French specialist in canal boat holidays since 1982

The charm of the loop route of Great-Poland (starting from Slesin) lays in its diversity. For a while, you sail on canals, afterwards on a fast flowing river, then on a river with locks, then again on canals, to end on a marvelous lake. This loop offers all sorts of sensations: wild nature with breathtaking landscapes on one side, interesting hydro-technical installations and towns worthy of visits, on other side.
From Ślesin, aboard your boat, your stay in the river will start in the best way. The softness, the calm and the landscapes of the area will plunge you in the best conditions to discover Slésin and its surroundings. Savor the specialties of the local traditional restaurant, the outdoor physical activities or the architectural legacy bequeathed by Napoleon Bonaparte, who, during a short stay, built the famous "Arc de Napoleon". During your trip, visit the old town of Bydgoszcz, located along the river Brda, a city known for its canals known as Venice or Amsterdam ... You will soak up the omnipresent history of Poland when you visit the famous "Mouse Tower" Kruszwica. Relax for a swim in Lake Goplo where the first Polish princes founded the country. Finally, do not hesitate to linger in the beautiful city of Poznań, a city rich in several hundred years of history, the ancient capital of Poland, with its many vestiges of past glories.
