Full description
After pickup from your hotel head out on a scenic 2-hour drive to the starting point for the trail to the lake. Deep in the Tatra Mountains, Morskie Oko Lake was formed by glaciers. The lake is surrounded by some of the highest peaks in the Tatra Mountains, which makes for magnificent views. It is also home to many animals, birds and even natural fish stocks (something that is rare in the Tatra Mountains). The hike to the lake is 8 kilometers long and takes about 2-2.5 hours each way. The hike is along a paved roadway and is not difficult. You'll enjoy beautiful views along the walk including several mountain waterfalls. At the end of your visit to the lake, you'll hike back to the starting point and then head back to your hotel in Krakow.

Amazing! Our driver was so lovely and helpful too.

Die Tour hat rechtzeitig angefangen, der Fahrer war extrem angenehm, freundlich und hat unterwegs noch Informationen über Krakau erzählt. Es gab keine Führung zu Meeresauge und auch etwa 2 Kilometer sollten wir zu dem Parkplatz zu Fuß gehen. Vor Ort wurde herausgestellt, es gibt keine Begrenzungen für PKWs. Also der Fahrer konnte uns ruhig hinbringen. Die Zeit vor Ort haben wir möglichst verkürzt, um nach Zakopane zu fahren. Aber uns wurde mitgeteilt, wir werden in einer halben Stunde abgeholt. Wegen meiner nicht ausreichenden Polnischkenntnissen wurde verabredet, uns wieder 2 km entfernt von dem Abholort zu treffen. Dann wollten wir zum Hotel nach Krakau, mussten aber noch circa 1,5 Stunden im Gebirge fahren, um andere Mitfahrende abzuholen. Unterwegs waren wir 6 Stunden. Das Erlebnis dauerte 5,5. Ich würde das eher als eine Mitfahrgelegenheit nennen, aber kein Gruppen-Erlebnis. Der Fahrer ist eine sehr angenehme Person.

The park was beautiful, but the tour itself was a bit disappointing. Our driver told us 5 hours would be plenty of time; 2 to climb up, 1 to spend at the lake, 2 to hike back. Instead of walking we could opt for a ride with a horse carriage up the mountain (which would take an hour). We choose the carriage, but it was so busy: when we arrived at the lake we had just 40 minutes left. We couldn't eat at the restaurant (too busy, too little time). We just made some photos and walked a bit through the crowd. We headed back on time, but realized 2 hours were not enough to go down. So we walked very fast without resting once. Then the driver called me to say that he was waiting and we should walk even faster! :( So this tour is not suited for 5 hours. We still had to rush eventhough we took the carriage, so if we had hiked both ways we would've never been back on time. I'm young, healthy and love hiking, but I felt very rushed on this tour so I couldn't take in the beauty of the place :(
