Section length: 12 km (+8 km Lake Krępsko)
On the Brda River, there are numerous signs and a fantastic tourist infrastructure. The Brda’s section from Dolinka to Przechlewo is considered easy. It definitely is a section which abounds in lakes. When the wind is strong, mind the rather big waves. They may get unpleasant. To be safe, it is best to stay close to the shore. Set off from the kayak marina in Dolinka, which is located right next to the place where Brda flows into Lake Szczytno (300 m). You paddle onto the lake – a broad ribbon waterbody. On the right, in a small bay, there is a camping area in Pakotusko. After 4 km, you reach Rzewnica – a tourist complex as well as a kayak and yacht marina. The facility is located on the right shore of the lake. Past Rzewnica, there is a narrowing of the lake. After about 1 km, you reach the southern part of Lake Szczytno, from which the 8 km long route to Lake Krępsko begins. You paddle for 3 km and reach the lake’s narrowing. On the right, you pass a peninsula behind which you can see an embankment and the national road Bydgoszcz – Koszalin (DK 25) which runs on it. After you paddle below a small bridge, you will find yourself on Lake Krępsko. The lake is surrounded with beautiful pine and beech forests. On the lake’s deeply indented peninsula, there is a preserved ringfort dating back to 8th-9th century. On the waterbody, there is the only marina in Gwieździn (located on the right side of the shore.
If you want to continue your trip down the Brda River, starting from Rzewnica, after passing the lake’s narrowing, turn left, pass the Zamkowa Island and paddle into the initially very hard-to-find pass between Lakes Szczytno and Szczycienko. Further on, go past a road bridge between Zawada and Szczytno. Past the bridge, there is a pass to Lake Końskie. At the end of the waterbody, on the left, there is a large camping area and an OSiR (sports and leisure centre) rest area in Przechlewo.
