Pomerania offers an unusual way of visiting the region – out of the canoe, thanks to the over 30 navigable canoe trails, whose total length is 3 000 kilometres. Do you regard constant paddling as boring? Certainly not here! When you enter the mountain river you will struggle not to fall into the water, but when you sail on picturesque lakes and rivers you will be fascinated by the beautiful landscapes. Furthermore, only in Pomerania can you finish the canoeing trip over the seacoast.
The Chocina Route – the river of a thousand bridges
89-607 Zielona Chocina
The Chocina Route will surprise you. At first sight, nothing much is going on there, but the river and its environment have that 'something', which you need to feel, experience, and understand for yourself.
Its placid current takes the canoe on a trip around mainly meadows and fields, and only at times do several trees appear on the riverbank. What is more, you can often encounter footbridges hung across the water which provide a break from the monotony of the trip. With little effort, though, they can be passed without stepping out of your canoe. The moments when the route runs through short forest sections will take your breath away, as they arouse admiration even in the most experienced of canoeists, who have seen a lot. The lower course of the route is also extraordinary, and you can easily lose the sense of your whereabouts there. The river also meanders so much in the fields that, when you have companions, you can see each rowing in a different direction.
