6 days trips

1

6-days or one-week kayak trips are a great idea for cheap holidays in the kayak. Everybody can try out this type of active leisure.
Our one-week kayak trips are usually held from Sunday to Friday, and Sunday is the day when the participants arrive. During the rally, 5 days are dedicated to kayaking. That’s why instructors often call these rallies “five-day trips”.

You can take your whole family; kids love sleeping in a tent, splashing each other in the water and cooking sausages over the campfire; it will be an unforgettable adventure for them. It can also be a men’s trip for father and son.

Kayaks, tents, campfires = HOLIDAYS IN THE KAYAK!

Couples can prove themselves in the kayak, as paddling together is a “relationship test”; it requires cooperation and sacrifices. Paddling usually goes smoothly, but not necessarily already on the first day.

On the other hand, singles have the opportunity to get to know new people who like spending their free time actively on guided kayak trips. Choose the kayak trip for you. We provide kayak trips with baggage transport, where our minibus goes along the route, and trapper versions, where baggage needs to be packed into the kayaks and transported to the next campsite.

We are a TRAVEL AGENCY so we have entered the Register of Tour Operators and Tour Intermediaries, Certificate No. 86/10, the authority that made this entry is the Marshal of the Świętokrzyskie Province. You can also check that in the Main Register of Tour Operators under no. 5251. In addition, the payments made for our guided kayak trips are covered by the guarantee of AXA Insurance and Reinsurance Company.

6-days kayak trips on the Nida – with baggage transport

A one-week kayak trip on the Nida is our proposal for unforgettable holidays in the kayak.

The Biała Nida and the Czarna Nida are joined and form the Nida, namely the centre of the beautiful Świętokrzyskie region known as Ponidzie. The rally begins on Sunday evening at a campfire nearby the village of Mniszek on the Nida Biała. During the next few days, we cover the next parts of the Nida route, until Friday afternoon.

Our five-day kayak trips, apart from fine kayaks, staff, baggage transport, etc., offer a unique atmosphere, small campfires and lots of surprises made by our instructors, during the past seasons there were forest saunas and the cooking of nettle soup together. All this makes that nobody wants to go back home on Friday, when the kayak trip ends.

The families with kids can test their cooperation skills when putting up tents. Fathers and sons will experience truly “men’s” holidays where a dirty foot is not a problem, a solid chunk of sausage cooked over a campfire is the base of a balanced diet, and a night by the campfire will make that even a seven-year-old kid feels like a real trapper. Couples can test themselves in new situations, as paddling together is sometimes a relationship test? You don’t have a partner for the kayak? That’s aright, come and visit us! You will meet new people, find a companion for the kayak and maybe the acquaintances from the rally will last longer…

We started organising kayak trips on the Nida more than ten years ago. Many things have changed since then; we have better kayaks, our kayak rallies are becoming more and more popular, we train another instructors, and the kids who once sat for the first time in a kayak on our trip take their own kids on our rallies… We go kayaking in spring, summer, autumn and winter. All this time we observe how the river changes. Since we know the route of the Czarna Nida, the Biała Nida and the Nida very well, we can provide maximum safety to the participants of our kayak trips and we are eager to help other kayakers that we meet on the river.

6-days kayak trips on the Lubrzanka adn Nida– with baggage transport

During this kayaking trip you’ll have the opportunity to see where Czarna Nida starts. We begin our adventure on the Lubrzanka River which joining the Belnianka River creates Czarna Nida. The route of this trip is very varied, incredibly picturesque and because of its difficulty rarely visited by other kayakers. During the trip you may expect fallen tree trunks, beavers’ dames, portagings around small water power stations or towing your boat through pebbly and gravelly grindings with a low water level. All along first two days getting out of the kayak and dragging or carrying it over some obstacles will be necessary. As the river widens, it becomes easier to kayak on and there are fewer obstacles. There will be time for lazy drifting along with the current.

To sum up, this kayaking trip offers different conditions every day, starting with a lot of obstacles on the Lubrzanka River and finishing with lazy floating on the Nida River. During those five days you’ll have the opportunity to see three joined rivers but also visit the heritage park in Tokarnia and a castle in Sobków.

Our five – day trips beside excellent kayaks, great crew and transport have an unforgettable atmosphere, cosy evenings by the campfire and plenty of surprises created by our instructors. In previous years we had camp saunas and cooking nettle soup on the campfire. On this particular trip beside kayaking you can experience camping in the heritage park in Tokarnia. Taking all the attractions into consideration you won’t be willing to go home when the trip is over.
