Dunajec River Rafting on a traditional raft – it is an amazing meeting with the wild nature, unchanged for thousands of years – one of the greatest tourist attractions in Europe. Simultaneously, it is the best way to see the Pieniński National Park. The Dunajec River sculpted the ravine in the limestone rocks. The ravine is known as the Dunajec River Gorge. The tradition of steering down the river on a wooden raft built from narrow boats tied together to each other dates back to the first half of the 19th century. During the rafting the raftsmen talk about the Pieniny Mountains recalling the legends about Janosik as well as pointing to the most interesting spots on the way.
