The rafting season in this area starts on the first of April and lasts till the thirty-first of October. Still, as Pieniny National Park is greatly covered in deciduous forest, the best time to make the rafting is in autumn when colourful leaves create artistic landscapes. The journey starts in Sromowce Kąty and it can end in two spots. The option to Szczawnica takes about 2:15 h and its length is about 18 km, the version to Kroscienko takes about 2:45 h and its length is about 23 km. River Dunajec cuts into the Pieniny Mountains at about 8 km distance. In this part of the range, the river creates very sharp meanders and slopes are as high as 300m. Dunajec Gorge is considered one of the most beautiful natural gorges in Europe.
