Dunajec River Rafting Tours from Krakow
- Normal Ticket
Enjoy a Rafting Tour in the Heart of the Pieniny Land
The Dunajec River Gorge is undeniably one of the most scenic river rafting routes in Europe. The raft crossing attracts great interest and takes place in a park boasting one of the most enrapturing landscapes – the Pieniny National Park.
After arriving in Sromowce Wyżne-Kąty, you join other participants for the trip. We cross the river gorge on traditional wooden rafts, the construction of which has remained unchanged for over 200 years. To this day, the reliability of their structure is an incredible curiosity. The rafting trips break attendance records year after year — in one season, the Dunajec river is crossed by over 250 thousand tourists! The awe-inspiring beauty of nature unchanged for millennia, serenity, harmony and the panorama of the Tatra mountains make up only a fraction of the landscapes you get to admire and remember for long.
One raft can accommodate a group of up to 10 people, lead by two raftsmen — a foreman at the front and an assistant at the back of the raft. The raft is propelled with long, wooden poles the raftsmen jam against the river bed. The expertise of the polers is truly impressive, if only for the fact that the river may be up to 18 meters deep.
During the 2 hours and 15 minutes of the rafting trip, you have an opportunity to see, among other things, 14th-century Červený Kláštor on the Slovak side. You’re sure to be impressed by rugged limestone rocks reaching even 500 m in height above the water surface.
The highlight of the trip, however, is a view of the most famous summits of the Pieniny Mountains, namely Sokolica and Trzy Korony. The most popular route of the raft trip down the Dunajec river ends in the town of Szczawnica — one of the oldest Polish health resorts. You have about 1 hour of free time and then we return to Krakow.
*The trip may be canceled if minimal number of participants is not gathered and for reasons beyond the control of the organizer.
