The Number One thing to do in Zakopane and I can see why! The views from the top are stunning and amongst the best cable car rides I have ever done. A long uphill walk from the town centre (took about 45 minutes) so if you are unfit or have young children then consider paying for a horse ride or... More

It is a heart stopping ride of you are scared of heights but worth it for the view and experience of standing 'in the clouds' I have visited summer and winter and love them both but winter there is a bit magical

Walked for 1 hour to the base only to discover it was closed for annual repairs. A sign at bottom of hill would be helpful.

We got off the Zakopane central bus station and had a difficult time locating where we can get on the cable car for Kasprowy Wierch. The ride was smooth. it was snowing and very cloudy hence the visibility from the top but the journey to & fro was amazing. At the top, we enjoyed the weather and the snow fall.... More

This cable car is the only way to get to the top of the mountain , well if you are not into ski touring, great skiing if there is enough snow and the lifts are working which could be difficult to combine the two , or three since you really want to have great weather to enjoy the magnificent views....

Somewhat distant but very scenic walk to get to cable car. No need for pre-purchase of online tickets in early April...still skiing weather though. We just went up for the experience and view...great pictures and videos of the ride! Restaurant on top serves buffet style-decent food and beer!

It could be booked online BUT you need a Polish number to get the tickets (and send it to your own whatsapp number). Luckily we had our Airbnb host to help us! The journey to the ground station is via bus from the Zakopane town centre. You ride in small minibuses with friendly drivers (you pay when you get down... More

A must visit not good if you never done skiing before. No one to guide you but amazing views. We never saw snow before so for us it was an amazing experience seeing the snow and people skiing

Nice skiing but very very foggy. Just one lift and one slope open due to end of season though we had heavy snowfall that saved us from not being able to ski at all. Recommended period to go is February and March.

We've come here too early to walk up Giewont as some trails were closed due to weather. So after a bit of a walk we've decided to go up Kasprowy. There was no queue and our car was in 10 mins - perfect timing. And what fantastic views! It takes only 20ish minutes and even someone with vertigo can do... More
