Poland: Carpathian Mountains Guided Walk

 
The massif of the Carpathians is a long crescent that runs from the Czech Republic to Romania through Slovakia, Poland, and Ukraine. This massif runs through 450km in the south of Poland. The best-known range, the most "Alpine" but also the most popular among tourists, is the chain of the Tatra Mountains with the famous resort in Zakopane. There are also Polish ranges of medium-altitude, which are perhaps less known and best-preserved. Among them, we may name the Beskidy, the Gorce, the Pieniny or the Bieszczady Mountains.
 
Navigating the route along the Tatra Mountains in Poland
 
This region has strong folklore and highland traditions. The shepherd's life is very developed, and the wooden architecture has a magical charm. Learn more about the Carpathian 8-days Guided Walk.
 

Poland: Pieniny and Tatra Mountains Walk

 
In the West Carpathians, walk Poland's stunning Tatra Mountain range to discover rich wildlife, unique mountain culture, and pretty villages. Reach picturesque viewpoints with 360-degree panoramas of the forest topped Pieniny Mountains and endless lush valleys. See how the Dunajec river weaves its way through the limestone of Pieniny National Park, leaving stunning gorges in its wake. Keep your eyes peeled to spot active wildlife: foxes, lynxes, wolves, and bears in this well preserved and protected region. Marvel at the harmony between the rugged wild nature and the beautiful, flower-filled pastures maintained by hillside locals.
 
The breathtaking trail in Poland beckons you forward
 
Encounter the magnificent Niedzica castle, perched on the water's edge and visit the gothic wooden churches of Debno. Learn about the Podhale region's highland traditions from the villagers you meet along the way, particularly in Zakopane, a special town filled with wood and stone architecture as well as a bustling folk atmosphere. Your reluctance to leave the Polish wilderness will be mitigated by the charming city of Krakow, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Explore the rich culture and picturesque landscapes of the Pieniny and Tatra Mountains of Poland on the 8-days self guided walk.
 

Lithuania, Belarus and Poland Cycle

 
The borderlands of Lithuania, Poland, and Belarus are rich in natural features with national parks, sandy plains, vast forests, crystal clear lakes, and deep river valleys characterising the terrain. Cycle through this landscape to discover the Cepkeliu-Dzukijos National Park in Lithuania, the Grodno region with the Augustow Canal in Belarus, and Masurian Lakeland with Wigry and Biebrza National Parks in Poland. 

There are many towns and villages to explore en route including Druskininkai spa resort with its Soviet-style wooden houses. With each country a new culture, language and cuisine are discovered, providing a fascinating dimension to this unique cycle journey.
 
Visit Vilnius, the baroque beauty of the Baltic and a city of immense allure
Southern Sweden remains one of Europe's best-kept secrets just waiting to be explored on foot, by bike, and aboard a canoe or boat. Its countryside dotted with charming villages, open meadows, pristine forests, glittering lakes, and extensive archipelagos are only a few highlights. In the summer months, the outdoors are bursting with life and the long sunshine extends into the evenings offering plenty of time to take part in activities like camping, hiking, and island hopping through the archipelago.

On this specially designed family itinerary, the activities begin in Stockholm to the Ecopark, the world's first national park to be located within a city. Leaving the city by steamboat is one of the many highlights as you journey across calm Lake Mälaren to Mariefred with its impressive Gripsholm's Castle. Cycle, canoe, and hike from Stockholm to Sodermanland and the Baltic Sea Coast on an active family adventure.
