Kamienica flows out of the Lake Kamieniczno near the town of Gliśno. Then it runs through the village Tuchomie to cross to the field and at the end hide in the forest. There are many obstacles and beautiful fast flowing rapids on the way to Kamieniec, and further on the way to Gałąźnia Mała, where it falls into Słupia as its left tributary at the hydroelectric power station.
DIFFICULTY OF THE ROUTE AND CAMPING CONDITIONS:
Kamienica route is quite burdensome, but obstacles are easy to overcome and you have to carry the kayak sporadically and for short distances. River requires special experience because of the fast current and a whole lot of surprises.
Do not select double kayaks - especially in the upper part of the Kamienica, it would be a misunderstanding ... For the single kayak, we recommend to take a shirt.
The tourist industry has not yet reached this corner of our beautiful region. In Tuchomie you may be able to bivouac at the Center for International Meetings and at school. Then you will camp in the forest in the wild (space for 34 tents). In Galaznia Mała there is beautiful campsite convenient even for a large encampment. However, you will not have any sanitation, and the nearest shop is approx. 2 km away, in Galaznia Wielka.
DESCRIPTION OF THE ROUTE:
It is not a river for the fledgling rookies in doubles. Only starting from the village of Kamieniec they could try their chances in a double kayak but only at high water levels. Apart from that the river is suitable for single canoes and canoeists with experience. This section can discourage novices and even scare them off. Especially the section from hydroelectric power station to trout farm in Kamieniec is very fast and varied with trees and rocks protruding from the river. A moment of inattention or ill maneuver and you will end up in rushing cold water. You can continue canoeing down the river Słupa from the village Gałąźnia Mała to Ustka.
