Green Velo is a 2000 km cycling path running through Eastern Poland. Designed and developed thanks to the collaboration of 5 regions, the path promotes cycling as an alternative mobility to discover the area, including mountain massifs. By providing a safe, marked, and equipped path and promoting the surrounding natural and cultural heritage, Green Velo is a unique and comprehensive active tourism offer.
Green Velo has been developed beyond the administrative regional borders thanks to the cooperation of 5 regions and the support from the European Regional Development Fund under the Operational Programme Development of Eastern Poland. The circuit is a complete tourist offer, combining the promotion of sport and natural and cultural heritage. Its high level of equipment and safety helps to really encourage tourists to travel by bicycle. By promoting surrounding infrastructures and attractions, the initiative also contributes to valorise local SMEs and business from mountainous regions.
