Poronin - panoramic sleigh ride in Zakopane
Poronin is a picturesque village in the southern part of the Małopolskie Voivodeship, in the Tatra County, within the Poronin municipality. Integral parts of this recreational destination are Jesionkówka and Kośne Hamry, as well as two hamlets: Majerczykówka and Stasikówka. Its location at the confluence of two mountain streams, Porońiec and Zakopianka, and at the foot of the Tatra Mountains at an altitude of 740-800 meters above sea level, adds to its attractiveness.
Due to its location, Poronin offers not only recreational opportunities but also beautiful views of the Tatra Mountains. Between the Misiagi housing estate and Jesionkówka, there are vast open fields from which you can admire the panorama of the Tatras. It is precisely in those areas that our sleigh ride route takes place. This place is worth visiting at any time of the year. It is a great area for walking, mountain biking, and in winter, you can go cross-country skiing or participate in our sleigh ride.
