Begin your tour in central Krakow, where you’ll join up with your guide, slip on your helmet and hop on your bike. Follow your guide through the city streets, passing Pope John Paul II’s former residence and traveling along the Vistula River into the countryside.

Purchase snacks at a riverside cafe and recharge before pedaling up to Poland's oldest functioning monastery, Tyniec Abbey. Learn about the daily rituals of the monks as you wander the church and museum, and hear the history of 11th-century structure. Afterward, enjoy some time to peruse the shop, filled with treats crafted by the monks, including wine, oils, teas and more.

Cycle through the Wolski Forest, pausing to explore the ruins of a hillside fortress. Conclude your excursion at a scenic lake ringed by cliffs, the site of a former quarry where John Paul II worked during Poland’s Nazi occupation. Capture the sunset views of Krakow from the clifftops before returning to your original departure point.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended April 2016

After 4 nights in Krakow we were looking for something a little different to fill our last day as we had a late flight home. The trip turned out to be much more than just a filler, almost the highlight of the holiday.
Our guide was great, professional but fun. Bikes were good quality and the route along the river out of town towards the Abbey was picturesque and easy going. Coming back slightly harder, just a couple of hills but worth it to do a circular and see parts of modern Krakow that generally the average visitor to Krakow wouldn't see.
