A family mixed-activity holiday in Poland and Slovakia including the royal city of Krakow and the stunning Slovakian Tatras - The Carpathian Mountains.  This holiday starts in Krakow, the former capital city of Poland with the biggest medieval market square in the world and continues to Tatranska Lomnica, a mountain village located in the heart of the stunning Slovakian Tatras. This will be your base for a number of different outdoor activities and adventures.

You’ll cycle, raft and walk through Slovakia’s most popular National Parks, UNESCO World Heritage Sites and beautiful mountains.

Take to the water and dip your oar into Poland with a rafting adventure on the Dujajec River. The river forms the natural border between Slovakia and its neighbour.

Up high into the hills next, with a cable car ride to Skalnate Pleso (1,751m) where you can explore mountain huts and cascading waterfalls on a scenic trek.

We’ve also found time to fit in some cultural visits - including a visit to the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Levoca  with the biggest wooden alter in the world and Spissky Castel, the biggest castle in Central Europe!

An exciting downhill bike ride takes you through valleys and lofty peaks to the historic town of Kezmarok – keep pedalling, this area is home to brown bears, Carpathian wolves and lynx!

This holiday is designed so all the family can join in, have fun and explore Polish and Slovakia’s cultural and natural beauty in the most exciting way possible – come and join us on an active, European adventure.

You will be met by your tour leader at the hotel for an introductory briefing. Depending on your arrival time, the rest of the day is free to explore Krakow’s attractions.

Hotel – Krakow, Poland

Krakow is a UNESCO World Heritage City, famous for its beautifully preserved Old Town. Explore three kilometres of city walls, 46 spires, countless historical buildings, narrow streets, churches and Europe´s biggest medieval market square. We’ve included a guided tour before a free afternoon to take an optional trip to Wieliczka Salt Mine, a labyrinth of underground caves, tunnels and halls.

Meals included: Breakfast

Today is a full day’s multi-activity adventure! Transfer to Pieniny National Park and explore the Dunajec Gorge, one of the longest canyons in Europe.

Then it’s time to take to the water for an easy rafting trip down the Dunajec River, which forms a natural border with Slovakia. The scenery is beautiful as it passes you by and the kids will surely make the most of splashing their parents as the raft idles along…!

The waterway takes us to our next destination, Lesnica, where we refuel with lunch, before taking to two wheels and cycling to Cerveny Klastor (Red Monastery).

The monastery was home to a monk called Cyprian who invented the hang-glider and established the first pharmacy in Central Europe.

In the late afternoon we drive to the village of Tatranska Lomnica located in the heart of the High Tatras, our home for the next five days.

This morning we take a cable car to Skalnate Pleso (1751m). Look out for Tatra chamois bouncing around on the rocks below!

Take a moment to admire the vista, before a family-friendly trek to Hrebienok. En-route you’ll visit mountain huts and the cascading waterfalls of Studeny Potok (Cold Creek). As you walk, the guide will keep the kids entertained with fun games and quizzes about the picturesque and interesting environs.

A final funicular ride takes you to Stary Smokovec, the oldest village in the Tatras. From here we take the famous Tatra mountain tram and return back to Tatranska Lomnica. 

Meals included: Breakfast

A short drive takes us to one of the biggest castles in Central-Eastern Europe, 12th Century Spissky Castle. It used to be the political, administrative, economic and cultural centre of this region; a local guide will walk you through all of the site’s interesting stories, in a way that’ll bring them to life for the kids.

You’ll take a tour of medieval Levoca, a UNESCO World Heritage Site with the highest wooden altar in the world, before our first exhilarating activity. 

Grab your bikes and don your helmets for a bike ride to the ancient town of Kezmarok. Kids (and big kids!) will love the freedom of zipping downhill through mountains and valleys in an area renowned for its wildlife and flora. 

Meals included: Breakfast

Get a unique, bird’s eye view of beautiful Belianske Tatras and Pieniny National Park on a treetop walk. The 600 metre long walkway takes you through the forest to an observation tower, where you can keep watch for rare and exciting wildlife. 

Next, take a mountain ridge walk to the village of Zdiar where you’ll learn about the local way-of-life, before a horse and carriage ride in the forest and unforgettable Slovak-style barbecue on an open fire. 

Meals included: Breakfast, lunch

Today is a free day so you can spend time as a family, or with your new-found sporting friends.

Definitely one for the kids, we can also help you arrange a day trip to Aqua City in nearby Poprad – a full-on water park with thermal pools, plus slides and shoots twisting and turning all over the place!
