Masuria lake district

Masurian Lake District

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.

wunderschöne Reise
Die Reise führte uns durch eine zauberhafte und wunderschöne, abwechslungsreiche Landschaft. Die Tagestouren waren - dank e-Bikes - sehr gut zu bewältigen, Kartenmaterial und Routenbeschrieb hervorragend, Organisation und "Betreuung" bestens und zuvorkommend (auch für uns Individualreisende). Die Räder waren in gutem Zustand, inkl. praktischen Fahrradtaschen und die E-Bikes mit robustem Bosch-Motor ausgestattet.
