Where can you go by bike? It is interesting to ride through all corners of the historical town of Skalica and see all the sights. Or you can go to Ponds, the Morava River, the port on the Perun´s meadow, or for the fitter tourists there are marked cycling paths. The ideal trip on a bicycle is the bank of the Morava River, which has been well-adapted for these purposes. It is possible to walk to Bratislava after connecting to the Záhorská cycle route along the river current. Against the current of the river, a cyclist can cross the state border, go to Strážnice, for example, rent a boat and spend pleasant moments on the water.

Educational trails are marked in the country in various forms of marked tourist and excursion routes with various lengths and focus, which are created in naturally, but also culturally or historically interesting or typical areas. Within these routes, some selected objects, phenomena or attractions are explained separately, mostly on information panels, which are built on the educational trails. Nature trails are part of the information system, which also includes educational sites, historical paths and open-air museums.
Educational sites are a naturally, culturally-historically and landscape-valuable area with a high informative value. They represent a predominantly enclosed space in the interior or exterior with or without built facilities, where these values created by nature or man-made values are exhibited.
At present, educational trails represent an integral part of the Slovak country and their focus is much more varied and specialized. Already in the names of educational trails, names such as forestry, mining, ecological, historical, hunting, environmental, etc. appear. Today, nature trails participate in the presentation of micro-regions and municipalities, their history, culture and natural conditions, as well as in the promotion of the activities of various organizations, including schools and civic associations.
The White Carpathians Nature Trail goes through Goldsmith Valley, which consists of seven educational panels, where visitors are provided with the most important data on ethnography, history, geography of this area, animals, fauna of the White Carpathians, the history of fishing and hunting in Slovakia and also provide valuable information on conservation of nature in the White Carpathians.
