How to prepare for a kayaking trip on the Piaśnica River?
You don’t have to be an avid kayaker to embark on a kayaking trip on the Piaśnica. The river’s current is gentle. It’s about 7 km to the sea from the lock at Lake Żarnowieckie.
However, before setting out, it’s worth considering a few useful tips:
- Dress appropriately for the weather; if it’s raining, protect yourself with a rain jacket, and on sunny days, don’t forget a head covering.
- Use sunscreen and bring sunglasses on sunny days to protect your eyes.
- Carry water and small snacks.
- Bring waterproof cases for documents and your phone; you can keep them in a trash bag inside your backpack to prevent splashing while paddling.
- Optionally, sports gloves might be useful to prevent unnecessary blisters, even though the distance is short.
