Canoeing

The Westpomeranian Region has the best conditions for canoe tourism in Poland. It offers river, lake and sea waters. Here, everybody can swim, both an experienced canoeist and an amateur.

Amazing rivers go through the region, i.a.: Drawa, Gwda, Korytnica, Piława, Rega, Rurzyca, Wieprza. Each of them is different, rich in nature’s attractions and full of interesting places. These rivers are one of the most beautiful in Poland, they are clean, with transparent water. They twist and turn among the forests and meadows, passing fallen trees and lakes. They enter villages and towns. Sometimes they can turn, like the Drawa River, into mountain rivers, with fast current and numerous rocks. The easier ones can be enjoyed by entire families, others require special skills and coping with various obstacles which block the path.

One of the major attractions of Westpomerania is the Baltic coast. Wide, sandy beaches with dunes and forests and beautiful precipitous cliffs are breathtaking. They span from Uznam Island to Jarosławiec. They constitute a perfect location for sea canoeing, which facilitates penetration of wild beaches, shallows, gulfs and capes.

The estuary of the Oder River, one of the most interesting water and nature areas in Poland, is also worth visiting. This remote part of Europe is one of the last river landscapes preserved in its original form. The Oder River, together with Lake Dąbie, Szczecin Lagoon and the Kamień Pomorski Lagoon, form the biggest complex of inland water reservoirs in Poland, creating perfect conditions for canoe tourism.

In the middle stream, it passes through five barrier lakes divided by historic water power plants. In its lower stream, it accelerates, creating the „gorge of the Gwda River”, where it has fast currents and numerous rapids. It loses its speed before Piła, where it becomes navigable.
