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.
  • 4-hour afternoon bike tour around the Krakow countryside with a visit to Tyniec Abbey
  • Visit 11th-century Tyniec Abbey, Poland’s oldest working monastery
  • Explore the museum and church, and learn about the monks’ daily lives
  • Cycle through Wolski Forest and pass Pope John Paul II’s former home
  • Stop for refreshments and snap photos of Krakow as the sun sets

Why Travelers Choose This Tour

Bring pocket money and a backpack on this tour so you can buy and carry back souvenirs at Tyniec. The monastery shop is full of goodies made by the monks such as beer, wine, oils and teas — all great souvenirs.
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.

A great tour, well organized and prepared. The tour leader was great and the views - sites were impressive. However you must have a good experience of bike riding not just someone who uses a bike every now and than. The road is long and has a number of hills. The bikes were not all 100% as should be so when you are not experienced this makes a lot of difference. Otherwise very very good.

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.

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.
