Rafting on the Dunajec is one of the biggest attractions of the region. Successfully, we can even call it a highlight on the European scale. This canyon is the most beautiful gorges in Europe.
Participation in rafting does not require special preparation and equipment. Please be aware that the tours can be chilly. It will be useful, therefore, an additional outer garment, which, if you will be able to use it. The raft, on which we travel, consists of five wooden canoes with dimensions of 5.75 m at 45 cm. They are strongly linked to the bottom of the boat are lined with twigs of spruce or fir. Boat, which may be present in 10 adults (or 8 adults and 4 children) headed by both experienced rafters. Control is by means of long poles - the so-called sprysek. The rafting route has a length of 15 km. Beat at this level difference amounting to 36 meters. Depending on the current state of water runoff duration is from 2 to 3 hours.
Historically, rallies were organized only on great occasions. Used them lords and important personages, which consisted of visits to castles to kings in Czorsztyn and Niedzica. Today, the only requirement to participate in rafting is just the ticket purchase.

The scenery is really beautiful and I guess that this area does attract also many hikers, next to the rafters.
I particularly enjoy the strongly forested nature of this beautiful canyon.
Very good in the vertical format.
Happy Easter, Paul

A rafting is very popular kind of tourism in my region too. But this is not my cap of tee. Fine composition, good presentation of the mounty landscape on the BG.
