Masuria means nature straight out of an old picture book: black forests, rolling hills and dreamy villages. Thousands of larger and smaller lakes glitter like jewels in the midst of extensive forests. Without a doubt, the Masurian Lake District is one of the most beautiful landscapes in Poland. A natural paradise for white storks. Here eels, pike and perch swim in the lakes and wolves, lynxes, raccoon dogs, bison and Polish horses, the so-called tarpans, roam the forests. The landscape is characterized by peaceful tranquility in huge primeval forests and nature parks, wide heath areas, crystal-clear rivers and lakes, and avenues that are more than a hundred years old. Environmental protection and green development are priorities here. So far, five landscape parks and numerous nature reserves have been established in this region. As the green lung of Poland, Masuria is rightly one of the most beautiful cycling regions in Europe.

The bike ride is the most attractive and active form of recreation. Thanks to our offer, our guests can get to know the warm hospitality of the people living here. With us you will discover the magic of Masuria with its mysterious corners.
