Wilderness in South Poland
Krakow and the Dunajec River Valley

Tour Description: Self-guided

(View Guided )

Many of the most beautiful cycle paths run along river valleys flanked by mountains and hills. These rides, parallel to foaming river waters, are gentle and pleasant and it is not surprising that every year thousands of cyclists follow cycle routes along the Mosel, the Rhine or the Danube. Similar routes can be found in other Alpine countries as well - but are there any in Poland? The answer to that is a resounding 'Yes!' One of these rides follows a spectacular route along the river Dunajec, from Podhale (the plateau at the foot of the High Tatras) to the towns of Stary Sacz and Nowy Sacz - an adventure you can now experience for yourself.

You may have heard of the Dunajec raft trips, one of the earliest attractions in Europe to be organised especially for tourists. The famous, deep gorge of this river forms a natural border between Poland and Slovakia. Following the cessation of border controls a few years ago and with the building of a new suspension bridge this natural wonder finally became accessible to cyclists as well. Other stretches of the Dunajec valley have paths that are just as beautiful taking you past the folk traditions of the Goral and Spisz people.

We invite you to a week-long tour, beginning and ending on a Saturday, with the first and last nights spent in Krakow and five nights in villages and towns in the mountains.
