Dunajec River Raft Trip

| |
  

Taking a raft trip through the Pieniny Gorge is a unique and unforgettable experience, thus, worth recommending to Zakopane visitors. The nearly three hours' raft trip down the meandering Dunajec River is a perfect opportunity for admiring the picturesque scenery of the Pieniny Mountains, the limestone rock formations and the towering cliffs on both sides of the river banks.

It is from the rafts that one can enjoy the magnificent view of the Trzy Korony (Three Crowns) and Sokolica Mountain – the highest peaks in the Pieninski National Park. The rafts are made of several wooden boats fastened together. The guides are flisacy (the Dunajec raftsmen) dressed in their traditional clothes, which adds to the charm of this unusual rafting experience. They know the Dunajec River like the back of their hand, thus, they know which route to take on this swift, at times, river current. The ride is fascinating not only thanks to the picturesque scenery all around but to the legends and stories the raftsmen make tourists familiar with.

The rafts set off from the raft wharf in Sromowce-Katy, from where tourists can choose from two raft routes. The shorter one goes to Szczawnica, whereas the longer one reaches Kroscienko. The former one lasts 2 h 15 minutes (18 km), whereas the latter one lasts 2 h 45 minutes (23 km). Come as you will enjoy it!
