There are too many attractions in Masuria for anyone to be able to enjoy all of them during one holiday: thousands of lakes and water routes, yacht marinas, taverns for sailors, friendly fishing villages and equestrian clubs. Crystal-pure waters promise a pleasant swimming experience, and the wealth of fish species tempt anglers.
Most lakes in this region are small and medium size, hidden deep in the forest, with high banks or waterfronts overgrown with rushes and teeming with various aquatic bird species. Some of them, like Lakes Śniardwy and Mamry, are very large. Others, like Lake Wigry, have fantastic shapes. Still others, like the small Lake Jaczno, enchant visitors with unique colour of their waters (malachite green).
Not far from the Masurian lakes is the Suwałki Region Lakeland with its smaller but equally charming lakes and picturesque water–courses. This region is ideal for those who seek peace and quiet. Here you can still find uninhabited islands, perhaps try your hand at the life experienced by Robinson Crusoe!
