Active recreation

The town at Lake Niegocin is the centre of water tourism and iceboating. The extensive water surface and flat banks provide excellent conditions for sailing. The lakes are full of white and multi-coloured sails, yachts, kayaks, water-cycles, and numerous windsurfers. Frequent sailing events and races are organised in the summer, and iceboating competitions in the winter. The town is a water trail hub. From here, one can set off to the south through Mikołajki to Ruciane-Nida and to the north to Węgorzewo. There are numerous marinas and white fleet ports on lake banks. Individual tourists and groups can board any of the Mazurian Fleet and privately-owned pleasure cruisers.


Giżycko is one of Poland’s largest holiday and tourist resorts, and thanks to its popularity among tourists, it has been dubbed “the summer capital of Poland.” Guest are awaited by the many restaurants and cafes, accommodation suited to every budget with hotels, guesthouses, holiday centres, campsites and holiday houses as well as a rich infrastructure for sports and leisure.


The appealing natural surroundings provide an ideal base for all forms of active recreation, and particularly cycling and canoeing, walking, excursions, jogging, horse riding, mushroom picking and fishing. What is definitely a unique attraction are the beavers residing in Borecki Forest. One can meet them eye to eye at the exhibition enclosure in Wolisko.
