Winter entertainment lovers will be delighted. This is what the recently opened “Land of the Sleeping Volcano” looks like in Małopolska.
December is a great time for tourists looking for new experiences in the Polish mountains. The beginning of the season means the start of many new investments. We have just announced the opening of the observation tower, from which you can simultaneously admire the view of the Tatra Mountains, Beskids and Bieszczady Mountains, and the Lesser Poland Voivodeship has already surprised us with another surprise. A modern chairlift has been opened in a unique place on the map of Poland.
Cable car to Wdżar Mountain
“Land of the Sleeping Volcano” is a year-round tourist attraction on Lake Czorsztyn, the expansion program of which has been divided into several stages. The opening of the chairlift to the top of Mount Wdżar marks the completion of the third part of works in the picturesque area of the town and the Czorsztyn castle. The upper station of the ski lift is located at 761.4 m above sea level, and the length of the entire slope route is 512.3 meters.
“The four-seater cableway was created thanks to cooperation with the Marshal’s Office of the Małopolska Voivodeship and funding obtained by the company from the European Regional Development Fund,” we read on the official profile of CzorsztynSKI Kluszkowce. The investment cost was approximately PLN 12 million. The lift has 67 chairs and its capacity is up to 2,400 people per hour, which will help significantly shorten queues on the slopes. The chairs are available to tourists from Monday, December 18.
A one-day ski pass at the CzorsztynSKI resort in Kluszkowice costs from PLN 125 to PLN 245 per person. The cost may vary slightly depending on the part of the season in which we decide to go on a ski trip and the package of services included in the price. The upcoming Christmas and New Year’s Eve are definitely the most expensive dates of the year
