The Polish zloty has continually weakened against sterling over the last three months, meaning an already cheap destination is even better value for Brits this season. Zakopane, Poland’s winter capital and largest ski resort, is located in the Tatras Mountains – part of the Carpathian range. The area is made up of 14 separate ski zones which offer around 50 lifts in total. As a popular holiday destination for Poles, nightlife is busy, with plenty of après action.
Seven nights’ half-board accommodation at a traditional chalet costs from £175pp with Sunshine World. Lift passes must be purchased separately each time you take a lift; 10 rides on the Kasprowy Wierch cable car costs £15.50. Fly to Krakow with easyJet. Transfer time from Krakow to Zakopane around two hours
