Refuel with snacks (own expense) at a riverside cafe, and cycle up to Tyniec Abbey, a Benedictine retreat above the Vistula that is Poland’s oldest working monastery. Head inside to explore the museum and church, and learn about the monks’ daily lives. Browse the shop and perhaps buy some products (own expense) that have been made by the monks.
Continue through farming villages and peaceful Wolski Forest and, after inspecting a ruined hillside fortress, descend back to Krakow.

  • The countryside tour was definitely one of the highlights of our trip to Krakow. A great way to get out of the hustle and bustle of the Old Town and experience a taste of the countryside. Arriving at the monastery near sun set also provided the most beautiful light for photos. We now feel like we can now venture out on our own on bikes and explore the further away places...just follow the paths!!
    The tour guide was really helpful and provided relevant historical information of the areas we visited in a relaxed manner.

  • Loved loved loved this tour. A true change of pace with beautiful scenery, a well-paced ride, and a great guide who was patient with my creative mediocre skills and very good about explaining the next section of the path so that I was never caught off guard by a sudden turn or change of pitch. Would do it again in a heartbeat. Thanks, Mike!

  • The biking was enjoyable and primarily on designated bike paths. We stopped a few times and the Abby was worth seeing. The leader was very good and didn't interject needless stories and chatter as some tour leaders do.

  • Our bike tour with Mike was incredible. Loved the scenery, stories, and history. This combined many of our favorite things to do and added a great memory to our vacation. Cruising Kracow is a great company to tour with and I would use them again! Thank you Mike.

  • What a great tour! Enjoyed every minute of it. Beautiful!

  • Nice tour, very friendly guide!

  • After 4 nights in Krakow we were looking for something a little different to fill our last day as we had a late flight home. The trip turned out to be much more than just a filler, almost the highlight of the holiday.
    Our guide was great, professional but fun. Bikes were good quality and the route along the river out of town towards the Abbey was picturesque and easy going. Coming back slightly harder, just a couple of hills but worth it to do a circular and see parts of modern Krakow that generally the average visitor to Krakow wouldn't see.

  • it was a great ride and worked out really well with a very small group.
