Krakow Balice Airport
This trip takes you to some of the best places Poland has to offer. We will explore the natural beauty of the Tatra Mountains. There we will follow one of the most stunning trails through Dolina Pieciu Stawow (the valley of five lakes), Przelecz Szpiglasowa and Morskie Oko (The Eye of the Sea). And to cool us down a bit and relax after all the walking, we will do some rafting on Dunajec.
We will be visiting the former capital of Poland – Krakow. It is one of the oldest cities and the most beautiful one. The Old Town, together with the Wawel Hill and the Kazimierz district, are on the UNESCO World Heritage List. The Medieval urban layout of the Old Town has not changed for centuries. We will enjoy a guided tour of the old town as well as an evening expedition to the old Jewish quarter where we will soak up its magical atmosphere over a traditional glass of beer. You will also have a chance to party (at Kazimierz) on Saturday night where there are all the best bars in town, all walking distance from the hostel.

Rafting on this trip is not whitewater, adrenaline-fuelling rafting, rather you should expect a leisurely glide down the river.
