Masurian Region called the Land of the Thousands Lakes is a fantastic place for all loving the wild nature. In this gently undulating landscape adorned with forests, lakes and rivers you may find lots of water birds including swans (UNESCO Biosphere Reserve) and one of the biggest number of storks world-wide. A variety of tracks would please hikers, bike riders as well as sailors and kayakers. During this 220 km bike tour you would have a chance to see those scenic views, discover the history of Masuria and people's hospitality. We would also see the old Prussian fortification, castles and palaces, visit Hitler's bunker from the WW II and a beautiful baroque monastery. But most of all we would ride through the picturesque routes of the Piska Forest and The Masurian Landscape Park.
