What a brilliant way to see Gdansk. A fun activity combined with a beautiful city and a great instructor made for a memorable experience. Super easy to book online with clear instructions on where to meet. My instructor was very friendly and experienced. Having been the only one on my tour, he traveled at my own place, pointing out places of interest and telling interesting stories of the city. Doing it in winter, I was expecting it to be very cold but with our dry suits, mittens on the paddles and the sun shining, it was a beautiful day! Definitely recommend for a unique way to see the city.

What an amazing tour! It was the first time kajaking for me, the instructor explained everything fast and easy. We did a bit of sightseeing on the kajak, he explained some stuff abput some buildings and told somw stories. He also made pics that we receive via email. It was an amazing experience. I will do that again!

Myself and my husband really enjoyed our winter kayaking trip in Gdańsk. We got to do a slightly longer route due to “paddling fast” and really enjoyed the light history and anecdotes about GDansk as we explored the city. Would definately recommend. The dry suits kept us nice and toasty :)

A really enjoyable activity. Szymon is a great guide with lots of interesting information on the city as well as being very reassuring about all aspects of kayaking in an enjoyable trip. A fun way to see the city that I would definitely recommend

Great activity to explore Gdansk and meet friendly travelers from all across the world.
