A fine array of hiking trails run to the mountain tops, to crystal clear mountain lakes, wondrous waterfalls, valleys and caves. Mountain-bikers can choose from several well marked bike trails. The trail connecting the town of Zakopane with the mountain lake Morskie Oko is 66 kilometres long both ways.

Zakopane itself is the most significant winter sports resort in Poland. In the past, numerous international sports events took place here, for example, the world championships in ski-jumps, world championships in biathlon or world cup in slalom. Ski trails of various difficulty levels await skiers.
