After nearly 10 years of exploring this amazing mountain range, we bring you a week you will never forget. From the heights of Rysy sitting at 2503 meters with 800 meters of fantastic chained scrambling; to the exasperatingly exposed Orla Perc (The Eagles path, think Crib Goch on steroids). This truly unique mountain range ticks all the boxes for those who like their hiking “hands on”.

We will base our self’s in Zakopana, the “Chamonix of Poland”. This vibrant town offers lots to enjoy after a hard day on the hill: fantastic local food in the traditional restaurants; local music performed live by traditionally dressed musicians; along with great souvenir shopping at a fraction of the price of Western Europe.

Who is this for?

This is a fun but challenging week, you should be of a reasonable fitness and have experience on grade 1 Scrambling terrain in the UK and have a good head for heights (routes such as the CMD arete, Crib Goch would be good previous experience). Due to the nature of the ground on this trip, we offer a free training day in Snowdonia (North Wales) to give you the relevant skills needed to tackle such a challenge.

Although we may use additional equipment to protect ourselves during the more “tasty” scrambling sections, this is not a climbing trip, and no skills related to this are a requirement.

Itinerary

Due to the nature of the ground we will be flexible with days during our trip and seek the best conditions, having Orla Perc and Rysi as the highlights of the trip.

Rysy 2503 meters

We will take a traditional horse and cart from the main car park to Morski Oko (1395 meters), this is a fantastic journey and avoids the walking the initial non-technical terrain. We will the gain height to reach the first chained section, passing beautiful lakes and amazing vistas. The the scrambling begins, with over 800 meters of fantastic grade 1 scrambling on solid rock. We reach Rysy at 2503 meters, sitting on the border of Poland and Slovakia.

Orla Perc/ The Eagles Path (2 days long)

The path was conceived in 1901, the brainchild of Franciszek Nowicki, Polish poet and mountain guide. Additions to mountain have been fixed in place to aid our ascent including: ladders, stepladders, chains and metal steps. The most frequent ground constitutes mainly of granite slab, scree and ridge traversing. We will move safely and slowly, enjoying the atmosphere and the truly unique landscape, an incredible experience.
