Trail of the Great Masurian Lakes

People sometimes call this land the Masurian Sea, sometimes the Land of a Thousand Lakes. The largest and most popular 13 lakes of Masuria in the section from the towns of Pisz to Węgorzewo are connected by a network of navigable channels. It is a ready-made vacation idea. Nothing but to organize friends, get on a boat and spend a carefree week under sail!

The central part of Masuria forms the Great Masurian Lakes Trail, a waterway made up of bodies of water connected by canals. The trail is 132 kilometers long and crosses more than 20 lakes – including Poland’s largest Lake Śniardwy, the second largest in Poland, Lake Mamry with its sanctuaries of wild birds, the secluded Lake Nidzkie excluded from motorboat traffic, or the vast Lake Niegocin.

Such an extensive string of lakes, allowing all kinds of water tourism, and at the same time so varied, is a phenomenon on a European scale!
