Krakow: Kayaking in the Pieniny National Park

The canyon of the Dunajec river is a natural border between Poland and Slovakia. It is surrounded on both sides by the local fauna and flora, which is characteristic for this area, and also the Three Crowns massif (982 m a.s.l.) and Sokolica (747 m a.s.l.). Spectacular landscapes, breathtaking views and the sounds of the mountain river attract tourists from every corner of the globe each year. The greatest attraction of this region is undoubtedly rafting on the Dunajec river. This activity is available in two options – a calm version, during which you can join the friendly rafters and admire the outstanding beauty of the nature surrounding you, or a more exciting version – on pontoons or canoes. But keep in mind that kayaking is more demanding than rafting, because you need to control the kayak by yourself and choose the right way to swim. Luckily, the Dunajec river is relatively easy to get through. Every participant will be equipped with a safety vest and a helmet, and the safety is supervised by instructors on a kayak, who will help them choose the right way of sailing and ensure safety.
