It's nearly five years after I visited this majesty. Definitely worth a visit by bike. The signature of this beautiful national park. Drop by here if you want some tranquility.

One of the most natural regions in Poland, clean air and water, impressive forests. Very good river for canoeing, even for less experienced tourists. Wigry monastery and the Museum of Wigry National Park is worth to visit.

I used to make kayaking here during one day trip and also a few days trip. Every time it is awesome experience. It is quite cheap, good organized and you are so close to amazing nature. During kayaking you can buy food and also something strong :) Do not miss it being there!

The river through Suwalki is small compared with the Norwegian rivers - but it is nice and you can have a nice walk!

The river is awesome for kayaking. It leads through town and through a beautiful park. This is a great activity for a relaxing day.
