Zakopane and Dunajec River Rafting

Use your time as best as you can. On one day you will visit the two pearls of southern Poland – Zakopane – the city at the base of the highest Polish mountain peaks and the Dunajec Gorge – one of the most spectacular places in the Polish mountains.

What should I know about?

Zakopane is a small town in the south of Poland at the foot of the Tatra – the highest mountains in Poland. The city is very popular among tourists, especially because of its location and the unique

atmosphere as well as the mountain folklore that cannot be found anywhere else. Zakopane is full with tourists both in summer and in winter, and it is called the winter capital of Poland. It is a place every tourist must see.

Dunajec River Rafting – it is the ride on a special raft that is served by two raftsmen called Flisacy. The rafting trip is a two-hour ride on a mountain river that has created its river bed in the heart of the Pieniny Mountains. The most beautiful section of the river is settled between Sromowce Niżne and Szczawnica. It is a 12km long track that is surrounded by 300m high mountain slopes on one side and by picturesque hills on the other side. The entire route runs across a National Park, far away from the civilization, surrounded by wild nature.

About the tour...

See the amazing ski jumping hill from Enjoy Cracow Tours
Wooden houses in Chocholow village from Enjoy Cracow Tours

Both places are situated in the south of Poland, about 120 km away from Cracow and only 40 km away from each other. With a little willingness you can visit both places during one tour.

The whole tour starts at 08.00 in the morning. From your hotel we will start the journey to the first attraction – the Dunajec Valley, where the rafting trip begins. The journey takes about 2 hours, on the way we will stop in the village of Dębno, where you can visit a gothic wooden church from the XIII century, a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

The next stop is the medieval fortress in Niedzica. It is an old and beautiful building on a hill at the bank of the River Dunajec.

From there it is only a few kilometres to the pier in Sromowce Niżne. There is a raft pier from where you will start your 2 hour rafting trip. All formalities will be organized by your driver who will be waiting for you at the pier in Szczawnica where the rafting trip ends.

From Szczawnica you will continue your journey to Zakopane. Depending on the time, a short break for regeneration will be possible.

The first stop on your ride to Zakopane is the wooden church in Jaszczurówka. The church is unique because it was built in the Zakopane mountain style and it is entirely made of wood, without the use of just a single nail.

Later in Zakopane there are many attractions waiting for you: a ride with the cable car to the Gubałówka Mountain, where a beautiful view of the city and the panorama of Tatra spreads in front of your eyes, as well as a walk across the market with local products to Krupówki Street – the most famous street of the city.

A lunch break of about 2 hours is planned at this point of our route.

After visiting the Krupówki Street, we will travel on our way back via the village of Chochołów, which is known for its original traditionally built wooden houses. You will have the opportunity to see these traditional houses closer.

The last point on this tour is a stop in a traditional mountain hut, where local sheep breeders produce their specialty – the Oscypek – it is a salty cheese made of sheep’s milk.

The whole tour ends in Cracow at the place of your choice. It is a one-day tour and it takes about 12 to 14 hours, depending on the selected activities.

Our English speaking driver will pick you up from the hotel and will take care of you during the entire tour. He will arrange the rafting trip and will wait for you at the pier when the rafting trip ends.
