The Westpomeranian Region is the land of a thousand lakes, spread mainly across several lakelands. These provide excellent opportunities for active recreation in pristine natural settings and uniquely varied landscapes. Their captivating beauty, coupled with a relentless plethora of flora and fauna, makes the Westpomeranian Region one of the most attractive tourist destinations in Poland. It is a perfect setting for kayaking trips.

The lakes are home to numerous species of fish, including such notable ones as trouts, graylings and bull-trouts. The lakelands are also inhabited by a variety of water and marsh birds such as Grebes, seagulls, Common Moorhens, Mute and Whooper Swans, herons, wild ducks, goose, storks, cormorants and cranes. Among curiosities to see are Lobelia lakes, oligotrophic clear-water lakes and relict plant areas.

Those who like to indulge in diving are delighted by Lake Drawsko, Siecino and Pile. By choosing one of the lakes of more than 1000 hectares surface area, such as Dąbie, Miedwie, Myślibórz, Drawsko, Wielim, Lubie or Pile – all of which provide unique opportunities for sailing – sailors can embark on an interesting adventure on our lakes and waterways.
