We are planning to walk along the Beskidy Red route from around rabka towards dunajec in late September/early October and stay in mountain PTTKs. Is it necessary to book ahead? Do we need to take bedding? Do they serve breakfast(I know they have main meals etc). is there anything else we should know? Thanks!

and stay in mountain PTTKs.

Great idea.

Is it necessary to book ahead?

Nope. They will always accomodate you, even in the kitchen, so in the morning you will have to pack your stuff up to make room for cooks. :):):)

But don`t worry, the time you want to hike isn`t as busy as summer.

Do we need to take bedding?

A sleeping bag and a foam mattress is a must in some shelters. You need to check out beforehand.

Do they serve breakfast(I know they have main meals etc)

If you wish and pay, they do.

Thank you to both of you - that is really helpful. We are coming Ryanair (only hand luggage) - we can each probably fit in a sleeping bag but may need to buy a bedroll in Krakow. How much might we pay - and can anyone suggest a good shop to buy from?

I am sure you know Decathlon chain store.

There are two in Krakow: Plaza and Zakopianka

Put in google: decathlon krakow
