Polish Tatra gay adventure tourUnder two hours by car from the historic city of Krakow, visitors to Poland will find the rugged peaks of the High Tatra mountains. They rise against the southern plains of the country in a sudden bulwark of chiselled granite, soaring to snow-topped pinnacles. The highest peak in this mountain range and the highest in Poland is Rysy , 2,503m . This is the highest part of the Tatra trek, which also crosses the Orla Perc, or Eagle’s Path, which is an adventure hike like no other.

The rugged peaks of the Tatra mountains (Tatry in Polish) form the natural border between Poland and Slovakia. The Tatra mountains became a National Park in 1955 and was also established as an official UNESCO biosphere reserve. The park is rich in flora and fauna with flowers, pinewood trees, bears, wolfs, wild cats, and marmots. It’s the only alpine mountain range in Poland. Located only two hours by car from Krakow, the Tatra National Park is easily accessible to hikers and skiers.

Trip Notes

Poland is a welcoming country that is unfortunately going through a politically motivated phase of marginalising its LGBT communities. Same-sex unions are not legal in Poland and there are conservative anti-gay rights groups that are trying to ferment hate towards LGBT individuals. That said same-sex relationships are not illegal and many Polish people are welcoming. Our Polish guides will not disceiminate and are working hard to make you feel welcome as gay tourists and give you an adventure holiday to remember.

There are many LGBT activists and groups that are fighting against this prejudice. Although it feels like hatred and intolerance is on the rise in Poland the vast majority of Polish people are friendly and welcoming but it is wise to be discreet and avoid public displays of affection. Rather than boycotting Poland we are visiting Poland to show the benefits of embracing gay and lesbian tourists. We are supporting our local guides you support our ‘love is love’ ethos.
