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 UNESCO's elite list of world cultural heritage sites since 1997. The city owes its inimitable character primarily to the excellently preserved architectural monuments - the Gothic churches, baroque granaries, graceful town houses, many of which have had an unchanged appearance for centuries. Torun is a city where past and present meet and science meets culture. The enchanting old town motivates everyone to take walks in the footsteps of European cultural heritage. In addition to the monuments, Torun is also famous as the birthplace of Nicholas Copernicus. Here we taste the famous Torun gingerbread.
