Uncover the best of Poland, from layered history to thriving culture
Turn the pages of Poland’s story as you journey to three of its most iconic cities: Krakow, Warsaw and Gdansk. This 7-day adventure will guide you through years of history to the captivating country that exists today. Discover medieval and soviet remnants in Krakow, take a sobering walk through Auschwitz and Birkenau, uncover the secrets of Polish food in Warsaw and learn about a time of revolution in Gdansk. Much like a good pierogi dumpling, the best bits of the country are found beneath the surface, and with a local leader to guide the way, you’ll discover a side of Poland few get to see.
Discover the Orwellian neighbourhood of Nowa Huta – an alternative district in Krakow that showcases the communist influence in Poland.
Explore Warsaw, a modern city with Gothic, neoclassical and Soviet-era architecture, and a soul of rich history and culture.
Tuck into a Polish food tour, discovering the signature cuisine of this central European country, and wash it all down with a vodka tasting.
Cycle through Gdansk on a bike tour, learning about the city’s history of oppositionist movements, and hear stories of how this important trading port has played a key part in Poland’s history.
Take a sobering walk through the Nazi concentration camp in Auschwitz and Birkenau, joining a local guide to learn about WWII and Europe’s darkest days.
Just as a heads up before you book: this trip is new to our range this year. And while we have thoroughly researched every detail of the logistics, new destinations can sometimes throw us some unexpected surprises. More often than not, it’ll be a great surprise. But every now and again there might be a hiccup. We like to think that’s what puts the ‘adventure’ in ‘adventure travel’.
We travel by train, the most eco-friendly way to move between places. Trains are comfortable and are the perfect way to arrive right into the city centre of your next destination. Please note you will have to carry your bag up and down the platforms and on and off the train. Pack light!
There will be a walking tour included in each city. The tours may cover a fair amount of ground, so please make sure you are happy to be on your feet for a few hours at a time. Of course you can always opt out and meet the group later on.
