Zakopane was amazing! We were picked up on time and the journey there was fairly smooth with little traffic. We had a private car and guide for the entire trip which was great. Jakub was very friendly and gave us plenty of time to explore. The first stop at the sculpture shop was adorable, and the cheese shop afterwards was amazing. We purchased souvenirs and tried 4 different cheeses - the whole experience even before we got to Zakopane was gorgeous. Once we got to the village, Jakub gave us plenty of time to explore and get lunch. There are many options and places to visit, plus the views are breathtaking. We had an amazing time. On the way home, we ran into trouble with traffic and eventually got stuck in the snow trying to go over a hill. Jakub was amazing and managed to drive us home in horrible conditions, and a massive thank you as well as the 4 guys who helped push us up the hill. We would not be making our flight home without him!

We arrived in Zakopane about 1:45 from Krakow. You reach a stunning area in its beauty. It is recommended to go to the cable car and enjoy the view of the Tetra Mountains. If you have time and the driver allows So it is also advisable to do snowmobile trips
