This tour is for those that can only spend half a day on a bike. The Wolski forest is minutes away from the old town and is equipped with numerous trails for every level of mountain biker. On this tour the historical attractions are the mounds of Tadeusz Kościuzko and Joseph Piłsudski, two of Polands independence fighters. The mounds were built by citizens in homage to these famous war heroes. Our guide will choose your descent based on your riding level; whether its advanced single track riding to wide forest path cruising. These mounds are nestled in the Wolski natural reserve: 417 hectares of forest full of trails ranging from intermediate, to Poland's first official advanced single track.

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 this 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.
Your first impression of Krakow might be similar to what mine were 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.
