The Poprad River boating trip in special-purpose flat-bottom boats, somewhat similar to rafts, is 10 kilometres long. One boat can take 12 people and two boatmen. The trip starts in Piwniczna - Zdrój, and takes between 1.5 and 2.5 hours to get to Rytro, where it finishes. A trip down the Poprad River is an unforgettable adventure among meanders amidst the richness of the world of plants and animals. Interestingly, the Poprad's source is on the southern slope of the Carpathian Mountains, yet it flows northwards to the Baltic Sea. After reaching the finish line in Rytro, you can climb a hill featuring the ruins of a 13th century castle. For more information about the boat trip, visit: splywdolinapopradu.pl/opis-splywu.htm.
