Indian Village in Szczyrzyc is situated in an old orchard in the Beskids, in an area protected under the Natura 2000 programme. The location of this place makes it easy to relax away from the hustle and bustle of the city, all while having quick access to the most interesting attractions in Małopolska.

The Indian village features full-scale, painted and fully equipped tepees, an enormous tio-teepee, which can accommodate up to 50 people, a couple's hut (Indian sauna), war lodge – a special war tent, as well as an exhibition of handicrafts of plains Indians - faithful replicas of Indian costumes from 200 years ago, made of thousands of beads: war shirts, tomahawks, rawhide bags… and many other things.

The visitors can learn about life in an Indian village, see a warrior smoking the sacred pipe, discover how women prepared hides and see the poignant scene of the warrior's funeral. You can also shoot a genuine Indian bow on a range and take part in many additional workshops, including music and handicrafts, Indian cuisine, and face painting, as well as participate in original games.

When you decide to pay a visit to the village, you need to choose one of the options from the programme – each of which can run from about 1.5 hours to as many as several days. In the case of inclement weather, all workshops are held in a heated room with seating, a stage with lighting, sound system and multimedia equipment.

You can also get a stylised photograph as a souvenir of your stay in the Indian Village.

There is a village shop with souvenirs, ethnic instruments, albums with ethnic music (including Indian music) and organic products from the Eco Farm.
