Greate Masurian Lakes – a miracle of the nature!

Mazury na rowerze

The land of the Great Masurian Lakes is not only the world of sailors, but is also a paradise for cyclists and “must be” on the cycling map of Poland. Beautiful yachts can be admired in the light of morning sun from comfortable resorts located on the shores of the lake.

We invite you for a bicycle journey among the forests and lakes to the sailing villages – Sztynort, Giżycko, Mikolajki and Ruciane-Nida, which cannot be missed on the Masurian routes. You will also enjoy less known and cozy nooks of the lakes Bełdany and Śniardwy, Jagodne, Mamry and beautiful Krutynia river. On the route there is a lot of attractions such as: Boyen Fortress, wild horses and crossing a lake with a rope ferry and many others activities.

For a sake of your comfort and safety, the routes we propose lead along quiet roads with low traffic or on bicycle routes where traffic is completely off. During the trip your legs will take some rest – it will be an occasion to admire Masurian region from a water perspective. On a one-day kayaking trip you will enjoy one of the most beautiful river of Poland and Masuria – Krutynia.

After cycling we offer you relaxation in carefully selected guesthouses and two- and three-star hotels. Some are located in sailing towns that provide additional attractions, others are located away from resorts. Most of them are situated on the shores of lakes to enjoy summer swiming. Some of the hotels provide access to the SPA zone.
