The best active day trip : Trzy Korony mountain & Niedzica Castle

The best active day trip we offer from Krakow includes Trzy Korony mountain and mediaeval castle in Niedzica. It combines hiking in the mountains and visiting historical monuments.

The Pieniny range is the smallest of mountain ranges in Southern Poland but in the same time it is probably the most picturesque and spectacular. Within a few hours of undemanding walk you will see the most breathtaking views including, literally, a bird’s eye view to the gorge of Dunajec river followed by panorama of the Tatra mountains.

As this is the best active day trip you will have to do some excersise. From Krościenko you can climb to Trzy Korony peak witihn 2 hours and saturate your eyes with the beauty of the landscape. Than using a bit different way get back to Krościenko. This walk is neither long nor demanding. The route is well prepared by the National Park of th ePieniny mountains.

Instead of driving straight back to Kraków we can complete the tour with visiting some historical sights. The most outstanding of them is mediaeval castle situated on the rock above artificial lake in Czorsztyn. Than we will continue to Dębno to show you a priceless wooden church decorated with paintings from 15th century. It’s value was appreciated by inscription to the UNESCO World Heritage List.
