Kaszubski spokój

The Kashubian peace of mind route- be mesmerized by the characteristic landscape and exceptional beauty.

To fully appreciate the allure of Kashubia, it is worth going on a short trip, for instance to nearby Przywidz.

By taking this route you can experience beautiful and varied natural places like forests and lakes. Local farmers have their products and services available for purchase, such as organic eggs, mushrooms, honey, cheese, vegetables, they also rent bicycles, kayaks, or boats, offer horse riding, bathing in tubs, sauna, fishing, and much more.

The trip starts at the Głębokie Lake surrounded by forests and small villages with shady avenues of trees. They surround the street tightly, thus creating a canopy over it. It is a very characteristic element of the landscape of Kashubia. Currently, trees not only constitute an important barrier to noise, but they are also extremely valuable habitats for birds such as kites, buzzards, goldfinches, rollers, finches, insects like hermit beetles, lichens, as well as migration routes for bats. The most sturdy, wide-stretching, and oldest trees with hollows are exceptionally beautiful.

Due to numerous hills, quite specific climate caused by a higher level of the terrain in relation to, for example, Gdańsk, and the woody shield, the snow cover lasts longer here than in the neighbourhood. Kashubia is becoming a good place for such winter sports as cross-country and downhill skiing thanks to ski lifts and well-lit slopes.

Jezioro Klonowskie

The Klonowskie Lake is a calm, charming lake located between picturesque hills.



It is a perfect place for summer and winter activities and walks away from the hustle and bustle of large resorts. This area looks special during all seasons.  Go for a walk around the lake, and then sit on a blanket and just relax with a delightful book or a newspaper.

A walk along the lake will take you to the village of Klonowo Dolne. If you visit this area between the end of March and the middle of August, gaze up and look for storks in their nests. White storks readily take advantage of such a neighbourhood with thinly scattered farms, arable fields, and meadows. You will most likely see the birds either making a nest or wandering in the fields.

Jeziora Przywidzkie Duże i Małe

The Przywidzkie Lakes is two beautiful lakes Przywidzkie Wielkie Lake and the Przywidzkie Małe Lake surrounded by picturesque beach, pine and oak forests in the Kashubian Lake District



Once on the lake shore, you may either walk along the southern shore or take a shorter trip along the sunny northern shore. Before you go further, take a break on a vast, coastal clearing with benches and tables. It is a good place to take a rest, go for a picnic, camp, practice yoga.

Around both the Przywidzkie Wielkie Lake and the Przywidzkie Małe Lake, there are small, sandy beaches perfect for the enthusiasts of summer and winter swimming, but also there are kayak and boat rentals. From the Przywidzkie Wielkie Lake, it is worth visiting an island in the middle of it, a nature reserve protecting the beech and oak forest that the island is covered with.

If you keep going, you will get to a bridge across a canal between the lakes. Once you cross it, turn right onto the forest road leading along the holiday resorts that also offer many winter attractions. When the road approaches the Przywidzkie Małe Lake, you will see a pleasant view of Przywidz, with a brick church tower, the blue of the water and the sky and colourful trees. The Lakes are remarkably beautiful in spring with lush greenery but also in October, with all the colours of autumn. Take a painting kit with you to transfer such lovely views onto canvas.
