Route: A challenging tour…
Daily legs over flat terrain do not exceed the 40-60 km limit

A three hour eastward journey from Warsaw brings us to the borders of a country represented by a blank spot on many tourist maps.

Let us set aside our prejudices and political clichés for a bit and take the plunge into a new destination. It is sure to be worth it! We are about to discover a scarcely known but exceedingly welcoming country, that also provides sufficient tourist infrastructure.

The cities are clean and well maintained with carefully renovated cultural monuments. And the magnificent natural landscapes and national parks are a particular highlight. Cycling through Belarus requires no great effort. Traffic is sparse, there are no mountains, and the roads are quite good – some of them even with bike lanes.

Important: Visas are required for Belarus. Please contact us for details.

Day-by-Day Itinerary

Day 1: (Friday) Warsaw – Bialystok

Individual arrivals in Warsaw. Depending on how you choose to arrive, we meet at either the airport or at the central railway station in the afternoon.

Departure to Bialystok (a city near the Belarusian border) is at 2:00 pm. We would advise those not able to book a morning flight or the night train to Warsaw to come a day earlier and to book an extra night.

Day 2: Neman valley 45 km cycling

After crossing the border we cycle along the high banks of the Neman river to arrive at the Augustów Canal. This old waterway dating back to the 19th century recently underwent complete renovation.

The four chamber lock at Niemnowo is particularly impressive. There is an overnight stay at the medieval city of Hrodna, a city with two castles and some churches of historical interest.

Days 3 and 4: The lake plateaus and Naroch National Park daily 45 – 55 km cycling

We travel by bus to northern Belarus where time seems to have come to a halt. Villages with tiny wooden huts standing empty for the most part have scarcely altered in the last century.

We then cycle along a string of smaller lakes and soon arrive at the crystal clear Naroch Lake, the country’s largest lake.

Days 5 and 6: Berezina National Park daily 35-45 km cycling

Berezina National Park has the country’s most famous biosphere reserve, the Berezina Biosphere Reserve, which is at the water divide between the basins of the Baltic and the Black seas.

This is the source of the Berezina River, famous from Napoleonic times. We then cycle through a huge expanse of untouched wilderness- dark forests, moors, rives and seas. You may, if you wish to, also go for a canoe ride.

Day 7: Minsk 45 km cycling

East European metropolises are not usually a particularly good goal for tourists on cycles. This capital city is an exception to the rule. Completely destroyed in World War II, Minsk was rebuilt by Stalin to become the ?ideal? socialist paradise city.

The Svislach River flows through the entire city, and breaks up into numerous lakes surrounded by parks and beautiful alleys. We then cycle to the city centre, a mixture of Soviet architecture and high-tech style.

Day 8: Nesvizh and Mir 55 km cycling

And finally we visit two imposing historical architectural monuments that are exactly a day’s leg apart. The Radziwill family’s castle in Nesvizh from the 17th century with its beautiful parks was recently renovated with great care.

There is an even older castle in Mir similar to a fortress. It is a mixture of gothic, renaissance and baroque work that was recognized as a UNESCO World Cultural Heritage Site following successful restoration efforts.

Day 9: Warsaw

Today we start the return journey to Warsaw, where we will be spending the last night. The time of our arrival will be either early or late afternoon depending on how long border formalities take.

Day 10: (Sunday)

Departure from Warsaw.
