In order to get to the launching site, head towards the area known as the TRIPLE JUNCTION. From here, the kayaking route borders Belarus. We pass through unique natural areas specially protected by Poland, Ukraine and Belarus. It is extremely interesting in terms of history. In Orchówek, you can see the remains of a railway bridge destroyed during the Second World War leading to the railway station “Włodawa” on the other side of the Bug. From your kayak, you can see the Sanctuary of Our Lady of Consolation in Orchówek located on a high slope and a magnificent panorama of Włodawa. On this segment, the Włodawka river flows into the Bug.

Moving further along the route, you enter the area of the former estates of the Zamoyski family. Here the remains of the starch factory in Suszno with a brick chimney rising on the slope of theformer factory can be seen. The culmination of the segment is the picturesque Różanka, where there was a magnificent palace, the seat of the Zamoyski family. What remains today are slowlydecaying farm buildings and a magnificent park with majestic monuments of nature. Information about the remarkable Zamoyski family can be found in the Organist’s House – the House of History and Folk Tradition in Różanka.
