If you like active rest, go to kayaking along the rivers of Belarus

Kayaking is carried out from the beginning of May to the end of September and is suitable for people of any age category and physical form who are accustomed to an active lifestyle,

In Belarus there are only rivers of the first category of complexity (the easiest) for rafting in kayaks that is great for beginners. Among the water routes of Belarus there are several rivers with a relatively fast current and picturesque banks.

Stracha and Isloch are some of the most popular small rivers for kayaking in Belarus. On these rivers there are rifts, shivers, but they are poorly expressed and fall only under the first category of complexity. The rivers of Nalibokskaya Pushcha are also interesting: their banks are covered with virgin forests.

Additionally, in the northern part of Belarus, in Poozerye (Lake Region), it is possible to plot water routes that will pass through the lake systems: the route along the Drujka river (the Braslav lake system), the Uscha river (the system of lakes of the Sinsha reserve), the Diva and Turovlyanka rivers (Ushachi lake system).

The interest in Belarusian rivers is not only their calmness but the beautiful wild nature that surrounds

them and lacks on the coast, on a long stretch, populated areas. Along its riverbed, there are several protected nature reserves (“Olmanskie bogs” reserve, “Pripyatsky” national park, “Middle Pripyat” reserve). For 60-70 km of the river, from the village of Dzerzhinsk (the former Radzivilovichi) to the village of Korotichi, there is no settlement and no objects of human activity. Good example of such rivers is the Stviga River. It flows among the vast massifs of wild forests and marshes along the border of the Gomel and Brest regions, in the center of Polessye and flows into Pripyat.Tributaries of Pripyat - Ptich and Sluch are very popular for tourists.These rivers are quite extensive, and they can make many-day trips from central Belarus to Polessye. From the tributaries of Sozh, Iput and Besed are of high interest but there one must know that the most beautiful part of the river is in the exclusion zone after the accident at Chernobyl power plant and to and get permission for rafting on it is very difficult.

Neman is in great demand among the large rivers for kayaking in Belarus, It flows through beautiful, hilly places, often with forest along the river banks. You can also highlight Berezina. It goes along the Berezinsky biosphere reserve, among wild marshes and forests. But, it should be borne in mind that in those places, kayaking is paid and carried out only with the assistance of a reserve officer. Another large river is the famous Dnieper – the largest river in Belarus; and along the Sozh River – it is considered one of the cleanest among the great rivers of Europe. These rivers have a calm flow, considerable width and beautiful landscape beaches but the trips on these rivers for tourists are differ from the small ones.

Today in Belarus it is offered to ride on inflatable, plastic and frame-folded kayaks. Rent a kayak in Belarus will not be difficult, but remember that this should be done in advance!
