Kayaking trail on the rivers of Kumiałka and Brzozówka
It is necessary to carry the gear over weirs in Korycin (8,8 kilometre of the trail) and by the Mielniki village (11,2 kilometre of the trail). The trail goes further along the Brzozówka river (31,7km). Lower section of the river is abundant with aquatic plants, what may prove to be a difficulty for kayakers. As a reward for such problems, the trail will provide a great adventure on a natural river bed full of meanders, rich with wildlife. In the second half of the year passing this trail may be compared to a trip through the Amazonia forests. While the level of water is high, the low footbridges around Kolonia Brzozowa village (Syberia) may prove to be a difficulty. On 30th kilometre of the trail, near the village of Karpowicze, there is a water reservoir fit for swimming and a place to camp. The village has a grocery store.
