Adventure Travel in Poland: Thrilling Activities for Adrenaline Junkies

Poland is famous for the above, but with nearly 40 million people living here and millions of tourists visiting yearly, there must be more to do there. Here is a guide to the best ideas for adventure travel in Poland. Hold tight and let’s go.


Half an hour’s drive from majestic Krakow, there is a place, that all adrenalin junkies love. Energylandia in Zator is an amusement park with slides and rollercoasters that make everyone scream. Mega Roller Coaster Hiperion with a speed of 140 km/h and 80 meters drops is the faster and the tallest in Europe. Only looking at it, raises the adrenaline levels.
