Overview

Holiday Highlights

Krakow, the former capital of Poland and its second-largest city, is beautiful and vibrant, full of history and culture. Its historic monuments and buildings avoided damage during WWII, leaving the city’s architecture standing for adoration today. 

Krakow is included on the first UNESCO World Heritage list and its enchanting old town is home to the largest square in Europe. You’ll find history is abundant in the 13th-century buildings which decorate the streets as well as diverse structures from the Gothic, Renaissance, Baroque and Art Nouveau periods. 

Our holiday explores the city on foot. A local Blue Badge Guide will introduce us to Krakow, and we'll spend an afternoon sampling classic vodka, traditional tapas and delicious pierogi. Beautiful trails will lead us through the picturesque Ojcow National Park and we’ll visit the legendary Wieliczka Salt Mines.

The 3 day Krakow Tourist Card is included in the cost of the holiday and provides free travel on local transport and admissions into many attractions.  After exploring Wawel Hill, you may choose to spend your free time exploring the Wawel castle or soak up some culture with contemporary art at The Gologorski Gallery. 

We have time for some free time for leisure and shopping in Krakow. If you wish to extend your holiday in Krakow then please advise our Sales and Reservations department at the time of booking. There are lots of excursions to Auschwitz Birkenau that you can book independently if you wish to extend your holiday.

This afternoon you can explore Krakow independently. You may wish to explore the inside of Wawel Royal Castle or the Jagiellonian University Botanic Gardens, or perhaps use your Krakow Card to explore various museums and sites. 

Late afternoon we’ll enjoy a tour with a difference! A local guide will take us on an adventure through the UNESCO world heritage old town of Krakow where we’ll explore hidden bars and cafes. We’ll try a variety of clear and flavoured homemade vodkas, some traditional and some modern, whilst learning about the history of Krakow and its vodka. We’ll enjoy sweet and sour homemade Pierogi (polish dumplings) in addition to Polish style tapas including crusty bread, smoked cheeses, Polish cheddar, local sausages, pickles, and crackers. Our guide will share a variety of recommendations with us, including places to see, restaurants to visit, local delicacies to try and souvenirs to buy.

A guide will take us along the tourist route where we’ll learn about its history, the mining tools and machines used and the methods to extract salt. Wooden walkways, stairways and paved tunnels will take us to mysterious underground lakes and cathedrals, including St Kinga’s chapel, the largest underground cathedral in the world. It took 30 years to build and everything is made from salt, including the statues, magnificent chandeliers and floors. Please note that we will be an ascent/descent of 800 steps.

Perhaps visit various cafes and restaurants serving pierogi! 

The Living Museum of  Obwarzanka creates an interactive presentation of the history and tradition of Obwarzanek, a Polish bagel. 

There are a variety of museums and places to view beautiful stained glass throughout Krakow, definitely something to look out for if you are interested in art.

Entry Requirements

General Passport Advice

It is a good idea to carry photocopies of the personal details pages of your passport. Should you lose your passport, this may assist with the issue of replacement documents and your return to your home country.

Passport and visa requirements can change at any time. It is your own responsibility to ensure that you inform yourself from a professionally qualified source on, and comply with, such requirements.

General passport advice for UK nationals on the UK Government website.

FCDO Travel Advice

You must ensure you check all entry requirements in good time by reviewing the official FCDO advice for your destination. Please take time to read and regularly check this website for changes to the entry requirements and any local restrictions.

Proof of Covid-19 Vaccination

You may be required to provide proof that you have been fully vaccinated when travelling or in your destination. Proof of vaccination can either be digital via the NHS app or a printed copy via NHS Hard Copy. We recommend allowing seven working days for your printed copy to arrive. Please note both the NHS app and printed copy are only valid for 30 days.

We anticipate that all travellers will need to be fully vaccinated including the booster jab and to carry proof of this with them at all times. Some indoor venues require, and may ask for proof of vaccination, as well as masks becoming mandatory for indoor public spaces, and we ask you to be prepared for this.

Face Masks

Some airlines or destinations are requiring the wearing of FFP2, FFP3, KN95 or N95 masks without a valve. You should check the FCDO advice for your destination and with your airline before you travel, although you may wish to have one of these masks on hand just in case.

Brexit Passport Advice

If you are planning to travel to an EU country (except Ireland), or Switzerland, Norway, Iceland, Liechtenstein, Andorra, Monaco, San Marino or Vatican City, you must meet the Schengen area rules.

Your passport must meet 2 requirements. It must be:

  • less than 10 years old on the day you enter (check the ‘date of issue’)
  • valid for at least 3 months after the day you plan to leave (check the ‘expiry date’)

The guidance for Schengen border guards may not be updated until the spring of 2022. Until then, for some Schengen countries your passport may need to be less than 10 years old during your whole visit, and the 3 months at the end of your visit may need to be within 10 years of your passport’s issue date.

Check both the issue date and the expiry date in your passport. If you renewed your passport early, extra months may have been added to its expiry date. This could affect the requirement for your passport to be less than 10 years old.

Non British Passport holders should consult the host country’s embassy for applicable passport and visa entry requirements.

Meals

Four breakfasts and three dinners are included in the price of the holiday. 

We enjoy a buffet breakfast with hot and cold dishes. Dinners are taken in local restaurants where we can enjoy an authentic experience and sometimes lively atmosphere.

Dinner is not included on the evening of the Vodka tasting tour as we enjoy a small selection of Polish Tapas and traditional dumplings known as Pierogi. If you decide you are still hungry then you can explore Krakow and its local restaurants independently. 

A Polish diet is rich in protein and meat, with vegetables and lots of carbohydrates such as bread, potatoes and dumplings. Poland is also very well known for its various flavours of homemade traditional soup. 

Lunches are not included in the holiday cost and can be purchased at local cafes and supermarkets. 

Footwear & Kit List

Footwear

Good quality waterproof walking shoes or trail shoes with a thick, moulded sole with a good tread and a low heel are likely to be all that is required for these holidays. If you are a frequent walker and are comfortable in good quality hiking sandals, these may be adequate for some walks. You can wear lightweight walking boots if you prefer.

General Kit List

Outdoor activities are always safer and more enjoyable if you are prepared.

If you have not travelled with us before the following list might be of use:

  • Waterproof jacket (Goretex or similar) and trousers
  • Fleece or jumper

Further Travel Advice

For further advice please visit:

You might wish to take a small bottle of antibacterial hand gel with you for times when you're unable to wash your hands.

Travel Insurance

It is a condition of booking with Ramblers Walking Holidays that you have adequate valid travel insurance. It is your responsibility to arrange appropriate travel insurance and ensure you have read and understood the full terms and conditions of your travel insurance policy to ensure that you are covered for all activities you intend to undertake whilst on the trip, including all optional activities.

Your travel insurance policy must fully cover you for medical expenses and emergency repatriation. Please ensure your policy covers the entire duration of your holiday. If you are walking at altitude please ensure that there is no upper altitude limit which may limit or exclude cover for your trip. Medical and repatriation insurance cover are not mandatory for UK residents who are travelling on trips within the United Kingdom.

Whoever you insure with, please ensure that you take full details, and ideally the policy itself, with you on holiday and provide our tour leader with your insurer's name, the policy number and emergency assistance contact numbers.

Please note that it is very difficult to obtain travel insurance once your holiday arrangements have started.

Covid-19 Cover

If you should have symptoms and test positive for Covid-19 whilst abroad, you may need to stay where you are until you test negative and you may have to seek treatment. We strongly recommend that you take out an insurance policy that covers you for this eventuality.

Looking for travel insurance?

If you have not already arranged cover, please visit SunWorld who offer travel insurance.

SunWorld policies include cover for COVID-19, subject to applicable terms and conditions.

EHIC & GHIC Cards

From January 1st, 2021 UK travellers can continue to use their European Heath Insurance Card (EHIC) – which can last up to five years, until its expiry date, to gain access to medical assistance during your holiday. However, you will no longer be covered in Iceland, Liechtenstein, Norway or Switzerland. Travellers without a valid EHIC can apply for a new UK Global Health Insurance Card (GHIC), which will replaces the EHIC once it has been phased out. Please note however that the EHIC/GHIC should not be considered a substitute for medical or travel insurance.

For more information, please visit www.nhs.uk/ehic

Personal Safety

The UK Foreign, Commonwealth & Development Office provides up to date information on security and local laws for travellers, together with current passport and visa information, at www.gov.uk/travelaware. Please take a few minutes to look at the current advice on your planned destination.

Please be aware of what's going on around you, take sensible precautions with your credit cards and passport and avoid displays of wealth such as wearing expensive jewellery or watches. Do not carry more cash on you than you will need for each day, and we recommend that a money belt is used.

Cultural Awareness

Responsible Travel

We're committed to ethical tourism in all our destinations. Our holidays are designed for you to discover the essence of the country you are visiting. Travelling in small groups not only gives you an up close and personal experience of your destination, but minimises your impact on the immediate environment. We feel that the most important starting point to protect the environment is to be out in it. For more details visit our website.

The Ramblers Holidays Charitable Trust

Unlike many tour operators we have our own trust through which RWH Travel’s profits are channelled back into a variety of outdoor, walking-related or environmental conservation projects in the UK. The focus of the Trust’s financial support is Britain’s leading walking charity, The Ramblers, and their role in promoting the benefits and importance of walking to the British public. In addition the Trust welcomes applications for small grants from local organisations in the UK who need support for walking-orientated activities. This includes the establishment of footpaths and bridleways, funding for rebuilding bridges and renovating huts, as well as bursary funding for the Duke of Edinburgh’s Award for children who could not otherwise afford to do it. Please visit the ‘About Us’ section of our website and click on the Charitable Trust link for more details.

Heart and Sole

We appreciate that we are in a fortunate position to be able to use our profits to help make a difference to people's lives. Heart & Sole is a venture managed by our office staff, whose aim is to reach the heart of the communities in the countries we visit. Through Heart & Sole, we hope to make more of a long term, direct impact to these communities, particularly in less developed countries where even a small amount goes a long way. See our website for more information and details of some of the projects we support.

Staying In Touch

Mobile Phones

Please do provide us with a mobile phone contact number. We will only use this to contact you with important information relating to your holiday arrangements. 

Do keep your mobile phones switched on and readily available when travelling to the airport or if delayed in transit so that we can contact you with any last minute information relating to your travel arrangements.  

As a matter of courtesy, please switch off your mobile phone during walks, or endeavour to minimise its use. Please also try to minimise the use of mobile devices during group meals.
