Warsaw or Krakow? Now you don’t have to choose, as there is a relatively unknown treasure linking these two cities, just waiting for cycle tourists to discover it.
A dense network of what was previously sandy or stony small country roads has now been newly paved, and the smooth asphalt roads with minimal traffic are perfect for a beautiful cycling holiday. That’s why we recommend Poland as a premier cycling destination, and the Pilica Cycle Path is a leisurely and simple week-long bike tour that starts in Krakow and ends in Warka near Warsaw.
Along the route, if you fancy something a bit different, there are sections of the river where you can rent a canoe & be driven a few miles upstream, so you can paddle back and enjoy the river from a different perspective!
