Palenica is not high, but a charming mountain of Pieniny Małe, located in the immediate vicinity of Szczawnica. It is located in the south of the city, in the Grajcarka valley. Its height is just over 700 m above sea level, but it is enough for practicing various winter sports, for a proper hiking trip and admiring the amazing views.
You can get to the top of Palenica using a cable chairlift. This train starts from the center of the Szczawnica health resort. At the top there is Palenica Ski Station, which consists of two routes of medium and high difficulty level
In addition to the winter period, the Palenica Ski Station is open in summer. Then the fantastic gravity slide from the top of Palenica towards Groń is open.
