Overnight stay how much can we feasably fit in ?

Myself and a friend are travelling to Kracow for a week in July booked into the Chopin Hotel. We plan to come to Zakopane on an early bus stay overnight then go back to Kracow teatimeish the day after. Ive been looking at the variety of things to do and want to do as much as possible while remaining realistic. Things ive seen are Market, Funicular to Gubalowka, Peska Cemetry, Raft ride, Kaprowsky Wierch and Morskie Oko. Neither of us are particularly fit so several hour treks may be a bit much. we want to stay as central as we can afford so to enjoy the evening entertainment was thinking Willa Orla if anyone can suggest a way to do this and approximate costs it would be very much appreciated.

Kind Regards

Rafting, Kasprowy, Morskie Oko, Gubalowska... all in one and a half day? In my opinion it will be exhausting, or maybe not possible at all.

you could do the rafting one day and morskie oko another day but not both in one day.....gubalowka and the cemetary you can fit in as you wish..but usually you go up to gubalowka when you get there as you are out on krupowki anyways and it just seems to lead you there...sometimes the weather has alot to say as to what to do in zakopane..villa orla is a bit far out from town....maybe a 1o 15 minute walk from krupowki

It depends on what interests you the most. Mind that the Dunajec river rafting is not in Zakopane, you have to travel to another village and that takes time. Kasprowy Wierch is usually a whole day trip or 2/3 day trip. If you want to fit in so many things then maybe you could think about using some tour agency? You will pay more but they will drive you to locations and guide you.

Thanks for all your input, I think maybe the rafting will be out then.

What about if on arriving (hopefully late morning buses permitting) we did funicular to gubalowska market and cemetry then go out for a meal, then on the next day either Morskie oko or Kasprowy Wierch then catch a late bus back to Kracow if im choosing between the two which one is more 'must do' thanks in advance and Casey 15 min walk is ok i just didnt want to use taxis.

first day have lunch on gubalowka....after lunch walk west along the path about half a mile and take the chairlift down....stunning scenery from the chair lift!...it will get you to the kasprowy hotel below....its the big hotel.....you could walk to your hotel or wait for the van that will take you into town every hour on the hour.....now....if you want you can just hang out or you could go up to kasprowy wierch.....make reservations ahead of time otherwise you will waste all your time in line....the next day if its hot i would do the raft ride.....its something different of a sort than going to morskie oko which is a long walk.......if the weather is bad just find a nice restaurant bar and hunker down......chata zbojnice and the restaurant at the sabala hotel are my favorite places at night.....sabala has the best house band.....drinks before or after dinner at the sabala then dinner at chata zbojnice?....in any case if the weather is splendid, you just might want to eat al fresco along krupowki
