Kayaking route: Wysoki Most – Frącki (12 km)
Very interesting part with high, steep and wooded banks on the Wigierski National Park territory. As you enter this part, the current is quite rapid, however, it is still very safe and soon it changes back into a slower one. The river in this part has many arms, gentle turns, meanders and reeded backwaters. The scenery is simply majestic!
Not far from your accommodation, you will find a small shop and a waterside hostel with a bar.
For the evening, a bonfire is planned.
Accommodation – guest rooms, bathrooms / campsite.

    5th June
Kayaking route: Frącki– Mikaszówka (23 km)
In this part of the route, the river flows slowly, mainly through the meadows of the Augustów Primeval Forest, leaving behind villages and its buildings. There are no obstacles on the way, as the river goes through a corridor of high grass and reeds. Next the river flows into the very middle of the Augustów Primeval Forest and meanders through marsh valley with wooded banks. The current in this part of the river is faster, yet safe, enabling easier kayaking. The river is winding; some fallen trees on the way, though it is easy to swim them round. At the end of this leg, the Augustow Canal starts, so you will have a chance to see and go through the first two locks, which are manually handled. It is definitely a huge attraction! This part of the trip finishes in Mikaszówka. A place worth visiting here is a wooden church built in sylvan style.
Accommodation – guest rooms with bathrooms or campsite; in the village – shop and a snack bar.
    6th June
Kayaking route: Mikaszówka - Płaska (13 km)
The kayaking trip starts on the Augustow Canal and next we move on lakes, picturesquely situated in the Augustów Primeval Forest. There are three more locks on the way, one of them – the Paniewo lock is a double one, with its water levels difference reaching 6,40 meters!
Accommodation – guest rooms with bathrooms or campsite.
In the village – shop and food outlets.

    7th June
Kayaking route: Płaska – Przewięź (15 km)
Waters of the Augustów Canal are calm and many of its bays are full of water birds and beavers, finding a safe place to stay in the river banks’ greenery. As you go by, on the right hand you will see the mouth of the Cicha Rzeczka River, that leads to the Serwy Lake. Next there is the longest, straight canal part, called the Czarnobrodzki Canal, hugged by ever green forests. There are two more locks on the way.
About 3 p.m. the end of the trip, transportation of people and kayaks to Augustów.
