CITY TOUR

This is our 'baby!' This tour is what we started with and have been doing for the last 12 years. The best and most enjoyable way of orienting yourself with a new city. The joys of this tour lie not only in what you will discover but also in the simple pleasures of biking through the leafy Planty gardens, along the lazy Vistula river and through the colorful streets of Kazimierz. Despite being extensive, the tour is not strenuous and is suitable for all levels of fitness. There are plenty of stops for historical explanations and photo opportunities. The duration of the bike tour is 4 to 4.5 hours, including a  45min break for lunch at a traditional Polish restaurant where you can order anything from stuffed dumplings to our favorite Żurek (sour wheat soup).

 

Our City Bike Tour begins everyday under the Adam Mickiewicz statue in the main market square. No need for bikes quite yet. We meet first, introduce ourselves and the city before heading off together to equip each of our guests with a beach cruiser of their own.

COUNTRY BIKE TOUR
Book Now!

The country tour takes you along the Vistula river to Tyniec; a small town 12km west of Krakow famous for its 11th century Benedictine abbey.  The abbey played a crucial military role in Poland's Christian restoration and the nation's rebuilding.

 

The tour begins along the Vistula river on a smooth bike path and leads you through southern Poland's picturesque countryside. You will pass through age-old woods, see crumbling forts and cycle past some of the lakes that surround Krakow. Upon arrival at Tyniec, you'll have a chance to explore the ancient grounds, get a snack, take photographs of the scenery and visit the gift shop, which is full products prepared by monks.

 

The essence of the tour is a relaxed, scenic country ride rather than the stop-start nature of our city tour. You will cover a total of 25km (15.5 miles) on a ride lasting nearly four and a half hours. The tour departs in the afternoon and returns in the evening. A backpack is recommended as it will allow you to transport food, water and gifts back from the abbey. Keen photographers take note: the country tour will stop at a point overlooking Krakow and is timed to coincide with the sunset.

OJCOW PARK MTB TOUR
Book Now!

22 KM north of Krakow nestled away in a tiny valley lies Poland's smallest national park. Ojcow, meaning 'father's' park named by one of our King's in homage to his father who based a rebellion from the park.  This area was under seawater during the mesozoic period and as a result today it is blessed with wondrous geological formations made thanks to its prehistoric sea. You will not believe how much of a contrast this scenery is to the historic nature of Krakow, not to say that Ojców does not have a history of its own.  Along the way we will get to explore the XIV century castle that belonged to 'The Eagle's Nests'; a string of castles and fortresses used to guard the medieval trading routes. Although this tour is not technically difficult, we do cover 56Km and a high level of fitness is required, but we assure you at least your eyes wont get tired.

ROAD RACE
Book Now!

Your first impression of Krakow may be similar to what mine was 9 years ago; this is a beautiful city but I wouldn't want to ride a road bike through its streets. Road biking is not for Krakow's city center but rather for Krakow's surrounding valleys. There are many beautiful country roads that wind up and down through the many valleys surrounding Krakow that are just wonderful to burn rubber through. Our road bike trips are for the keen cyclists who want to break a sweat while enjoying the countryside. Thanks to 'greenways', a network of bike routes in Poland, Slovakia, and the Czech republic, this route has become a recognized bike path that is safe to ride at high velocities.

Eagles' Nests
Book Now!

'The Eagles' Nests' get their name from the string of fortresses and castles that run along the ridge from Krakow to Czestochowa.  These structures were built high atop limestone cliffs that make it difficult to capture and easy to defend similar to that of an eagle's nest.  Our bike tour takes you to see six of those castles, some in ruins while others newly restored.  Not only will this be a historically interesting bike ride but the geography make it a challenging and picturesque journey. With three days of biking and a one day visit to 'Bright Mountain,' in Czestochowa, home of the Black Madonna, this is a ride through the wondrous valleys of southern Poland to the holiest site in our country; the Pauline Monastery of Czestochowa.  This trip includes three nights accommodation with one spa day,  breakfasts, MTB bike rental, health insurance, and a guide. Vehicle support will be available on-call. We will be biking 50-65Km daily and averaging 450 meters of climbing.   Don't miss this annual opportunity to see a side of Poland you never imagined existed.
