Tour description

A raft ride down the rambling Dunajec river and through the towering Pieniny Gaps peaks is one of the greatest tourist attractions in Poland. We can assure you that this experience will be one that’s full of excitement and wonder. You’re sure to be impressed by dramatic views of snowy mountain peaks, steep rocky slopes that plunge into the river, and the unexpected twists and turns of the river that take us between gorges. These will become lasting memories to be cherished.

Rafting trips are organized during peak tourist season, from early April to late September.

Rafting down the Dunajec is without a doubt the number-one attraction in the Pieniny region. Narrow wooden canoes, which are roped into groups of five supporting small platforms, are steered by cheery men in folk costumes. This method of navigating the river has been a top choice of mountain visitors for well over a hundred years now. This 15-kilometer stretch of the Dunajec takes turn after turn, and snakes down scenic narrow gorges flanked by monumental slopes.

Rafting is by no means the only attraction in this area. There are many inte­resting mountain trails on both sides of the river, from which you can ad­mire the Pieniny range with its perfectly set castles – Czorsztyn and Niedzica. In the latter, a batch of very mys­terious Inka documents was found, and ghost stories are rampant. The town of Szczawnica, well known for its mineral water springs, is also worth a visit.

On the way back to Krakow, we will visit a cherished fifteenth century church that’s inscribed on the UNESCO World Heritage List. Located in Dębno Podhalańskie, it’s dedicated to Saint Michael the Archangel, and is part of the Wooden Architecture Trail around Krakow. This important and distinct church is one of the trail’s highlights.
