The Dunajec Gorge (Przełom Dunajca) is a spectacular stretch of the Dunajec (doo-nah-yets) River, which snakes from Czorsztyn Lake (Jezioro Czorsztyńskie) west between steep cliffs, some of which are over 300m high. Group rafting trips begin in the small village of Sromowce Wyżne-Kąty. You’ll take an 18km-long trip and disembark in Szczawnica. The journey takes about 2¼ hours, depending on the level of the river.

Some rafts go further downstream to Krościenko (23km, 2¾ hours), but there’s not very much to see on that stretch of the river.

The trip to Szczawnica costs 49/25zł adult/concession, while the one to Krościenko is 59/30zł. Return bus tickets cost an additional 9/7zł.
