Canoe rental?

We want to visit the lake district, and have heard about canoing in the Augusustow canal. We might want to do this for a day, maybe two. Where do we rente canoes? Are there recommended places to stay? We travel by public transport.

Just wondering whether you got round to canoeing. And if so, how was it?

The weather prognosis was unpromising, so we took a tourist boat on the lake instead. It went through only the first lock, and apparently, no tourist boats go further. The area is nice, and we saw many birds and what I believe was a sea-eagle, although the district is far from the sea. Supposedly, there are restoration works on the Augustow canal on the Belarus side. So in the future, it might be possible to take a boat along the whole length of the canal.

Thanks, Brainspin.

If you're after birdwatching, aim for early spring when the birdies come back from their winter homes in the south. Or September, when they pack off to escape the cold.

The last time we got near the Belarus border - by car - the Polish border guards had a serious Q&A session with us. Will be nice when the waterways open up all the way. You can already canoe into Lithuania (weather permitting).

I guess Belarus will not forever remain a paranoid dictatorship :)
