Krynicka Setka

That is everything that is most beautiful in the Krynica Mountain Run combined into one. An unforgettable sunrise on the observation tower, morning arias on the slopes of Jaworzyna Krynicka, flocks of sheep near the shepherd’s huts, numerous springs of mineral water, which are the real treasure of the Sądecczyzny region. The aria of Kiepura, the return of Nikifor and the lost Lemko villages, the queen of Beskid Niski – Lackowa and a solid dose of elevation in one. You will visit all ski stations in the area of Krynica, but none of them will take you up, which you will surely miss more than once! And at the end you will be rewarded with the finish line on the famous Krynica Promenade. Take a sip of Krynica’s mineral water and you will be ready for another challenge.
