Let’s burn some winter calories and get a bit active with one of the easiest and most popular sports – cycling.
After winter we are all craving for some outdoor activities and biking is the first thing that comes to our mind. Poland maybe isn’t the most obvious destination for biking trips, but we can assure you that it is definitely worth a try. Thanks to the incredibly diverse areas (mountains, fields, forest and beaches) you can choose the right environment to your abilities. Even cycling in big cities is getting much easier and safer. But if you want to enjoy a whole day trip or even a weekend we recommend you 4 tours, which will definitely satisfy your expectations. However, it is important to remember that Poland has thousands of stunning routes to explore.
Not many know that in Poland we have a desert – Błędowska Desert! The tour has 26 km through this unusual environment. On the way tourist can also admire an old wooden church from 15thcentury and some giant, natural curved rocks. At the end of the trip, you get a great reward which is Czubatka – marvelous view point on the entire desert.
“Land of 100 lakes” sounds magical and it surely is. On a distance of 99 km you can sightsee not only lakes but also a lot of monuments. This trip is very convenient for these of you who will combine it with a visit in Poznań, because here it starts, next to Lake Malta. On the way among all the lakes, you will be able to see Górków Castle and the first printing house in Wielkopolska. Worth a stop is also Sierakowski Landscape park neighboring with the oldest stable of hot-blooded horses in Poland.
The third tour we recommend is for Pros, but the monuments and views on the way are definitely worth the effort. The trip contains 83 km of mountainous areas, some even up to 600m. This district is a land formerly inhabited by the Lemkos, where you can visit numerous ancient churches: the Greek Catholic church, orthodox church of Saint. Paraskeva, Orthodox church. Nativity of the Mother of God. The entire route begins in Gorlice and ends in the magical Dukla.
Beside these 3 nice tours, we have in Poland something we can be very proud of – Green Velo route, it is almost 2000 km long and runs through 5 voivodeships in the eastern part of the country. Thanks to the uniqueness and diversity from each district every tourist will find something for him. The route combines beautiful views, stunning landscapes and historic monuments along with Polish cultural heritage. We are able to visit 5 national parks, 15 landscape parks, 26 special protection areas for birds and 36 special areas of conservation. It’s an absolutely marvelous adventure and a great way to discover Poland. Using the website greenvelo.pl you can easily plan a route tailored to your needs and ability.
