Our winter kayak tour in Gdansk is an excellent idea for new paddlers to experience kayaking for the first time on quiet water, or for experienced kayakers to enjoy a stunning paddle through Gdansk’s scenic waterways. The river is generally less trafficked in the cold months, making kayaking in winter one of the most pleasant ways to paddle, while our drysuits will keep you safe and warm! There will be a hot chocolate break in the middle of the tour. Hot chocolate tastes best if served in a kayak!

Along the way you will have a unique chance to see some of the most important Gdansk highlights by kayak. Among others: Crane (Żuraw), Soldek Ship, Granary Island, Olowianka Island, Olowianka Footbridge, Radunia Canal, Motlawa River Embankment, The Polish Baltic Philharmonic, Gdansk Shipyard and Dead Vistula or Stone Lock, and Old City Moat (depending on the water and wind conditions).
Gdansk is quite uniquely located at the crossroads of sea and river routes, waterways of the Vistula river at the Baltic estuary, as well as the Radunia and Motlawa rivers. This had a significant impact on the city’s development. The daily living as shown in literature and drawings proves that water was the important element of the city’s life. It is important today to show Gdansk through its relation to water.
For the best kayaking experience we provide quality equipment – stable touring kayaks, lightweight paddles, life vests, dry suits, dry bags for your documents and spray skirts which will keep you dry and warm inside the kayak, even on a rainy day. Gear matters!
