WHY THIS TRIP

DRIVE OFF-ROAD THROUGH UNTAMED NATURE

Explore the remote Lower Beskid region of south-east Poland in your own private, rented all-terrain vehicle. We have mapped out beautiful routes and guide the convoy in our own 4WD.

You drive through the former land of the Lemkos, an ethnic group of Carpathian mountain inhabitants. You will discover the most beautiful trails through untouched, wild nature and experience the thrill of driving a 4x4 off-road vehicle.

 

 

DISCOVER THE REGION'S BEST KEPT SECRETS

Along the way you will get a taste of local culture and the best kept secrets of the region. Small winding roads and remote trails cross 

through forests and rivers and lead to historical places and beautiful monuments. Each place has its own unique story, which we love to share with you.

 

ENJOY DELICIOUS OUTDOOR MEALS

Outdoor activity works up an appetite. And we are prepared for this like no other. Along the way you can enjoy tasty,open-air picnics and in the evening, we prepare a fantastic over-the-fire meal at our camping cookout.

 

 

SLEEP UNDER THE STARS

The rolling hills and wild forests offer fantastic wild camping spots. Here you will find everything you need to escape from civilization, including enough wood for a great campfire under the stars.

DAY BY DAY

 

DAY 1: Your rental all-terrain vehicle will be waiting for you in the south of Poland. You arrange your own transport to Krakow Balice Airport, where we pick you up by transfer van.

Together we pick up the off-road vehicles. After a clear explanation on how to use your 4x4 car, we take a scenic drive through the beautiful Lower Beskid region. 

This region is home to the longest mountain range in Poland. The Lower Beskids are part of the Carpathians, a central European mountain range stretching across five countries. We drive through the wonderful and hilly terrain to our first camping spot in the wild nature. We set up camp and enjoy a delicious outdoor meal. A cozy campfire under the starry sky offers the ideal opportunity to get to know the rest of the group.

 

DAY 2: After a nice breakfast and a good cup of coffee or tea we continue our journey. Via beautiful, winding roads we explorethe former land of the Lemkos people, dotted with authentic monuments.

 

The Lemkos belong to an ethnic group of Carpathian mountain dwellers, whose culture was most closely related to that of the Ukraine. After WWII, the Lemkos were chased away from this part of Poland, but their distinctive architecture has been maintained. Some of their churches are even on the Unesco world heritage list.

Via off-road tracks we drive through the forests and fields of the varied landscape of this part of the Carpathians. Behind every hill lies a new panoramic view and of course you will get plenty of opportunities to take in the surroundings and take pictures.

 

The rolling hills and wild forests offer fantastic wild camping spots. Here you will find everything you need to really escape civilization, including enough wood for a great campfire under the stars.

DAY 3: Today we continue our expedition through the Bieszczady region, in the far southeast of Poland. Narrow off-the-beaten-track paths lead to a place where you can taste regional delicacies, which are made in the traditional way, using ancient methods. The ideal ingredients for a nice picnic lunch in the outdoors.

 

We explore this sparsely populated region via the most beautiful trails and drive (partly via asphalt) to our overnight stay. We sleep at a bed & breakfast in beautiful nature and enjoy a relaxing last evening.

DAY 4: After a leisurely breakfast we take one last drive with the 4x4s before returning the cars.

Every day is a new adventure. We have prepared a beautiful, adventurous route, but there may be some adjustments to the program along the way. We make sure we always arrive at the destination together, whichever track we take.

THIS SOUNDS AMAZING!

WHY SOUTH POLAND

IN THE HEART OF EUROPE

Although we often refer to Poland as an Eastern European country, it is actually located in Central Europe. The city of Krakow provides a convenient gateway to the relatively little-visited south east of Poland. The rural areas in this region are not overrun by tourists, nature takes its course here and people live to the natural rhythm of the seasons. 

 

This is the place where you can explore endlessly in your 4WD. Ancient tracks curve through dense forests, over rolling hills and through green valleys. Local, traditional delicacies are still made by hand, the dust is beaten out of rugs with an old-fashioned carpet beater, and homemade vodka is being distilled in the basement of every second house.

 

CULTURAL TRADITIONS AND LOCAL LEGENDS

The Lower Beskids and Bieszczady regions offer beautiful routes through beautiful landscapes, dotted with typical wooden architecture and historical monuments. These provinces have a turbulent history and maintain their unique cultural traditions. The inhabitants of the mystical hills have a lot of local legends, which we love to share with you at the campfire.

 

CALM AND SPACIOUS 

Nature in this region is not designed and planned, but wild and untouched. We love it here, as it gives you a feeling ofspace and a sense of calmness. The peaceful landscape offers views without any trace of human civilization. The hills andvast forests offer varied off-road tracks and fantastic wild camping spots, away from the inhabited human world.

 

One thing is certain; you will be amazed by the natural beauty and the warm, welcoming locals of this relatively little visited region!

“We had the pleasure of joining Tomek and Suzanne on one of their adventurous trips across the surprisingly beautiful Polish countryside.

 

The thrill and excitement of driving a 4WD over winding roads and paths topped off with great company, food & drinks, campfires and nights spent under the starry night sky made for an

epic adventure.

Highly recommended!”
