Overview

Elbląg Canal is a place where you can take a cruise, not only on water, but also on seas of grass! This engineering marvel thanks to its system of water dams, locks and ramps offers amazing opportunity to take over four hours cruise on water and land and admire amazing panoramas of Polish countryside. It is an unforgettable experience in summer months. After this excellent cruise, you will also have the opportunity to stroll along Elbląg city centre with meticulously restored Old Town with beautiful cathedral, restaurants and cafes. If you spend your time in Tri-City (Gdańsk, Sopot or Gdynia) it is a must see point that you really should include in your travelling plans.

Reviews

I fully recommend this trip! When you are in the area of Gdańsk or Żuławy region you cannot miss it. Instead of using locks, ships are lifted by water run lifts. It's hard to believe and imagine how it works especially when realise how old that construction is. The journey was fantastic, quite slow, but due to perfect weather we had, it was just perfect.
Alexander
A boat-train? I think it is the best name for it. The Canal itself is a great place, definitely a must for travellers. It's a very nice attraction and experience to ride the boat uphill on the rails, really worth to do it if you are passing this place or stay in this region. Nothing similar you will find in any other place.
