Kayaking around Warmia and Mazury
Warmia and Mazury is a Mecca for water sports enthusiasts. The abundance of lakes, natural water canals and rivers create perfect conditions for organising a several hours long trip or a few days long canoeing trip. There is almost 1,200 km of kayak routes, located among untouched nature, with lots of wild corners that can only be admired from a kayak perspective.
You can choose rafting on the most famous trail of the Masurian Krutynia River, go along the Łyna river – the longest in the region, while experienced canoeists can go rafting along the route of the Dajna River, which leads through the nine lakes of the Mrągowo Lake District.
Krutynia River trail
The Krutynia River waterway begins its run in the Mrągowo Lake District, then goes through the Masurian Plain, an abundantly forested region where the river flows through the Puszcza Piska Forest and then into the beautiful lands of the Great Masurian Lake District.
While sailing on the trail of the “Queen of Polish Rivers” you will go through the Masurian Landscape Park and several reserves, observing the enormous diversity of nature and the variability of passed landscapes, which creates a unique opportunity to observe rich fauna and flora.

The Dajna River Trail
The 36 km long canoe trail is intended, (not only) for experienced canoeists and people focused on overcoming difficulties during rafting, due to several inconvenient transfers. The difficulties on the trail are compensated by picturesque landscapes overgrown with lush vegetation, which you will see as you sail across the nine lakes of the Mrągowo Lake District.

Trail of the Łyna River
Łyna is the longest river in the region and the eleventh longest river in Poland (264 km). If you want to visit Olsztyn, the capital of Warmia and Mazury, you can literally enter the city centre in a canoe and from there follow the trail towards Bartoszyce, visiting cities such as Dobre Miasto and Lidzbark Warmiński on the way.
The landscape through which Łyna flows changes as you cross borders of geographical macroregions. Sailing through the lakes of Persing, Small and Great Kiernoz, Łańskie and Ustrych, you will be traveling in a picturesque, wide valley surrounded by beautiful forests of the Puszcza Napiwodzko-Ramucka Forest.
