White water rafting on the river Belá or Dunajec river.
Probably the most beautiful river in the north of Slovakia is river Belá.
Our journey starts near the Kokava´s bridge below Podbanske and finishes in a small town called Liptovský Hrádok. That means about 17 kilometres and 2 hours of rafting.
This river is recommended to experienced rafters or to rafters accompanied by an instructor.
The best conditions are in spring when the snow in the mountain melts down and thus the river has a bigger flow. We can raft only when the water level at Podbanske is between 70 – 120cm.
We also expect the water to be cold so the appropriate equipment is needed.
LOCATION OF RIVER DUNAJEC
It´s quiet and easy location. It is really good for beginners. There are two lenghts of our route. First one starts and finishes on the Slovak side (11km) and the second one is on the Polish side (20km).
Season for this location is from April to October. If we talk about equipment we mean the following: life vest and neoprene clothing which is needed in spring and autumn time. T-shirt, sandals and neoprene trousers are needed in summer time.
LOCATION OF LIPTOVSKÝ MIKULÁŠ – THE AREA OF WATER SLALOM
It is a location suitable for everyone (excluding unexperienced kids).
Level of the course is higher but it is also suitable for unexperienced rafters as you will get an instructor for each boat .
This area is runned by a sport club so we must follow their rules and programme.
