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.

The trip was excellent. The guide was very good and his English was excellent. The scenery was beautiful. The trip around the castle was very interesting with plenty to see. The best part was the brilliant raft trip down the river. The two Polish boat men were good even though they did not speak a word of English they pointed out anything of interest including a white eagle. The trip down the river was very relaxing and the views of the mountains and gorges were amazing a 5 star day out

Our guide Jacek (Jack) really made the day great.
The day started off a bit rainy (drizzling only), and so it turned out we were the only people on the tour, however the tour still went ahead and we had a personalised tour where we were driven out by Jack in a very comfortable car.
What really made the day special though was the opportunity to talk with Jack about Polish politics, history, the amazing history of the families who lived in the castle, modern Polish music, insights on the difference in culture between Krakovians and Zakopane highlanders and all sorts of other interesting topics.
A really great day. The boat ride itself goes into Slovakia (so you can claim you've been to another country).
An easy day trip from Krakow, and certainly worth doing.
