Wkra – the heart of the district
The location of the district upon rivers Wkra and Narew decided about its tourist-recreational direction of development. Canoeing is very popular among residents, and visitors. Wkra river which has very deep history; its legal status has been settled for over 230 years. The river meanders gently among forests and meadows. It is very friendly, the current is quiet and the river itself is considered to be very friendly to family tourism, simply ideal for first time canoeing. We encourage everyone, who wants to spend time actively and looks at the nature from a different perspective, to try drifting. An optimal solution is to take one day route from Joniec to Pomiechówek. On the distance of about 30 kilometers the river shows us its varied nature. At times the waters are deep and the terrain is virgin like. There is a lot of birds, fish, sometimes beavers can be spotted on river banks, and in a moment this peaceful, lazy stream will bring the expected relief. Wkra is a river of many names. After reaching Pomiechówek we leave our canoe at the bridge, let’s go up, nearby we have Pomiechówek’s forests (Lasy Pomiechowskie), Magnolia Tourist Inn, and Italian machine ice cream. Lovely and with tradition.
We invite You for family canoeing! In June the District Community Center organizes ‘Wianki’ (custom of throwing garlands of flowers into the water on Midsummer Night’s Eve) in Wkra River valley, and as one of the attractions it offers a canoe adventure for parents and their children. The trip is crazy, but safe, the distance isn’t very long, and the paste is slow. During stops there are integration games, and talks. Sun, children smiling, You can feel that it is high summer.
