Szczyrk for the active – summer proposals for those who want to stay in motion
1. Mountain hiking
The surroundings of Szczyrk are ideal for those who want to take care of their condition. In the plan of their stay, not to miss a trip (7.9 km) from the Salmopol Pass to Skrzyczne – the highest peak of the Silesian Beskid at 1257 m. To the top is a red trail we recommend, and then a green one from the Salmopol Pass (White Cross). Although slightly longer than the others, this one offers extremely picturesque views. The hardships of the hike will be rewarded for fans of active recreation by the panoramic view of the Silesian Beskid, the Zywiec Beskid, the Tatra Mountains. Both Polish and Slovak and even Mala Fatra.

This is unique for the region and the country complex of one-way singletrack bike paths. The keen cyclists have at their disposal specially profiled trails – with the proper slope, space to slow down, and berms to make tight turns easier.
