The trails in the High Tatras near the Slovakian border offer some of the most remarkable sights, from crystal clear lakes to rainbow-colored rocks. This may be the smallest alpine range in Europe but it packs a big punch. The trails are clearly marked and getting lost is difficult, although it never hurts to bring a map along.

If you’re going for a long-term hike, you’ll find plenty of places to stay along the way, although a bit of advance planning can help you relax and focus on enjoying the journey. Camping sites and mountain hostels and huts are readily available in all the popular hiking areas, while hotels are also a possibility as many trails begin or end in city centers.

The summer is the best time for hiking in Poland, but it also draws the biggest crowds so stick to June or September if you want to encounter fewer people. Some mountain trails are closed in the winter so be sure to plan ahead. Also keep in mind that hiking in national parks is only permitted on designated trails.
