Friday

Welcome to wintry Poland! Around Poland’s guide will pick you up from the Krakow airport or your hotel. Pick up from any other city upon request. Transfer by car to your first stop in Gorce – mountain range in the Western Beskids. First part of the ski tour with your backpacks on: 3-4 hour long transfer to the first cozy mountain shelter for check in. Day ends up with a traditional mountain dinner and mulled wine.

Saturday

Last day to discover some more Gorce’s summits. In the evening transfer by car to Cracow and the end of the trip.

Sunday

Time to catch a breath! The surrounding silence and majesty of the forest offers a great opportunity to relax in the sun. But you may as well want to continue bike exploration to see examples of the oldest oaks, some of them almost 500 years old and visit the semi natural animal reserve where you may see elks, lynx, wild boars and roe deer among others.
On the way back to Warsaw you will take a brief look at a few more characteristic places of the region. Northeast Poland is one of the most ecologically dense and sparsely populated regions of Poland where many natural areas are protected. Historically it has been a cultural and national mosaic and you may still feel this spirit in some places: like in the colorful Land of Open Shutters or wooden Orthodox churches we will pay a short visit.
On the way you will also see a true stork festival living here in large numbers and nesting in every village! In Podlasie, spring awakening is truly magical, with its picturesque flowery meadows and the scent of nature awakening.
Our trip will slowly come to an end with a late lunch in Tykocin, famous for its Jewish synagogue and brief look at the splendid Narew riverbank.
