Moson Danube canoe trip

Come with us to know an alluvial country from the water level of Moson Danube
Trip date: Saturday, May 20, 2017

Departure time from Bratislava: 7:30AM

FOR THIS TRIP, IT IS NECESSARY TO REGISTER IN ADVANCE

Branch of the Danube River known as Moson Danube creates a so called “Little Wheat Island”, similarly to Slovak’s Little Danube creating what is called a “Big Wheat Island”. Complex of river branches creates a water way similar to inland delta of some big rivers. It is a land of wetland ecosystems and alluvial forests, which is the best to know directly from water surface. Rafting of canoe trip is an ideal way to show a diversity of plants and animals living here. Water birds, observed from water level using a raft or boat are less shy. Species such as Common Kingfisher (Alcedo atthis) or Common Sandpiper (Actitis hypoleucos) will be our constant companions throughout the whole trip. Moson branch of the Danube River offers an ideal canoeing opportunity, thanks to its crystal clear and swift water in narrower parts combined with slower flow of its broader parts. The river is rich with many interesting water plants either directly on the water surface, or on Danube’s banks.
