Rafting on the river Váh
Experience the change: Piešťany offers adrenaline!
Regional Tourism Organization Rezort Piešťany comes up with another activity to make tourist destination of Piešťany and its surroundings more attractive. From May, visitors of Piešťany will be able to sail the river Váh on three different routes. Rafting is suitable for everyone, even for beginners and families with children.
The Váh rafting season runs from the final day of April to the first week of October. The rafting trip organizers have created routes for not just water adrenaline enthusiasts, but also families with children and all those who want to relax in Pieštany while still having fun on the water and experience something new.
Piešťany has long been perceived primarily as healing centre for sick. Of course, this is the main mission of the spa. However, through our activities we hope to show a different side of the region, the one that is intended for active people of productive age and young people. Aside from treatment and regeneration options, the spa and its surroundings provide several alternatives for active amusement and entertainment for anyone looking to not only relax but also experience something new.Exploring nature from the water is an amazing and unique experience. We believe, that thanks to this, people will bring unforgettable memories from Piešťany and they will be happy to return to us again.
There will be three routes to choose from on the old arm of the river Váh: Sokolovce – Hlohovec, Nové Mesto nad Váhom – Piešťany and Jalšová – Hlohovec.
Rafting will be accessible in an inflatable or plastic canoe or raft, as well as on a paddleboard.
Prior to the cruise, each participant receives boating equipment after completing an initial briefing and registration. The first two hours of rafting take place before lunch, while the second two hours of rafting take place after lunch.
