Hiking

Poland’s National Parks with their network of footpaths provide some of the best walking in the country. Whether you choose the mountainous region or a seaside area, you can be sure to find wonderful scenery and varied wildlife.

Sailing

If the Baltic coast with well-equipped marinas is a perfect sailing destination, then equally attractive is the Masurian Lake District. With over 2,000 lakes, it offers the best inland sailing experience in Poland.  

Cycling

Traffic-free cycling trails following natural or purpose-built paths in scenic areas are perfect for gentle cycling. Places to find these are scattered across Poland. Good mountain biking terrain can be found in the south of Poland.

Horse riding

If you are planning to take day hacks, choose a scenic part of the country for your riding holiday. For more information on check Poland’s selected riding centres.

White-water rafting

The fast-flowing Dunajec River makes the Pieniny mountains Poland’s prime destination for rafting. Other rivers, such as the Nysa Kłodzka, the Dzika Orlica, or Kamienna offer more relaxing rides, unless early in spring after intensive rainfall.

Climbing

You do not necessarily have to visit the high mountains to find perfect climbing spots. There are other areas offering you a challenging day out, especially around Cracow and Częstochowa.

Shipwreck diving

Some of the best dive wreck sites in Poland, with a number of ghostly ships lurking beneath the waves, include the Bay of Gdańsk or the area between Hel and Łeba. There are things to explore at a whole range of depths.

Windurfing

The Baltic Coast offers lots of popular windsurfing launch sites, including the Hel Peninsula or the Bay of Puck..  The winds are also very good in some inland locations, such as the Masurian or the Lubuskie Lake Districts.

Paragliding

Polish mountains or the coastal cliffs offer good conditions for paragliding. Good winds and stunning scenery attract paragliders between April and October.

Quad biking

Nothing matches a quad biking  session for the adrenaline-fuelled elation. The boisterous machines can be rented all over Poland. For more information on where to rent a quad, see quad biking article
