Little and Maków Beskids
For those who want to feel the fresh mountain air on their skin, we suggest hiking routes: the Small Beskid Path running along the main ridges, routes in the Koskowa Góra Range, in the Babica Range and these leading to Mountain of John Paul II and Leskowiec. The Małopolska Pope's Trail, being one of the most interesting thematic routes in the region, leads in the footsteps of Karol Wojtyła, the later Saint John Paul II. Its main route leads from Kalwaria Zebrzydowska to Stary Sącz (231 km). Several side routes depart from it, and the total length of the trail, along with variants, is about 620 km. The trail uses the existing PTTK tourist trails network.
We recommend skiers to check out the local ski lifts: Czarny Groń, Arena Myślenice and Szklana Góra.
The Beskid bicycle routes are very varied. Beautiful views and architectural curiosities will make every enthusiast of cycling tours delighted. The multitude of paths and roads enables quick escape towards civilisation in the event of bad weather or equipment failure. We especially recommend the trail around the “Little Wawel” leading by the castle and the “Rzym” inn in Sucha Beskidzka. Cyclists especially value the trail around the “Free Time Zone”, which includes Zarabie, Zamczysko, churches and the Greek House in Myślenice as well as churches in Pcim and Trzebunia. Another interesting bicycle route leads by the Sanctuary and paths in Kalwaria Zebrzydowska and in their vicinity.
