Dunajec River Soft Rafting

Dunajec River Gorge and Niedzica Castle

Discover the most spectacular gorge of Europe – the Dunajec River gorge.

This, undoubtedly one of the Poland's prime tourist attractions, gives
you a chance to admire some of the most amazing scenery in the Polish
highlands. Usually referred to as "the raft trip down the Dunajec
river", this is in fact a rather leisurely drift in large wooden punts.
Highly experienced guides make sure you have a smooth ride and keep you
informed about the sights you see and the history of the trips, which
goes back to 1840s . The voyage down the winding Dunajec offers
breathtaking views of mighty limestone cliffs plunging into the water as
well as stunning native vegetation both protected by the second oldest
international national park in the world. Also, while sailing down the
river you can spot some rare bird species including the Black Stork.
Another attraction of the tour is a visit to Niedzica Castle which was
originally built in the 14th century by the Hungarians to protect an
important trade through the Dunajec valley. Nowadays the castle towers
over a large water reservoir and an impressive dam built in mid 90s.
While visiting the castle you can admire the delightful view over the
artificial lake and learn an amazing story of Inca refugees that found
shelter there. Our trip begins at Niedzica Castle, then continues to the
wharf in Sromowce Niżne and ends 15 km later in Szczawnica. The voyage
lasts two to three hours, depending on the water level of the river. It
is advisable to bring rainwear or a sun hat depending on the weather.
