Boating holidays on the Lakes of Poland

Discover an original and little known destination for boating holidays: Poland!

In north-eastern part of the country, on the border of the Russian enclave of Kaliningrad, stands Masuria or 'the land of a thousand lakes'. The area casino stretches from north to south and offers lakes, canals and rivers, fringed by magnificent pine, oak and birch forests. Among river cruising insiders, Masuria is considered as a true paradise for nature lovers. The whole region abounds with rich and varied wildlife, which you can spot from your self drive barge.

The area has also a rich history, from the Teutonic Knights in the 13th century to the Second World War. Aboard your Pénichette®, you will certainly admire ruined castles perched on the hilltops, especially those at Gizycko, Worgorzeno and Ryn.
