What You Can Expect

Dunajec River Gorge and Niedzica Castle from Krakow

Dunajec River Gorge and Niedzica Castle from Krakow

Begin your excursion with a visit to Niedzica Castle (also known as Dunajec Castle), originally built in the 14th century by the Hungarians to protect an important trade route through the Dunajec Valley. The castle towers over a large water reservoir with an impressive dam built in mid 1990s. While visiting the castle you can admire the delightful view over the artificial lake and learn the amazing story of Inca refugees who found shelter here.

After your visit of the castle, continue to Sromowce Nizne to board your wooden raft to drift at a leisurely pace along the Dunajec River. The river runs from northern Slovakia to southern Poland and is at its most picturesque passing through Dunajec River Gorge. Your adventure down the winding Dunajec River offers breathtaking views of mighty limestone cliffs plunging into the water and stunning native flora, you may even spot some rare bird species such as the Black Stork.

Your highly experienced guide ensures you have a smooth ride, pointing out the sights along the way and teaching you the history of the gorge. Your 2 to 3 hour voyage ends 15 kilometers later in Szczawnica. It is advisable to bring suitable rainwear or a sun hat depending on the weather.

Customer Reviews

5 star rating: Highly Recommended September 2014

Our Dunajec River raft trip was wonderful, everything we had hoped. The scenery was beautiful, and our English-speaking guide was great. He was extremely articulate in English, well-informed and educated in general and kept us entertained throughout the ride from Krakow, the raft and castle trips, and the ride back.
We were also pleased with how smoothly the pick-up went at our hotel. We tried to book a Dunajec trip six years ago through a different agency, and it was a disaster. We never got to take the trip at all. So we were very pleased that your pick-up and drop-off worked so well.
