This is an offer not only for professionals but also and even mostly for people who want to be active but who don’t want to make 150 kilometres every day. We go slowly, admiring the nature and everything worth visiting. Every night though, we sleep in a different place and we carry our bags (you can see how it looks on the picture above). We have everything what’s needed for you, the bicycles and the bags of course, so you don’t need to be worried about anything! What’s our programme?

We pick you up from the airport and we take you to the place where the trip starts. There, everything already waits for you. Of course it depends for how much time you want to come, so every trip is different because we prepare it especially for you and your partner, family or friends!

Białystok is the largest city in the north-east part of Poland (294,000 citizens) and the capital of the Podlasie region. The very unique character of the city has been shaped by the coexistence of many different nationalities, religions, cultures, customs and traditions.  It has always been the home to Poles, Belarusians, Jews, Lithuanians, Germans, Russians, Ukrainians, Romanies, Muslims and Tatars. And it was an excellent place for Ludwik Zamenhof to begin his work on creating the universal world language – Esperanto. A trip by train to Augustów. Accommodation in “Dmuchawce – Latawce” by the lake.

Day 5. Canoeing Trip. Sunbathing at the lake.

The Czarna Hańcza is the largest river of the Suwałki Region. It starts in Suwalski Landscape Park, near the village of Okliny. The Czarna Hańcza River is the oldest and most famous canoeing trail in Poland.

Along its banks there are numerous camping sites. The river flows through areas that are exceptional in terms of landscape, geology and history. It is extremely diverse; in the Suwalski Landscape Park it takes the form of a swift mountain brook, and then, as it enters the valley, it becomes a calmly meandering lowland river.

 

 

Day 6. The Augustow Canal by canoe.

The Augustów Canal is a unique hydraulic engineering work, on a European scale, from the first half of the 19th century. The reason for the construction of the Augustów Canal was Prussian customs restrictions that prevented the transport of Polish goods down the Vistula to Gdansk. The Augustów Canal was to connect the Vistula River tributaries, through the Narew and the Biebrza rivers with the Neman River, and from the Neman, to the Baltic Sea. Connection through Venta Canal was planned to avoid territory of Kingdom of Prussia.

 

 

Day 7.  We ride on bicycles, passing through picturesque Polish villages, admiring the idyllic landscapes!
