The Vistula is the longest river in Poland and connects important historical cities of Poland such as Kraków, Warsaw and Gdańsk. The queen of Polish rivers is a natural river. It forms a landscape that can no longer be found anywhere else in Europe. Their course was hardly regulated; one can still observe the formation of islands and the washing out of the shores. It crosses the whole country from the Beskids in the south to Gdańsk in the north. The Vistula is home to many mammals. Here you can meet the rare otters, as well as numerous beavers and muskrats. But the greatest wealth of the river is its birds - here you can meet both the most species at once, as well as rare and endangered bird species. If you want to get to know the world on the Vistula, we offer you an eight-day bike tour from Warsaw to Gdańsk along the Vistula. On the way you will visit old and historical places such as the Gothic Copernicus town of Toruń, picturesque towns such as Chełmno/Kulm and Grudziądz/Graudenz and the Malbork Castle, where the huge Teutonic Castle is located. From Thorn to Gdańsk, our bike tour not only takes us along the Vistula, but also along the crusader castles.

Toruń/Thorn has been on the elite UNESCO World Heritage List since 1997. The town owes its inimitable character primarily to excellently preserved architectural monuments - Gothic churches, baroque granaries, graceful town houses, many of which have not changed in appearance for centuries.
