Itinerary

Sat, Jun 6 to Mon, Jun 15 - 2020

Show Itinerary:

Depart from home for Poland. The particulars of your arrival overseas are detailed with your flight itinerary.

Upon arrival at the Warsaw Airport, claim your luggage and clear customs. VBT’s local representative will meet you outside the customs area in your arrival terminal and will be holding a VBT sign. Your representative will help you transfer by private car or van to your hotel in Warsaw’s city center (approximately 30 minutes). The rest of the day is free for you to settle in and explore the city. Choose a restaurant for dinner on your own.

Please note: If you arrive early, your hotel room may not be available until after 2:00 p.m. You may store your luggage with the reception desk. If you are traveling from the west coast, your arrival in Warsaw may not be until late in the evening.

Your hotel is conveniently located in Warsaw’s Old Town. Depending on your arrival time, you can stroll along the many cobblestone streets and explore the most beautiful part of the city.

VBT provides you with City Information that includes information and recommendations on what to see and do in Warsaw during your stay.

Hotel: Mamaison Hotel Le Regina Warsaw

Meet the VBT representative in the hotel lobby at 8:00 a.m. for the transfer to Pulawy (approximately 2.5 hours, including a stop on the way). Make sure your luggage is tagged with VBT yellow tags. Meet your Trip Leaders upon arrival in Pulawy. Please be dressed in cycling clothes and ready for biking.

Your trip leaders will spearhead your Poland guided tour with a safety and bike-fitting session followed by an easy warm-up ride through some Polish “allotment gardens.” These allotment gardens are a reflection of Poland’s agrarian past and efforts to move rural labor into urban settings to meet the city residents’ basic needs. Polish allotment gardeners represent the largest land users in Poland. You’ll then join the bike path along the banks of the Vistula River. The Vistula was at one time connected to the Dnieper River, creating an important trade route known as the “Amber Road,” connecting the Black Sea to the Baltic. As you will see throughout your journey this week, the Polish people now use the Vistula River mostly for recreational purposes.

Afterward, you will shuttle to the nearby quaint riverside artist village of Kazimierz Dolny, where you can take time for a late lunch on your own.

Tonight, get to know your fellow travelers over a welcome cocktail, followed by dinner at the hotel.

Morning
Warm-Up Ride Pulaway: 14.5 km (9 miles)

What to Expect: This easy warm-up loop ride takes you to a beautiful viewpoint of Poland’s most important river, the Vistula. You will also be guided through examples of Polish allotment gardens.

After breakfast this morning, walk with your trip leaders to the town square, where you’ll shop for today’s picnic at the weekly farmers’ market. You can choose from an array of fresh fruits and vegetables in season and browse numerous stalls of antiques, paintings, and souvenirs. From here, you’ll enjoy a scenic ride along the Vistula River to a small ferry, which will transport you to the opposite bank, where you’ll cycle to the nearby ruins of the 16th-century Janowiec Castle. After a short visit at your leisure, join your trip leaders for a picnic lunch on the castle’s lawn.

The afternoon is yours to experience the beautiful countryside by bike. If you prefer, return to the hotel to enjoy the pool and spa or to explore the charming streets of Kazimierz Dolny. Later, learn more about this quaint village and its history and folklore during a unique tour.

This evening, dinner is on your own. Among your options is a unique, Jewish-themed tavern that serves old-fashioned cooking with a kosher twist.

After a morning spin, you’ll stop for lunch at one of the most beautiful residences in Poland, a richly ornamented, late-Baroque palace built in the mid-18th century. After lunch, ride to your hotel, located just outside the 14th-century gates of Opatowska—entrance to the picturesque town of Sandomierz.

Sandomierz’ location on the banks of the Vistula River made it a prominent town on the medieval trade route that ran from the Middle East through southern Russia and Ukraine and on into central Europe.

This afternoon, you may continue cycling these lovely roads, relax at your hotel, or at a café in town.

The forest consists of six nature reserves; the largest is home to the European bison.

After your easy ride, you’ll arrive in the lovely town of Niepolomice for lunch on your own and the option to visit the Niepolomice Royal Castle.
