    1. Czarna Hańcza River and Augustów Canal: Dworczysko – Mikaszówka  /12 km

11:00 AM – transportation to the starting place; the planned return: 5:30 PM
One of the most appealing and best known kayaking routes in Poland. The river is relatively wide, and it has a mild current that makes it easier to kayak. It meanders calmly along grasslands and woods of Augustów Primeval Forest. Its relaxing atmosphere is driven by the river’s gentle bends, curves, and fallen trees that are easy to pass. In general, the route is not difficult, suitable for beginners and families with children. The last two kilometers we kayak through the Augustów Canal regulated by historic, manually operated locks (must-see!). In Mikaszówka there is an old wooden church built in the traditional architectural style, a perfect match for the wilderness of old-growth forests.Duration: approx. 5 hours (with several stops in the meantime).

Transportation from the ending point back to Augustów.

    2. Rospuda River: Małe Raczki – Święte Miejsce  /15 km

9:30 AM – transportation to the starting place; the planned return: 4:00 PM.
Along the river there are sections with sharp curves, fallen trees and large boulders, but there are also calmer ones, where the river is mild and free of obstacles. In summertime the route is relatively easy. Surrounded by beautiful, picturesque scenery! On the route there are two unique spots to visit: the ruins of Pac Palace in Dowspuda, and Święte Miejsce nature reserve – cultural and religious site.

Transportation from the ending point back to Augustów.
