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.Please note: This relaxed bike tour covers a distance of approximately 15 miles (24 km) and is suitable for riders with a moderate level of fitness.
