Canoeing and Kayaking on the River Czarna Hancza Poland

Canoe Kayak - River Czarna Hancza

We don't currently have any recommendations for canoe hire and kayak outfitters for the Czarna Hancza river in eastern Poland. We recommend that perhaps you try the River Obra or River Warta for a canoeing expedition with a difference. 

Czarna Hańcza is the largest river of the Suwałki region of north-eastern Poland. It is known for having large postglacial boulders. It is a tributary of the Neman River.

A canoe is a small narrow boat, typically human-powered, but also commonly sailed. Canoes usually are pointed at both bow and stern and are normally open on top, but can be covered. In its human-powered form, the canoe is propelled by the use of paddles, with the number of paddlers depending on the size of the canoe (most commonly two). Paddlers face in the direction of travel, either seated on supports in the hull, or kneeling directly upon the hull. In this way paddling a canoe can be contrasted with rowing, where the rowers face away from the direction of travel. Paddles may be single-bladed or double-bladed.
