Full description
Travel from Krakow to the Dunajec River Gorge and Tatra Mountains, the most picturesque tourist attractions in southern Poland, on a 12-hour excursion. Marvel at the beauty of the gorge, featured on UNESCO's Tentative List of World Heritage Sites in Poland. Wooden raft trips have been offered since the early 19th century, when customers were guests of the nearby Niedzica and Czorsztyn castles. Your raft trip begins in the village of Sromowce Wyżne-Kąty and ends in the resort town of Szczawnica, 18 kilometers downstream. Enjoy a restaurant lunch at your own expense after rafting. Continue to Zakopane to ride a rail car to admire the Tatra Mountains from the peak of Gubalowka.

The trip was great! Got picked up from the hotel and Zakopane was lovely. Take the funicular to the top. Then we went to a traditional restaurant and then rafting. The rafting bit is very chilled so no rough waters and really shallow. The only thing is that the raft guide did not speak a word of English and it’s a 2,5 hrs trip, and we missed quite a lot of what he was explaining in regards to the history of the river and landscape. Lastly, our drive (who spoke good English) did not drop us off at the hotel so we had to walk 10 minutes from the radisson blue hotel where apparently he had another pick up.

Amazing tour with an amazing driver. We were the only ones who booked the tour on Monday. Our driver Thomas showed us around and stopped as long as we wanted at every location. The rafting was definitely the highlight of this trip. I would recommend to put on something warm if you're going to do this tour in October.

Very good

Punctual collection, good car and very pleasant driver Lukas with very good English. Raft trip great, Zakopane did not meet our expectations, instead of the hustle and bustle of the fair on the Gubalonka, we would have liked to have switched to Kasprowo Wierch as the only participant, but a change was unfortunately not possible.
