Home > Tours from Krakow > Zakopane & Dunajec River Rafting

Are you tired of long sightseeing in the city and want to regenerate? We will take you for Dunajec River Rafting – in Pieniny National Park, which will start in Sromowce Nizne. During around 17 km route you will have an opportunity to admire the beauty of nature and two famous mountains – „Three Crowns” and „Sokolica”. Don’t miss the chance to breathe fresh air and take rest from the city life.

Rafting down the Dunajec gorge is one of the region's biggest attractions. We can successfully call it an attraction on a European scale. The Dunajec gorge is one of the most beautiful gorges on the European continent.

The tradition of rafting on a wooden raft made of connected canoes dates back to the mid-nineteenth century. Tourist rafting dates back to the turn of the 1930s and 1940s. Their originator was the then owner of Szczawnica Jozef (Joseph) Szalaya. Elegant gentlemen in top cylinders and elegant ladies in crinolines and huge hats sat on the rafts.

Rafting on the Dunajec River is the undisputed tourist hit of the Pieniny - the most famous attraction of this area, known throughout Poland. And this is not surprising, because the rafting route leads through extremely picturesque corners, the meandering Dunajec River, which creates a breakthrough here and breaks into the rocks of the Pieniny National Park giving wonderful views that you can't look elsewhere. Rafting on the Dunajec River is the easiest and at the same time the most spectacular way to reach the heart of the Pieniny National Park.

After the rafting (in Szczawnica) our driver will take you to Zakopane – the most popular city in the Tatra mountains, know as winter capital of Poland. You will have 4 hours of free time to explore this beautiful place of Polish highlander’s culture and folklore.

You will have time to rest and try traditional local cuisine - don’t forget to try oscypek - traditional hard smoked cheese – the most famous dainty in this region. You will have plenty of time to stroll down the most famous street in Zakopane – Krupowki to buy some souvenirs.
Later, our driver will take you for funicular ride up the Gubalowka Mountain, where you can admire stunning views of Polish Tatra Mountains.

We guarantee - after these experiences you will come back to Krakow relaxed and peaceful.
