Next year, I and two friends are going to kayak the length of the Wisła River, starting at its source in Wisła and travelling all the way through Poland to Gdansk.
This is a scientific project for my two friends, as they are PhD's, and they want to conduct an environmental examination of the total length of the Wisła River, and this will be the first time it has been done.
The total length is 1,047 km (678 miles) and should take just under a month to do.
This is not the first time I have done this as ten years ago I kayaked across France on the Loire River, starting at the Cévennes Mountains and Kayaking across to the Atlantic, ending up in the Bay of Biscay at St Nazaire and was one of the most amazing times in my life.
We had many adventures, from meeting Mick Jagger in a cafe in Poce-sur-Cisse (he has a wonderful chateau there), living with Romany Gypsies for four days (the most alcoholic experience of my life), nearly drowning on the maintain rapids (scary), and many more.
I don't expect the same things in Poland; however, I think this will be compensated through its natural beauty of winding itself through Poland.
The total length of the Wisła River is very similar to the Loire River 1,013 kilometres (629 miles).
What I really want to know if anyone has kayaked down parts of the Wisła River and their experiences.
