, millions of crocuses bloom here.

The route follows along the westernmost valley of the Polish Tatra Mountains – Chochołowska Valley. The valley is known for partisan activities during World War II, a planned balloon flight into the stratosphere, and the meeting between Pope John Paul II and Lech Wałęsa in 1983. In spring, Chochołowska Glade is filled with millions of crocuses. The glade is home to the PTTK shelter, which serves the best apple pie in the Tatras – the Chochołowski dessert. During the season, from spring to autumn, it is possible to use the "Rakoń" mountain tractor from Siwa Polana to Polana Huciska.
