Overview

Traveling privately on a custom itinerary means flexibility – flexibility to immerse yourself in your own exclusive experience, to craft an itinerary around your interests, and to travel when it’s right for you.

Want to learn the painstaking Polish art of blowing and decorating glass Christmas ornaments? How about exploring your roots by visiting the villages your ancestors once called home? Need suggestions?

Signature Experiences

Acquaint yourself with the vibrant traditions of Poland through our signature experiences. Let them be a source of inspiration, then get in touch with a MIR Private Journey Specialist to craft an itinerary uniquely suited to your travel goals, budget, and style.

  • Float leisurely down the River Dunajec on a handmade raft poled by gorale (Polish highlanders) in traditional costume, taking in the scenery of the Pieniny Mountains.
  • Learn how to make pierogi, Poland’s national dish, with your own private chef. Practice mixing and rolling the thin dough, then stuffing it with any number of savory ingredients including mashed potatoes and onions, ground meat, cheese, or even fruit.
  • Take a private guided tour of the Auschwitz-Birkenau concentration camp, where an estimated 1 million people, 90% of them Jews, were tortured and killed. Visit the Auschwitz-Birkenau Memorial and Museum, honor the victims, and learn more about the atrocities committed by the Nazis.
  • Sample some of Poland’s finest vodkas in true Slavic fashion hosted by vodka experts. The experience includes Polish accompaniments such as pickles, Polish sausages, horseradish, and smalec, traditionally prepared pork fat with herbs and spices.
