DescriptionThis country tour takes you along the Vistula river to Tyniec; a small town 12 kilometers west of Krakow, famous for its 11th-century Benedictine abbey. The abbey played a crucial military role in Poland's Christian restoration and the nation's rebuilding. Your tour will begin along the Vistula River, over a smooth bike path which will lead you through Southern Poland's picturesque countryside. You will pass through age-old woods, see crumbling forts, and cycle past some of the lakes that surround Krakow. Upon arrival at Tyniec, you will have the chance to explore the ancient grounds, enjoy a snack, take photographs of the scenery, and visit the gift shop (which is full products prepared by local monks). The essence of the tour is a relaxed, scenic country ride, rather than the stop-start nature of a city tour. You will cover a total of 25 kilometers (15.5 miles), on a ride which lasts for almost 4.5 hours, departing in the afternoon and returning in the evening. A backpack is recommended, as it will allow you to transport food, water and gifts back from the abbey.
