See Gdańsk from a slightly different perspective – from a kayak. There are several routes to follow, all at various levels of difficulty, suited to your skills. One popular route is following the Motława around Granary Island. See three faces of Gdańsk: historical power, port of everyday life and is beautiful nature. The historical part is full of mystery and beautiful architecture of past centuries along the Old and New Motlawa. On the industrial and historical side, you will pass through the Dead Vistula river with a view of the shipyards and port.

What people are saying about Motława

We had a small, quasi private tour through the beautiful city of Gdansk with Dorota as the German-speaking guide and had a lot of fun and lots of great pictures and information for 3 hours. You can feel Dorota's love for the city of Gdansk. We got tips from her where to eat or snack well and we also had a very pleasant chat with her in between. It was a really nice afternoon!

Kaja was a fantastic guide. Easy to understand and with great knowledge. - Not only what she had prepared to tell, but also ready with answers to all our questions. Certainly highly recommended! Easy to understand (English)

Very good and, above all, interesting tour with lots of references to details that would otherwise be overlooked. Everything went perfectly in spite of the very short-term booking.

Our tour guide was super informative and friendly. He was extremely educated on the history and gave us tons of great information. It was very sad history to see

This tour gave us a lot of information and suggestions for further explorations in and around Gdansk. We will surely come back.
