Sromowce Nizne
Going rafting down the Dunajec river is one of the most beloved and classic tourist attractions in all of Poland. The tour begins around 8:00 am from the center of Krakow, or from your place of accommodation in the city.

After about 2 hours, you will reach the boating center, where you will board a traditional wooden watercraft, operated by a river guide in customary regional dress. This stunningly scenic water route will gently take you 15 kilometers downstream, underneath legendary mountain peaks and alongside thick woodlands and winding nature paths. You may even spot some curious local wildlife along the way!

2 hours • Admission Ticket Free

Pieniny National Park
After the exhilarating ride, there is a break for lunch in the pretty little resort town of Szczawnica.

60 minutes • Admission Ticket Not Included

St. Michael Archangel's Church in Debno
On the way back to Krakow, you 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.

We were picked up on time by Wojciech. He was a fantastic guide. From start to finish we were looked after perfectly.
It is quite a long drive but absolutely worth it.
The scenery is outstanding.
We enjoyed seeing traditional wooden houses and 15th century Church of St Michael the Archangel.
Rafting in Dunajec was pleasant. The rafts hold 12 people and it was quite busy.
I recommend if you visit Krakow allow yourself 6 days as there is so much to see and do.
Fabulous day

One of the highlights of our trip. The weather, scenery and atmosphere was perfect. Every new bend in the river was another sigh of awe. We were lucky enough to spot a bear cub by the river. We were the only Polish speaking couple on the raft, so we had fun translating as some of the comments the raft steerer was coming out with were hilarious.
Excellant trip

Thanks to another nearby passenger. He was able to interpret polish to English during guided tour. Was a beautiful trip despite a overcast day. Would definately recommend this trip.

One of the highlights of our trip to Poland! The river and mountains were simply breathtaking. Our guide was sincere and passionate about his life adventures. He shared stories and explained the culture and history of the area throughout the ride. He took time to point out special sights and explain their importance.
This is a MUST SEE if you are in the area!!

We've recently returned from a fantastic week stay at the Krakow. We were there from the 13th to the 20th of July and enjoyed every minute. We were made to feel extremely welcome by all tour leaders and were very punctual. I can't not mention Blueberry, when we went rafting the Dunajec River Gorge She was extremely helpful with everything, full of good advice, recommendations and nothing is too much trouble for her. She presented her interpersonal skills in a very professional manner. Hoping to return again next year......Cant wait!
