“Wonderful Karpacz”
Reviewed 27 January 2014

Just came back from 17 days vacations in Karpacz. My resort had a great view of the Sniezka. I was planning on learning how to ski however there was absolutely no snow not even on the top of the mountain. That did not stop me from enjoying the town and area. With no snow and warmer temperatures I spent most of my days hiking on the trails, wondering through the town and just relaxing. Had a short trip to Jelenia Gora- great town-wish had more time there.

“Trekking for all ages”
Reviewed 30 September 2013

There are two ways to get to mount sniezka,either trek up or use the ski lift,both give you beautiful views,walking from karpacz is really only for the seasoned trekker,otherwise use the chair lift,be warned,you go on the ski lift on your own,you basically stand waiting for your seat to scoop you up,it is quite fast and if you struggle to cope with heights then you clearly won't enjoy the ride up.
If you do use the ski lift,remember to keep your ticket,you'll need to scan it into a machine so it lets you go down again to karpacz.
You actually then walk the last part up to the top of the mount sniezka,it depends on your overall fitness on how long it will take to get to the top,under-foot is quite rocky and uneven so using trekking poles may help you if your abit unsteady on your feet.
The views and scenery are truly beautiful and once at the top,you get panoramic views of poland and Czech Republic.
You can get food and drink at the restaurant at the top and use the public convenience,you will have to pay for that,but that's common for poland
Great day,highly recommend it

“Our first taste of trekking”
Reviewed 22 September 2013

The sniezka summit is visible from anywhere in Karpacz. When my relatives asked me about the building visible at the summit, I told them That's where we'll be going, I hope! In fact I really wanted to do it but was not sure cos of the kids. We went up by cable chair and then walked it all the way from Mount Kopa. Two trails are available, one longer but not so steep, the other quite steep and at present supposedly closed cos of construction works, although many people were still passing through it. Lovely walks with stunning views. Very expensive restaurant on top. Although summit seemed far away, it's a doable walk even with kids.
