Do you like walking? Would you like to explore walking in a foreign country? Come walking with us to Poland, an exciting, friendly and beautiful place to visit. Fantastic ALL INCLUSIVE PRICE OF £445.
South of Poland is a region of great cultural and geographical beauty. With Krakow, the ancient seat of Polish kings and a World Heritage Site in its centre and majestic Tatra mountains on the Polish-Slovak border, great local cuisine and vibrant cultural scene, it definitely is a place to visit.
This year Social Circle invites you to an all inclusive week in Poland to come walking with us in the foothills of Tatra mountains. A short range of Jurassic limestone peaks, rearing above the spectacular Dunajec Gorge, the Pieniny range offers some stiff hillwalking but require no serious climbing to reach the 1000-metre summits, with the peaks of Trzy Korony (Three Crowns; 982m) the big target. Jagged outcrops are set off by abundant greenery, the often humid mountain microclimate supporting a rich and varied flora. Like the Tatras, the Pieniny are an officially designated national park and have a network of controlled paths. With sheep herding on the grassy slopes, wooden houses and beautiful churches, old strongholds and castles, traditional folk dress and customs and the famous local smoked cheese it definitely is a place to visit!
