For wanderers

Przehyba - for those who are eager for mountain excursions

For more demanding hikers, we offer a trip to Przehyba - a place where you can admire the views of the Pieniny, Tatra Mountains and the Gorce range.

1,200 km of slopes and trails

How beautiful and picturesque the Sądecczyzna can boast as much as 1,200 km of routes and bicycle routes. Their great advantage is their diversity. If we want the whole family to spend a Sunday afternoon on bikes, and the route is to be gentle and safe, there are more and more of them every year. People who need a considerable dose of adrenaline will also find something for themselves, especially in the paths leading to the picturesque peaks of the Beskid Mountains.

For young and old

We can start our cycling adventure from many points. The main part of the Carpathian Cycling Trail or one of its branches, as well as EuroVelo11. The whole thing can be divided into three sections, where we start first:

from Leluchów bordering Slovakia to Nowy Sącz
from Nowy Sącz through Łososina Dolna to Wytrzyszczki
or on the other shore of Lake Rożnowskie from Nowy Sącz through Rożnów to Wytrzyszczki

Mountains and lakes

It is worth going along the routes along the Rożnowskie Lake to learn a bit about the Inca treasures. Our proposal is a section of 31 km. Start Gródek Nad Dunajcem, direction Zakliczyn - Gródek Nad Dunajcem. On the way, we come across the oldest temple in the Sądecki region. However, to get to it, you need to use the ferry that moors right next to the castle in Troposzyn. Other interesting places will be the boulevards of the Tarnowski Castle, the Stadnicki manor, the church on the hill, the ruins of the Zawisza Czarny Castle and the Rożnowska Dam.

There are also many other routes, for example from Muszyna which requires a route of 60 km. However, we encourage you to set off from Rytro along the surrounding trails, through forests to beautiful peaks, eg PTTK Przehyba or milder variants along the asphalt road towards Stary Sącz.

Not having a bike is not a problem!

Rent a bike with us

Activity in the Sądeckie region is developing very quickly, which is why more and more often we meet numerous bicycle rentals - also in RYTERSKIE. An alternative for slightly more lazy, but still eager cycling adventures, we encourage you to rent electric bikes. Their range when driving with power assistance is as much as 40-50 km. The maximum speed is 25 km / h

Beskid Sądecki looks beautiful, not only from mountain trails!

Rafting on a raft

It is worth exploring the Poprad Landscape Park, also from the side of Poprad itself. It has numerous attractions, including, first of all, rafting. It starts in Piwniczna Zdrój, which can be reached by going towards Mnisko, while its final section is at the foot of the castle hill in Rytro.
Everything takes place on special boats with a slight draft of up to 9 cm, which allows you to run off even when the water level is not high. The rafter is responsible for the rudder, assisted by a special oar called a perch. The time ranges from 1.5 to 2.5 hours depending on the weather conditions.

Canoeing and pontoon trips

Both pontoon trips and kayaks are becoming more and more popular. However, they are more dangerous than boat trips. The more extreme ones set up a three-day rafting trip with two overnight stays anywhere between Stara Ľubovňa in Slovakia and the mouth of the Dunajec River near Nowy Sącz.
The most popular route is Muszyna - Żegiestów, which we cover from 1.5 to 4 hours. Rafting does not require special physical preparation, but remember that safety is a priority. A dinghy is a safer option due to its lower immersion depth and greater stability. The kayak allows us to fight with the water stream once, calm at times, to surprise us again with the speed and dose of adrenaline.

Whitewater kayaking track

Wietrznice near Łąck is a place on the Dunajec River, where there is a fast current. European and even world rank events are organized there. We have the possibility to rent it by the hour, organize competitions, integration events, etc. On the 350 m slalom section there is 3 m height variation. We have obstacles of varying difficulty there to overcome. Every year it attracts more and more lovers of wild waters. For some, this place is the beginning of a professional career.
An interesting fact is the extreme level of Aquakanioning - it is also an element of training rescuers GOPR, TOPR and special units of the Border Guard. Groups of Mountain rescuers and Tatra Mountains Volunteer Rescue Service also undergo a test here.

The neighborhood is full of historic sites!

History of the castle in Rytro

Initially, a wooden building was erected in the 13th century. It was a watchtower at the customs house on the Poprad River. The oldest brick part is a cylindrical tower from the end of the 13th century. Although it is not known to whom the castle was built. In the first half of the fourteenth century, the building was certainly the property of the kingdom.
King Władysław Łokietek, his daughter Elżbieta, Kazimierz Wielki and Queen Jadwiga were here. It is known from the records from 1580 that the castle was badly damaged. In the 1970s, archaeological and conservation works were carried out.

There are also stories about treasures connected with Rytro. Jan Długosz mentions his hiding, and apparently the Poor Clares from Stary Sącz showed him the testament of Piotr Wydźga, in which he informs about the hiding of gold in the castle. Of course, many were looking for treasures, but no one managed to do so.

The royal castle in Nowy Sącz

Dated 1350-1360, erected by Casimir the Great at the fork of two rivers: Dunajec and Kamienica. She could admire him, among others Queen Jadwiga. Jan Długosz stayed here in the 15th century. Unfortunately, the castle burnt down in 1522, but it was rebuilt in the 16th - 17th centuries in the Renaissance style. Successively destroyed by the Swedes. Rebuilt again, this time partly by the Austrian authorities during the partitions, to serve as a police office. Unfortunately, this is not the end of the unfortunate fate of the castle, in 1813 a flood washed the west wing, which fell to the Dunajec. In 1838 it was converted into a military barracks, and in 1846 the government sold the castle to the town. Partial reconstruction took place in 1905. In 1938, the Museum of the Sądecki Region was opened there, but due to the outbreak of the war it was completely destroyed by 1945. Finally, in 1959 it was reconstructed according to the plan from the 17th century.

Muszyna Tower

Muszyna "Baszta" built on a steep slope above the Poprad bend. Its creation dates back to 1390. It was then the residence of the episcopal starosts of the "Muszyna State" until 1474, when it was significantly damaged.
Its complete degradation took place during the partitions, where you can also find a mention of Italian stonemasons building a railway tunnel in Żegiestów, blowing up some of the walls in search of treasures. Only fragments of the walls have survived to modern times. Today, work is underway to expand the castle and restore it to its former glory. The commencement of works is planned for the nearest period, and its project can be seen on the websites of the Muszyna authorities and the local yearbook.

It is unusual, because a visit to this place takes us decades back to the market square and streets that reflect the character of the small-town buildings of nineteenth-century Galicia. The objects that make up them have been faithfully recreated on the basis of old plans, drawings and preserved markets in Małopolska towns, including Stary Sącz, Czchów, Lanckorona, Ciężkowice or Krościenko, and equipped in accordance with historical records.
