Bicycle Tour

There are few better ways to take in the many charms of Krakow than by bike, thanks to the city’s many cycling paths and a largely pedestrianised Old Town. On this amazing bike tour you’ll take in far more of the city than you thought possible in one day, and have a lot more fun than you would exploring the city by foot.

To begin with you’ll be equipped with an easy-to-ride, funky beachcruiser bike (which will make you the envy of Krakow’s two-wheeled community!) and then, saddled up and raring to go, you’ll be led off by your knowledgeable and friendly guide to discover the city. Amongst the many treasures you will uncover are the breath-taking Main Market Square, with its iconic St. Mary’s Basilica and Cloth Hall; Wawel Castle and her resident dragon; the majestic buildings of Jagiellonian University; the Jewish Quarter and many other important sites such as the famous window from which John Paul II spoke to his people and of course Schindler’s Factory in Podgorze.

The joys of this tour lie not only in what you will discover but also in the simple pleasures of biking through the leafy Planty gardens, along the lazy Wisla river and through the quiet streets of Kazimierz. Despite being extensive the tour is not strenuous and is suitable for virtually all levels of fitness. There are plenty of breaks for explanations and photo opportunities. The duration of the bike tour is 4.5 hours.

Country Bike Tour

If you’ve seen all the major sights of Krakow (maybe you took our city bike tour!) then this afternoon bike ride is one for you. A chance to get out of the city and explore some of the surrounding countryside with the freedom that only two wheels brings!

The chief destination of this tour is the beautiful Tyniec Abbey, which rises majestically atop of wooded hills just 11km from Krakow. Your private guide will lead you there via riverside cycling paths, and along the way you’ll have the chance to admire some lovely landscapes as well as a smattering of fortresses and palaces. Once you arrive at the ancient monastery itself (its origins date back to the 10th century) you’ll see architectural marvels from Renaissance times and hear Benedictine monks chant the liturgy of the hours.

Once your limbs are suitably rested, you’ll start homeward bound through the Tyniec woods, for a more intimate adventure in the Polish countryside. Hidden behind bushes and trees you’ll even discover an old Austrian fortress frozen in time. Around this point of the tour the sun will slowly be setting, indicating that it’s time to get out your cameras out for a superb shot of the cliffs of the wizard Sir Twardowski. Not long ago these rocks were a quarry, where Pope John Paul II himself worked as a miner; but today, filled with water, the site is a beautiful, hidden lake for swimming, sunbathing, scuba diving and rock climbing. From this breathtaking vantage point there’ll just be time to watch the sun setting over Krakow before scooting back home on your faithful beachcruiser bike, ready to explore the city’s legendary nightlife.

We had a fantastic and interesting tour through the surrounding countryside of Krakow. Mike was full of information and interesting anecdotes and showed us a side of Poland we wouldn't have otherwise seen. Cycling along the river was beautiful as was the sunset overlooking the quarry towards the end of the tour.....We would thoroughly recommend the countryside tour to anyone visiting Krakow.
