Section length: 27.4 km (+1.6 km Lake Karsińskie (the Brda River), Swornegacie)
The Chocina is a left tributary of the Brda. Its total length is 45 km. The river is considered an easy one and there are no obstacles but, due to meanders, you may feel quite dizzy when paddling along it. It is a wild river with clean water. The trip begins in Zielona Chocina at the kayak marina. You can also set off from the Binduga village (6 km upstream of the recommended starting point). The section from Binduga to Zielona Chocina is monotonous, with a meadow landscape and a slow current. From time to time, you are forced to get out of your kayak to get past low-hanging footbridges. From Zielona Chocina onwards, the route leads through forest and meadow areas. It is a really winding river. This is the character of the route along which you paddle until Chociński Młyn. There is a portage near the dam on the remains of an old saw mill. You walk along a busy road on the right side. After launching your kayaks, you pass a kayak marina. Further on, a section full of twists and turns begins. Numerous meanders and bends – it could sometimes seem that kayakers take a parallel route. The river is deep – up to 1.5 m – and at the same time has a peaceful current. Near Kokoszka, you paddle into the last, outlet section of the river. On the way, depending on the water level, you pass under low footbridges or you must portage. Amid the boggy meadows and rushes, the Chocina flows into Lake Karsińskie. There is an open waterbody ahead of you, which you have to paddle trough. Watch out as water may be quite rough. To be safe, it is best to stay close to the shore. After 1.6 km of paddling through the lake, you reach the marina in Swornegacie. It is located on the right shore, just before the lake’s narrowing, near the place where the Brda River flows out of it.
