Poland – Extra information & tips


  • Bush camping is generally tolerated – as long you don’t make any fire or roll out your fake grass carpet. In other words, respect your surroundings and they will not send you away.
    • Many forest roads are accessible for larger expedition trucks.  WOOOHOOOO
  • Exploring Cities – Tips where to stay overnight:
    • Gdańsk: The Academic Sports Centre of Gdansk University of Technology has an official secured campsite. Ideal for a visit to Gdańsk.
    • Poznań: We stayed overnight at a relative quiet, large secured parking lot (link to google maps). We paid approx. 10€ for 24hrs. The parking lot is less than 5min walk from the city centre!
  • Drinking one beer and you’re over the permitted alcohol level for driving (0.2).
  • The conditions of the Polish roads are relatively good.
    • There are few toll roads. To make use of them, vehicles heavier than 3.5 ton need to get a viaBOX – an on-board unit for electronic payment of the toll (viaToll, the electronic toll collection system; check their website for where to get and return the viaBOX).
  • SVL Support: The organization in charge of the offroad week  (new, updated website coming soon).
