Weekend trips

wodowanie-top

If you lack free time to spend the whole week kayaking, come just for a weekend! Our weekend trips are very popular, so in summer 2018 we offer four different routes.

On every route we organize trips according to the same, trusted pattern. Also the distance to paddle is similar on each river. The routes vary in difficulty though. Pilica is the easiest, we recommend it even to amateurs with small children. The most difficult is Lubrzanka-Czarna Nida, so we recommend this route to those who have at least minimal kayaking experience and like challenges.

We meet on Friday. Most of participants come in the evening, after work. Then, we also deliver our instructors and equipment. We paddle through Saturday and Sunday, all the luggage is transported in the minivan to the next camp site. We put up tents, start a camp fire and enjoy relaxing in the wilderness.

If you’re not coming by car we can pick you up from the railway station in Jędrzejów or Włoszczowa but we need to know that 3 days in advance and you will need to adjust to the time we suggest.

Our weekend trips are organized events. You can come alone or with a group of friends.

We are a registered Polish Travel Agency specializing in organizing kayaking trips: you can find us in Rejestr Organizatorów Turystyki i Pośredników Turystycznych no. 86/10, signed by Marszałek Województwa Świętokrzyskiego and in Centralna Ewidencja Organizatorów Turystyki no. 5251, we also have an insurance guaranty AXA Towarzystwo Ubezpieczeń i Reasekuracji

BIAŁA NIDA

Biała Nida is one of the two source rivers of Nida. Nida is a 151 kilometers long left-bank tributary of the Vistula River. It is located in the middle part of Southern Poland, in Świętokrzyskie Voivodeship, between Cracow and Warsaw.

Biała Nida is an easy, flat water river. At the beginning the river is wild, rather narrow and curvy. The banks are covered with reed and willow bushes and you need to manoeuvre smoothly around and sometimes through them. With a higher level of water and faster current it might be necessary to portage the boat over a small bridge next to an old mill, half through the first day of the trip. On the way you’ll find a few small, stone bars but you don’t need to portage.  To sum up: no portages, on Saturday we don’t have much to paddle but it will be narrow and curvy, on Sunday we paddle a bit more and the river is much wider.

The route is really picturesque, wild, appropriate also for beginners.

Attention! Biała and Czarna Nida routes cover themselves in about 30%

CZARNA NIDA

Weekend kayaking trips on Czarna Nida

Czarna Nida together with Biała Nida create the Nida River which is an axis of a beautiful region Ponidzie, located in Świętokrzyskie Voivodeship in central and south parts of  Poland.

This route is designed for those with at least minimal kayaking experience. On the first day you need to portage over a water-power station in a water mill in Wolica. Right behind it you paddle on a long rapid which might be difficult for amateurs. Under the bridge in Tokarnia you meet another rapid but shorter. There are many fallen tree trunks and branches in the river bed that force kayakers to maneouvre smoothly between them and sometimes to portage.

On Saturday we paddle for about 23 km which can be exhausting, especially for parents paddling with kids aboard. On Sunday we paddle on an easier and shorter but still beautiful part of the river.

Attention! Biała and Czarna Nida routes cover themselves in about 30%

Lubrzanka-Czarna Nida

Lubrzanka is the right source river of Czarna Nida. It begins in the Klonowskie mountain range in the Świętokrzyskie Mountains. Our brand new weekend offer is lower Lubrzanka and upper Czarna Nida. We finish the trip in Ostrów where our other weekend trips on Czarna Nida start.

This year we prepared the kayaking route on Lubrzanka and Czarna Nida as our answer to your numerous requests for a new weekend route. Here it is!  Come to face new challenges.

This time we offer a bit more difficult route, sent to more experienced kayakers. We don’t recommend it for beginners. Besides the usual: fords, grindings, curves, fallen tree trunks, you will face there four portages. Additionally, we can’t foresee the activity of the beavers population… However we are sure that our veterans will fancy the new route. We are really delighted!

The whole route, on account of difficulty is rather short – about 25 km.
