Waniewo Things to Do

    The dictionary defines a punt as this: a flat-bottomed shallow boat, broad and square at both ends; spec. a long narrow boat of this kind propelled by means of a long pole thrust against the bed of a waterway, and used on inland waterways now mainly for pleasure.

    Such a simple definition fails to fully sell the punting experience. Imagine having to try and manoeuvre a large boat with a narrow stick (which often threatens to lodge in the mud and drag you into the water)....imagine fighting upstream with currents that always pull you back towards the same part of the bank that you have spent ten minutes fighting yourself free of...

    That's punting, and it's an activity best done in the quiet confines of the Narew marshes (as opposed to in Oxford or Cambridge's more public arenas).

    Waniewo is located about twenty miles south west of Bialystok. From Warsaw, take the Bialystok road. Once within thirty miles of Bialystok, start looking for signs for Lapy. Follow the road to Lapy. Waniewo is five miles form there.

    If you are coming on the train, take the Warsaw Bialystok line. There are regular trains along this route. Get off at Lapy. On Express trains it takes just over two hours.
