Krakow: Country Bike Tour to the Tyniec Abbey

2. Krakow: Country Bike Tour to the Tyniec Abbey

This 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.

A lovely afternoon activity riding outside Krakow through the countryside. Our guide was very informative and told us lots of stories and information about Krakow and the abbey. It did get quite dark during our ride back into the city which get a little bit unsafe for riding, even with the lights we had (although we were delayed due to stopping during a short thunderstorm, which can’t be helped). Overall an enjoyable experience away from the crowds of the Krakow old town!

A nice cruise on the picturesque Vistula. The weather was good for us, so it was possible to combine business with pleasure (there is a tan;)). I recommend it to anyone who wants to rest for a while. Beautiful Tyniec worth visiting.

The tour guide, Tom, was very friendly and knowledgeable! The place was very easy to find. I really enjoyed the bike tour and I am already planing on doing another one in the future .

Unforgettable impressions. The perfect way for a romantic afternoon and evening for two
