Masuria lake district

Masuria

Home of Forests and Lakes.

Masuria is unbelievably beautiful: The country of 3000 lakes and home to millions of white storks. Huge native forests and nature parks, wide heather plains, wonderful clean rivers and crystal clear lakes are part of the scenery, as are century old avenues. On the bicycle tour and during the extensive programme with boating, canoeing and many sightseeing tours you discover a country young at heart and the hospitality of the people living here. Be impressed by the unusually rich varieties of flora and fauna. Summer meadows gleaming in all possible colours catch your attention as well as the many bird species, first of all of course the “heraldic bird of Mazuria”, the white stork. The people were very careful with the nature of Masuria. So the home of the poets Siegfried Lenz and Ernst Wiechert is until now the green lung of Europe. Breathe deeply: welcome in Mazuria.

Eine sehr schöne Tour
Der Reiseleiter Paul war klasse! Die Touren wunderschön. Allein die Räder und ein Hotel, in dem wir zum Glück nur 1 Nacht waren, gibt Anlass zu negativer Kritik.

Anke Tammen answered:
Es freut uns sehr, dass Ihnen die Tour so sehr gefallen hat und Sie auch mit unserem Reiseleiter-Service zufrieden waren. Gerne leiten wir Ihr Lob an Paul weiter - da wird er sich freuen. Es ist nicht ganz so leicht für einen Radveranstalter, in jedem Etappenort Hotels zu finden, die Kunden für nur eine Übernachtung akzeptieren, egal auf welcher Route. Und dann kommt es leider auch vor, dass ein Hotel etwas abfällt. Schön, dass Sie darüber hinwegsehen können und Ihre Radreise in schöner Erinnerung behalten.
