About this sleigh ride
Being in winter in Zakopane, you have to go on a real highland sleigh ride with fun, dances and highland atmosphere. We invite you to traditional sleigh ride around the Chocholowska Valley, the longest valley in the Tatra Mountains and one of the most beautiful in Europe. Sleigh rides in Chocholowska are a real adventure in the Tatra Valley, mountains around us and winter scenery straight from a fairy tale — stars in the sky, snowy and the silence of the valley – there are no cars, street lamps and city noise. Traditionally, after the sleigh ride, we invite everyone to a 2-hour feast by the fire, with tasty refreshments and dances to the highland note. It is an offer for those who appreciate high quality and great service.
PROGRAM – a sleigh ride in the Chocholowska Valley. On the edge of the valley our staff will be waiting for the participants, they will welcome the guests by inviting them to take places in the sleigh. They will provide to every sleigh a good treat, after which you will go on an hour-long ride through the Chocholowska Valley. After the sleigh ride, we invite everyone to the bonfire, where we will have highland party. During the whole event a highland band will play and the participants will be entertained with jokes and stories about the Tatras and highlanders. In the program:
• Witacka, which means greeting our guests with highland warmth and music,
• Highland dance shows,
• Highland tales,
• Learning how to drink in highland style – a booze snack,
• Singing by the fire together!
DANCES AND GOOD FUN will be provided by highlanders. The sleigh ride will be held under the slogan “tradition, fun, dance and highland music” – you have to be there! The bonfire will be lit during the whole event, and catering service will serve delicacies of traditional cuisine. After two hours of fun, with great regret, we will end the event and return to Zakopane. We provide, if necessary, transfer by bus from Zakopane to Chocholowska and return to Zakopane after the party.
