Highlights

Spend 7 unforgettable days cycling through primeval forest.

Stay at a relaxing wellness spa and hotel

Experience the natural beauty of the UNESCO World Heritage Site Białowieża Forest

Cycle past the hundreds of European bison that roam the forest

Take a paddling tour along the Narewka River

Added to the UNESCO World Heritage List in 1979, the Polish part of the Białowieża Forest is one of the last places where you can see the ecosystem of the lowland forest with your own eyes. The Eastern Poland Family-Friendly Bike Tour is a spectacular journey that will showcase the home of over 800 European bison, as well as 50 species of mammals, around 200 species of birds and 1,000 species of insects.

In addition to the flourishing wildlife, the Białowieża Forest features ancient oak trees that date back to the times of King Władysław Jagiełło (1386-1434). With record-breaking trunks in both height and width, these trees were historically a coveted export good, from which ship masts were once made.

Your trip begins in Białowieża. In your hotel you will receive maps of the area and detailed, constantly updated descriptions of the daily sections, as well as your bikes.
