All thanks to the initiative taken by Małopolska Voivodeship to implement the largest cycle route project in Poland, known as 'Velo Małopolska'. The project includes construction of eight modern cycle routes of the highest European standard, runningthrough the region of Małopolska, including two sections within the EuroVelo network.

Some sections have already been completed and made available to cyclists; on other sections, intensive construction works are still in progress. Currently, over 400 km of routes are available for use. Feel free to test the possibilities offered by the new sections right now, and to discover the joys of riding a bike. See you on the routes of Velo Małopolska!

Over 200 kilometres of unforgettable views are offered by Małopolska's new cycle route, VeloDunajec. Built in accordance with the highest European standards, it has excellent markings and bicycle service points. It crosses the picturesque areas of the Dunajec valley, with views of several mountain ranges: the Tatras, Gorce Mountains, Beskids, Pieniny and Pogórze. While following its course, cyclists can reach the historical Church of St Michael the Archangel in Dębno Podhalańskie, the medieval Dunajec Castle in Niedzica, Pieniny National Park with the Dunajec Gorge, the pedestrian and cyclist footbridge over the Dunajec (which takes you across the Poland-Slovakia border), the health resort in Szczawnica, the Sądecki Ethnographic Park, and the Monument to the Heroes of September 1939 in Biskupice Radłowskie, among other sites. In the area of Lake Czorsztyn, VeloDunajec will form part of the route built within the land management project around the water reservoir. From Stary Sącz to Ostrów it will overlap with EuroVelo11; while in Wietrzychowice it will join the Vistula Cycle Route. Altogether the route will be 237 kilometres long, starting in Zakopane and finishing in Wietrzychowice.


The cycle route which is being built on the Vistula in the region of Małopolska will be the first of its kind in Poland. The Vistula Cycle Route substantially enhances the comfort of bicycletourism. Spanning over wide swathes of Poland, this route makes it possible for cyclists to traverse the whole country: from the springs of the Vistula to the Baltic Sea. The Małopolska section has been built in accordance with the highest European standards; it has excellent markings and bicycle service points and stretches over the most picturesque areas of the Vistula valley.

The new tourist cycle route starts off in Jawiszowice. Then the route leads through Oświęcim and Skawina, passes by the famous Benedictine Abbey in Tyniec, goes through Kraków along the Vistula Boulevards, passes right alongside Niepołomice and gives an opportunity for cyclists to branch off and visit charming and colourful Zalipie, a few kilometres away from the route itself. After over 230 kilometres, the route finishes in Szczucin. In fact, what distinguishes the Vistula Cycle Route from other cycle routes is the slight incline of the terrain for the vast majority of the route  and its remoteness from urban areas.

Despite the still unfinished construction works of the presented trails, even in their present state, they provide an excellent option for spending leisure time, not only for seasoned cyclists, but also for recreational cyclists, families with children, seniors, i.e. for absolutely everyone who wants to enjoy active leisure time outdoors, far from the urban hustle and bustle, surrounded by nature.

All you need to do is set off on the route!
