Meanwhile, it turns out that many of our fears have no basis. Currently, we can take advantage of a wide range of family-friendly hotels (e.g. at the Sulejowski Lagoon), which offer very attractive prices (including free accommodation for small children and big discounts for bigger ones), the possibility of taking pets with them, and even sports equipment rentals. Their additional advantage is easy access (they are located near Lodz and Warsaw). What is more - they are located in extremely picturesque places, far from the polluted city air and street noise. Zalpine terrain and sandy beaches provide ample space for outdoor activities. So - let us abandon our fears and take advantage of the charms of the passing summer.

Canoeing - why not?

To practice kayaking we use a small light boat with two paddles. It's worth knowing that there are several types of kayaks: recreational, tourist (especially useful by the sea and in the mountains) and sport ones (e.g. regatta, mountain slalom and mountain downhill). They differ mainly in the material they are made of. For a weekend trip with the family, a recreational kayak will suffice (especially when we will be swimming on the lake). We should also absolutely have a life jacket with us. And - basically - nothing else.
Everything can be learned
