KAMIANKA BUZKA – STARYI DOBROTVIR | 18 km (Ukraine)

Kayaking is possible throughout the year on single and double kayaks. The width and depth of the river course below Kamianka Buzka gradually increase, the formation of side branches and offshoots (Zabuzhzhya, Prybuzhany) is observed, which in most cases merge with the main course. At 84 km, in the vicinity of Ruda, the Western Bug falls into the reservoir of the Dobrotvirska Power Plant and flows through it for 11 km.

The main obstacles within the boundaries of the reservoir are: tourist platforms (Ruda), which protrude from the left bank for 150 m; a pontoon bridge in the village of Perekalky. Thewidth of the reservoir increases to 700 m in the vicinity of Staryi Dobrotvir; the average depth is 2.3 m, but in some places it is more than 4 m. During your trip, take into account the windspeed, which can cause the formation of high lateral waves. The best starting point is 76 km, on the right bank next to the road bridge between Kamianka Buzka and Zabuzhzhya. At 93 km there is a controlled reservoir dam, the end of the segment. Mandatory mooring on the left bank, along whichan asphalt road
runs.
