Created in 1987, the park covers the Beskid Sądecki range, which consists of the Radziejowa and Jaworzyna Krynicka mountains separated by the Poprad Valley and the Kraczonika range situated on the side.
Rich in mineral water resources, the region is well developed. A number of health resorts such as Krynica-Zdrój, Muszyna, Piwniczna-Zdrój and Szczawnica serve as the region’s additional attractions. The resorts also provide a perfect base for tourists to explore the scenic mountains ornamented with numerous river gorges. Radziejowa (1262 m asl) is the highest peak of the Beskid Sądecki range. Most mountains do not exceed 1200 m asl. The highland is mainly overgrown with trees – a remnant of the primeval Carpathian Forest. High in the mountains the unforgettable views can be seen from the tower on Radziejowa peak or on the hike to Hala Łabowska (Łabowska Pasture) or Jaworzyna Krynicka peak. The Sądecka land is also an interesting cultural region with dozens of well-preserved Lemko Orthodox churches, among them the Orthodox churches in Andrzejówka, Łosie or Powroźnik. Apart from that, the region is rich in wooden architectural monuments (e.g. the Bee-keeping Museum in Stróże).
