Poland as a motorbike travel destination! Hardly any other European country offers such a wide range of different sights as Poland. A several hundred kilometres long Baltic Sea coast in the north, the alpine high mountains of the Tatra in the south, the legendary Giant Mountains as well as the untouched Masurian Lake District are paradises for motorcyclists. Curves and bends in abundance and a well-developed road network guarantee lots of riding fun. And the cities 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 eventful history of the country. 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 a part of these sights and cities. And much more: Poland combines tradition and the present in perfection.

Therefore come with us and experience for yourself how lovable the mentality of the Poles is. The very special charm enchants everyone and the mostly very well developed tourist infrastructure offers a suitable setting.
