The Pieniny raftsmen have been guiding people down the Dunajec river since time immemorial. In 1934 they formed an association in the wake of growing interest in the region, and between the months of May and September you can take a raft downriver through some magnificent countryside. There are two routes, both lasting about two and a half hours. Amongst the most captivating scenery that you pass through are the famous Trzy Korony (The Three Crowns) and the spectacular Dunajec Gorge. This is certainly not white-water rafting, and you take in the countryside at a very congenial pace. However, the experience is very Tolkienesque and couples are likely to enjoy the romance of it all - a kind of Polish mountaineers version of the Venetian gondola.

Feel like sharing?
hard to choose yorkshire dales or zakopane love both
it's not whitewater action, but any day on the river is a better day
Looks like a lot of fun....
Sorry we didn't meet these guys. Looks genuinely great... We're coming frodo...
Why didn't I know about this before I set off?! Looks amazing. I suppose there's always a next time....
This was just amazing. Loved every minute of it - and didn't fall in the river once...!
Very glad we made the effort to do this. Took a bit of getting there but beautiful countryside and much more leisurely than white-water rafting...!
This looks amazing. White-water rafting, eighteenth century style. How do I book!
I'm down for this - Lord of the Rings style. Awesome!
Rafting was the highlight of our wonderfull holiday in Zakopane, an unforgetable experience.
