The Loop is a complete tourist product integrated with a chain of mountain hostels, entirely based on Polish Tourist and Sightseeing Society’s (PTTK) trails. It is an ambitious route that puts to use existing trails in the Żywiec, Silesian and Little Beskids. In order to complete it, one must cross almost 250 kilometers with a total elevation gain exceeding 11.000 meters. We believe The Loop will soon join the list of well-known trails such as West Highland Way in Scotland and GR 20 in Corsica, which is considered the hardest mountain trail in Europe.

The trail is designed based on the premise that one should be able to cross it during a two-week vacation and have access to neat accommodations. A characteristic feature of The Loop is that, as the name indicates, the trail starts and ends in the same place. In our version it is a glade by the Dębowiec, a mountain located within the administrative lines of Bielsko-Biała. The route can be crossed all at one or divided into smaller sections. It’s up to you to decide where you enter the trail end where you leave. Importantly, the adventurers who manage to pass the entire route will be rewarded with attractive souvenirs.

The design of The Loop is also based on flexibility. We don’t enforce a way of crossing the trail and don’t mark certain tracks. We talk about advised marked trails of Polish Tourist and Sightseeing Society, that connect selected points into a whole.
