Poland and its remarkably restored cities of Warsaw and Krakow are celebrated for their rich history. A VBT Poland bike tour reveals a treasure trove of natural beauty as well. Cycling among the nation’s shimmering lakes and rivers, flat emerald pastures, and soaring mountain peaks opens doorway into the seldom visited rural reaches of Poland, where sprawling orchards offer fresh fruits and medieval villages proudly produce an ample supply of crystal-clear vodka and glistening mead. With a storied past and a vibrant present, Poland is simply unforgettable.
Poland is an invigorating surprise for cyclists. Scenic, leisurely bike routes trace the lush banks of the Vistula River, leading to a rustic countryside that’s been called the “Tuscany of Poland.” Emerald fields play host to a seemingly endless panoply of orchards, where cherries, peaches, and apples blossom. In the sylvan, fairytale landscape of the Niepolomice Forest, where stately bison roam free, nature reserves offer unspoiled vistas and magnificent wildlife.
In and out of the saddle, your VBT Trip Leaders reveal the many fascinating faces of the country they know and love. Stroll the charming gallery-lined streets of 16th-century Kazimierz Dolny and descend into the otherworldly Wieliczka Salt Mines, a UNESCO World Heritage Site boasting the nation’s beloved Underground Cathedral. Take in Frederic Chopin’s hometown of Warsaw, risen from World War II ashes. Experience Krakow’s colorful Old Town by horse and buggy.
Our VBT Poland bike tour takes you deep into local culture and history, whether you’re ferrying across a lake to a 16th-century castle or lunching in a late-baroque palace … selecting your picnic fixings from a farmer’s market or indulging in tastings of local vodka and mead. You’ll even try your hand at preparing a favorite Polish dessert.
At the close of each day, deluxe accommodations offer warm welcomes and opportunities to indulge. From a 17th-century hotel with its own Turkish and Finnish saunas to a family-owned inn with a delightful summer garden, you’ll find your lodgings as enchanting as your cycling routes. No doubt, you’ll want to raise a tumbler of local mead to the many pleasures of Poland.
