SORKWITY- Bienki - Spychowo - - Krutyn - Nowy Most - Kamien - RUCIANE NIDA
Krutynia is one of the most scenic low-lying trails of Europe. The route leads through the Piska Forest and The Masurian Landscape Park. The kayaking course runs down the Krutynia River as well as across the Great Masurian Lake District - called The Land of the Thousands Lakes and along the smaller rivers. Scattered along the banks is a well-developed network of riverside hostels and campsites. Such trips down Krutynia River are a huge attraction of the region, and the river itself is considered the most picturesque kayaking route in Poland. That's why it remains very popular with lowland kayakers and is thus the most visited route in Masurian Region. To a great extent, primeval nature has been preserved here. Anybody who likes to rest and relax while enjoying wildlife should take a trip down The Krutynia River.
