As its name suggests – Hotel Bania **** Thermal & Ski – the hotel is widely known for promoting taking a well-deserved rest in thermal waters after enjoying some active relaxation.
Keeping fit is a vital element of staying healthy, and as we all know – health is our biggest wealth. With this in mind, we have prepared special Bania Velo offers for those of our guests who enjoy cycling. You can either bring your own bikes or hire them on site (also electric bikes). You can choose from a whole range of cycling trips – you can:
go cycling on your own and, for example, take a cable car to the top of Kotelnica to explore the beauty of the Royal Route, choose a trip that includes transport to the starting point and collection from the pick-up point, put yourself in the hands of professionals and take part in an organised trip. You can add these optional activities to your holiday itinerary – ask for details when booking your stay (you can choose a dedicated cycling package) or during your stay at the reception.
