The second edition of the Vistula 1200. 1200 km along Vistula River. From its spring at Mt. Barania to river mouth in Gdansk. The course is an ultimate test for gravel bike- hundreds of kilometers of gravel/dirt roads mixed with tarmac segments and some single-tracks. Vast wilderness mixed with Poland’s fast developing cities. Vistula 1200 has it all. Come and check for yourself!

People traveled along rivers for ages. They were natural routes and their always-changing stream thought people respect to the power of nature. That’s how we marked the route. After covering over 2500 kilometers along both banks of the river, from its springs underneath Barania Gora Mt. all the way to its estuary in Gdańsk, we chose the parts which best show its might and beauty.

The route leads through roads, paths, rubbles and dikes. Riding along busy roads is limited to absolute minimum, to provide safety and comfort of being in touch with the nature and history, which you will not find in any other place in Europe.
