A hike through the National Park Karkonoski in the south of Poland. We?ve yet to go, but our friends the Oranginas walking group from the Netherlands have been and say:

"In Czech Krkonose. Karpacz is situated at the foot of the Snezka (1602 m.). Our route followed partly the old customs-road (or Roman road) along paths full of snow, mountain sides with high winds, but also fantastic views, impressive, rough rocks masses and possibilities to have a quick lunch at the Czech site of the mountains."

THANK YOU ORANGINAS! See their full thoughts on their site. They have some great recommendations for accommodation, maps, etc.
