Małopolska by the water – something acquatic for everyone!

From enchanting lakes to wild rivers and relaxing thermal baths Anyone who likes to be around the water  will be surprised at how many places the south of Poland offers in this respect! Lake Rożnowskie, located in the valley of the Dunajec River,  is one of the most popular recreational spots in the Małopolska region. Created as a result of the construction of the Rożnów dam, it is an ideal choice for lovers of water sports such as sailing, canoeing, windsurfing, and  fishing. There are numerous resorts and beaches around the lake, attracting lots of water lovers.

Some others  are Lake Czorsztyńskie with an absolutely amazing panorama of the Tatra Mountains (we will soon tell you why you should take your bike there!), Lake Mucharskie located at the foot of the Beskid Mały, and the somewhat mysterious, but extremely charming Lake Klimkówka in the Beskid Niski.

In addition, you can raft on the rushing waters of the Dunajec River and on the Poprad, s well as kayak peacefully down the Vistula or try a traditional trip on rafting boats in the Pieniny Mountains.
