Overview
Saddle up and explore the stunning Krakow countryside on a 4-hour, guided bike tour. Set out at a relaxed pace as you head past Pope John Paul II's old residence and take in the fresh air along the Vistula River. Then, pull over for a stop at the Tyniec Abbey, dating back to the 11th century. Check out the museum, discover the interior of the church and shop for souvenir goodies made by the monks themselves as you learn the history of the abbey from your guide.
What to Expect
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.
