A unique peak, in a unique area. Góra Żar is a place where you can spend time actively, admire the views, relax and learn physics in practice.
In winter, attractive ski pistes are available here, attracting entire families. You can try your hand at the slalom (with measured time) and take part in sports competitions. Skiers and tourists are transported to the top via a comfortable cableway with a high capacity (1200 people per hour).
Summer on Góra Żar is the time of bikers, tourists and majestic white gliders flying high in the sky. It is here that the airport of the Mountain Gliding School is located, where both future pilots and experienced aviators train.
The peak is also a dream place for tourists. You can visit the Pumped Storage Power Plant in Porąbka-Żar located there with a tour guide, and then take one of the Beskidy trails. The trails are easy, and walking among the soaring beeches and the singing of birds helps to forget about one’s troubles and recharge one’s batteries.
Bikers can also start to warm up their muscles. Several mountain biking trails have been marked out on the slopes of Góra Żar. Each of them has a different degree of difficulty. Thanks to this, the hops and bridges will satisfy both those who are just taking their first steps in this sport, as well as experienced downhill bikers.
The lower station offers one more unique attraction: a pontoon slide. Remember how you used to slide down on a tire when you were young? Now you can feel the thrill again! And share them with your kids.
Tired of attractions, you will gladly eat something tasty at a restaurant overlooking the gentle ridges of the Beskids and two sun-shining lakes at the foot of Żar.
Do you want to break away from the city, go skiing, roam the mountains? Come visit Żar!
