The North of Poland - A Week Long Tour

N.B. this package are delivered by incoming tour operator Transfer

The North of Poland is a beautiful varied region. The tourists visiting this part of the country have a chance to see the picturesque Polish seashore alongside with beautiful Gdansk and Sopot, visit one of the cleanest regions in Europe, the Masuria Lake District and explore Warsaw, which within the past two decades has become a truly vibrant capital with modern clubs, shopping galleries and imposing glass skyscrapers.

Day 1
Arrival in Gdansk Airport. Meeting with a local English speaking guide. Transfer to a 3*star hotel.

Dinner in the hotel or a city restaurant.

Day 2
A whole day tour round Gdansk starts in the heart and soul of the city, the beautiful Old Town of Gdansk which boasts picturesque Hanseatic tenement houses, historical Townhall and the biggest red brick church in the world, St. Mary's Church.

The walk through the Old Town will be finished off with a few minutes of spare time. Next, the guests will be transferred to another beautiful part of Gdansk called Oliwa, where one can visit magnificent Oliwa Cathedral with the world famous organs. A short organ concert will be followed by a visit to Sopot, a town which together with Gdansk and Gdynia constitutes the so called Tricity complex. Sopot is probably the most popular holiday resort in Poland which stuns its visitors with charming city villas from the beginning of the 20 th century, the beautiful wide sandy beach and the longest European wooden pier, the walk on which will be the last point before the return to the hotel.

Dinner in a city or the hotel restaurant.

Day 3
Transfer from Gdansk to the Masuria Lake District with a stop in Malbork to visit the majestic castle complex built by the Knights of the Teutonic Order and categorised by UNESCO as the World Cultural Heritage Site. The next stop is Swieta Lipka – a small village famous for one the most beautiful Baroque Churches in this part of Europe.

Transfer to the hotel. Check-in.

Dinner in the hotel restaurant.

Day 4
This day will be full dedicated to a canoeing trip on one of the Masurian rivers. Even though the safest possible, the route will certainly not be boring. As the they row their canoes, the tourists will pass picturesque villages, vast green fields and some of the great lakes. Thanks to the extraordinary water clarity, it is also possible to observe fish and other smaller creatures living in the river whereas the forests lining the route are inhabited by numerous rare species of the flora and fauna. To rest a little and gather strength to continue the excursion, we suggest the group have a break with an open air grill lunch by a bonfire during their trip.

Dinner will be served in the hotel restaurant.


Canoes on Krutyn River

Day 5
After breakfast, the group will set off for Warsaw. On arrival, a stroll around the historical Old Town of Warsaw together with an English speaking guide. Next, a visit to the Royal Castle which is not only a museum full of beautiful interiors but also a great source of knowledge about both the Polish and European history.

Free time. Check-in at the hotel.

Dinner in the hotel or a city restaurant.

Day 6
Day 6 is further exploration of the Polish capital and the vicinity.

First a visit to the Warsaw Uprising Museum – a place commemorating the tragic days in 1944 when most inhabitants of Warsaw dared to rebel against the German yoke and when the city was almost completely destroyed during countless fights between the German army and the Polish guerrillas. The latest multimedia techniques used in the exhibitions help the visitors understand and, to some extent, experience the Uprising time.

Then the visitors will have a chance to become familiar with the social realism architecture as they visit The Palace of Science and Culture which was a ''present'' from the USSR for Poland in the 1950s and whose construction reminds monumental socialist palaces in Moscow – the visitors are taken on the special lift to the top of the Palace from which they can admire the beautiful city's panorama.

Next, we recommend a stroll in a beautiful Neoclassical garden called Łazienkowski Park – one of the biggest and most beautiful parks in Warsaw. Then, a visit to Wilanów, a beautiful district on the outskirts of the city with a magnificent palace. Wilanów Palace was built as the summer residence for one of the Polish kings. Its lavish interiors, designed by the artists from all over the world, stun thousands of visitors every year. It is also possible walk through the beautiful park surrounding the Palace.

Return to Warsaw.
