What people are saying about Zakopane

Fantastic experience from start to finish. Damian was fantastic, drove us to the location and was very friendly. Answered any questions and translated anything we needed. The dog sledding was an amazing experience I’ve not done before and getting to meet the dogs and spend time with them before hand was a very nice touch. I would definitely recommend!

From the start to the finish was great. Damien the driver collected on time drove us safely there and waited while we had our experience. The dogs were friendly and well trained. They worked hard throughout. The instructors were helpful. Then Damien drove promptly back to our hotel.

It was a great time. But, if you have a car drive to the starting point. Zakopane is CRAZY to drive in and find parking.

Very nice experience. Mr Jacub was very nice and very helpful. I recommend it

Had an amazing day and some unique experiences- Hektor was a wonderful host.
