A Baltic coast several hundred kilometers long in the north, the alpine high mountains of the Tatra in the south, the legendary Giant Mountains as well as the unspoiled Masurian Lake District are paradises for motorcyclists. Bends and hairpin bend galore and a well-developed road network guarantee lots of riding fun. And the towns also have a lot to offer. In the historic old towns of Krakow and Thorn, you feel transported to the Middle Ages, Wroclaw and Gdansk are symbols of the country's eventful history. But unfortunately, Poland does not have the best image. But as we know: Travelling is fun and helps to break down prejudices. On our tour "South Poland: Giant Mountains & High Tatras" we already get to know some of these sights and cities. And much more: Poland perfectly combines traditional with contemporary. In addition, there is the proverbial hospitality that is shown to visitors at all stops on the tour. Poland is a country to fall in love with and once you have been here you will never let go. Therefore, come with us and experience for yourself how endearing the mentality of the Poles is. The very special charm enchants everyone and the largely very well-developed tourist infrastructure offers a suitable framework.
