Itinerary

Day
1-3
Welcome to Poland! We begin our tour in Warsaw, a colourful city with a complex history, that has recently blossomed into a diverse display of restored gothic architecture and cosmopolitan modernism. Explore the old town, taste the traditional cuisine and the music of the Poland’s greatest composer, Chopin!
Day
4-6
We continue through Poland with a trip to the northern, Baltic Sea port city of Gdansk. Breathe in the fresh sea air as you explore the quaint streets, and the reconstructed facades of the many mansions. Relax by the beach in picturesque Sopot, learn about the unique Kashubian people, and admire the views of the sparkling sea! Take a day to explore the magnificent town of Torun and learn to make Polish gingerbread.
Day
7
Take a day to visit the capital of Lower Silesia, Wroclaw! A town nestled on 12 islands in the Odra River, that sports a unique character from years of Bohemian, Austrian, and Prussian influences.
Day
8-9
On the way to Zakopane, we will pay a visit to the former Nazi death camp in Auschwitz, and take time to reflect at the poignant museum and memorial that stand on the grounds. Afterwards, we will take in the beautiful natural landscapes and breathtaking views of Zakopane, a resort town situated at the feet of the Tatra Mountains. Explore the unique culture of the mountain-dwelling locals, and raft on the Dunajec River!
Day
10-14
We end our tour in mystical Krakow. According to legend, the city was founded after the defeat of a dragon that lived in its hills. Krakow’s myths and legends linger still in its streets and squares. Walk around the quaint market square, Rynek Glowny. Explore the Wielczka Salt Mines, they reach 135 meters underground and even have small chapels inside!
