An attractive part of the river meanders among the majestic, natural forests of the Augustów Primeval Forest – the second largest forest complex in the Poland. The river flows in a rather narrow bed, the current is gentle and safe. There are many bends on the route, some fallen trees, branches sticking out of the water. The most of them can be kayaked over, paddling skillfuly. For experienced kayakers it is a piece of cake, for beginners it is more adrenaline 😉
We start the kayaking trip in a small village and immediately enter the world of beautiful forest nature. The next village is not until in 10 km. There is charming and convenient place for a stop and a bath on the route after 5 km kayaking (three Oaks). The last two kilometers we kayak through the fascinating Augustów Canal regulated by historic, manually operated locks (must-see!). In total, we will rise over 5 meters. Attraction!
