UNESCO - the extraordinary nature of the Eastern Carpathians

International Biosphere Reserve

The "Eastern Carpathians" reserve is used to protect the natural heritage of Europe, it is here that the forests have largely retained their original character, and here also the main corridors intersect that allow the free movement of animals over long distances. The nature of the Polish Carpathians is over 320 species of birds, 2,000 species of beetles and 1000 species of butterflies, the fauna and flora of this nature reserve is made up of even tens of thousands of species of plants and animals. A canoeing trip down the San River will make you admire the diversity of the nature, so by choosing this destination you can be sure that you will have a journey full of surprises.


Canoeing in unspoiled nature

The San Valley has the most abundant flora and fauna of all European forests. The nature of the Eastern Carpathians is of great importance for the preservation of the natural heritage, as it is home to many rare and endangered species. The inaccessibility of this environment and the associated interaction with humans are of great importance and influence. All this creates an extremely complex and extensive system, which also abounds in microhabitats such as dead trees and caves inhabited by many animals, especially invertebrates. Such an environment is the foundation for the presence of many species. A trip along the San River is a great opportunity to admire the fascinating nature inaccessible to hikers. Canoeing in the picturesque Subcarpathian region is an extraordinary lesson in nature, full of views that are unique in everyday life. It is also a journey that helps to develop environmental education, which is a fundamental task of the UNESCO program "Man and the Biosphere". Just paddle and admire the San on a route that is breathtaking.
