Are you planning a stay in the mountains during the winter holidays...?
In Czorsztyn and its surroundings, located between the Pieniny and Gorce mountains, many different attractions will be found for both amateurs of active and more peaceful leisure activities with friends
Kluszkowce is primarily known for the Czorsztyn-ski ski Center, where you can ski on 8 diverse trails, served by 6 ski lifts. The longest route is more than 1000 m long. All trails are artificially snowed, illuminated and groomed daily. The complex includes: cross-country ski trails, sports equipment rental, ski schools.
Other ski slopes in the area:
- Stacja Narciarska Polana Sosny w Niedzicy
- Stacja Narciarska Palenica w Szczawnicy
- Arena Narciarska Jaworki – Homole
Cross-country skis: the most popular trails are located near the Three Crowns Shelter. From there you cross to the Red Monastery, from which you can return to the Shelter or go on further adventures, such as the quite easy 12 km route to Lesnica and then to Szczawnica. You will also find cross-country trails at the Polana Sosny ski lift in Niedzica (from the upper station of the longest lift, a cross-country ski trail of 8 km in length is led in the direction of Kacwin). In addition, the Velo Czorsztyn bike trail itself in winter, in favorable conditions, can turn into an informal route for cross-country skiing.
In addition to groomed trails, the region of Gorce, Beskid Sadecki and Pieniny abounds in sensational terrain
for ski-touring, freeriding, trekking. A great substitute for skis is snowshoeing, which does not require special skills and preparation, and allows you to move through the snow without sinking (snowshoes can be rented, for example: at the PTTK Trzy Korony Hostel). An interesting point on the winter route in Pieniny may also be the Dunajec Gorge. The entire route leads along a wide road, almost on flat terrain, so there is an opportunity for children to go sledding for a very long time. The little ones will probably be delighted with the ride and the winter views.
Kulig is a good idea for both a romantic date and a fun evening out with friends. It can be a great adventure to flash on a cold, dark night into the unknown by torchlight. Such a trip can be ended with a bonfire, party or snowball battle. More info here.

A trip by chairlift to Mount Wdżar (767 meters above sea level) will allow us to admire the beautiful view stretching over the entire area. We can see, among others, four national parks (Pieniński, Gorczański, Tatrzański, Babiogórski), Lake Czorsztyńskie, the Tatra Mountains and the entire Nowotarska Basin.
In case of inclement weather, children will certainly be entertained by the opportunity to go crazy under the roof at the Ninja Park in Kroscienko nad Dunajcem.
