We took a raft down the river that runs through the Pieniny Mountain National Park. And I am so glad we did. Some of the rafts may look rickety but they all seemed to do okay and no one was overly concerned about it. For the most part the river is calm with just a few spots where it is... More

A piece of heaven! Fresh air, nice view, all green! We took the boats and had a nice trip over the river. Our boat guide was only speaking polish but I was amazed by the view so did not really care. It was raining too but all good! If you will go for the boats make sure you take something... More

Enjoyed a lovely walk in the gorge enjoying the wonderful variety of wildflowers and plants. There was a cafe at the entrance to the gorge with picnic tables.

Pieniny are absolutely amazing place to visit! Szczawnica is a good base for most hiking attractions around. Definitively recommend doing the Dunajec river rafting. If you climb Trzy Korony you'll get a chance to enjoy breath taking panorama over Pieniny and Rates mountains. Absolutely spectacular!

If you like trips to the mountains that are not very high but still requiring some effort, if you like nature it's for you. Beautiful views on Tatra Mountains too.
