This was a trip I wasn't sure I was going to take; first of all, it was two hours from Krakow ... and 2 1/2 hours on a raft??? It had started off near the top of my 'things to do' while in Krakow, but had sank to the bottom as the days progressed. But it was a hot, sunny day in Krakow, and the tour guide/driver I had hired for several trips happened to be available, so off I went. I'm very glad I went. The rafts are actually quite comfortable; wood, but with a back, so sitting up was not a problem. My 'rafter' didn't speak a word of English (nor did anyone else on the raft) but he tried very hard, pointing out things and explaining them to me (at least I assume that was what he was doing). I would not and pretend I understood; the only thing I actualyl did get was that the river formed the border between Poland and Slovakia. The scenery is beautiful, with mountains, hill, valleys, limestone rocks and cliffs, fish swimming near the surface, birds, etc. The water is very shallow for the most part, and the 'rapids' are little more than a few feet of fast moving water. The rafter even lets you borrow his hat, jacket and pole and takes your picture! He must have been quite a comic, because he had the whole group laughing most of the way (perhaps at the Canadian who couldn't speak English!), Even if I couldn’t understand the rafter and ‘tour guide’, it was a thoroughly enjoyable river ride watching the Polish countryside glide by. A fun morning, very glad I decided to go after all.
