One of the very interesting regions we have recently visited is the vicinity of Swornegacie in northern Poland. It is a very beautiful and scenic part of Bory Tucholskie with endless forests, clean rivers and lakes with an amazing water color. There are many routes for tourists. The surroundings can be traversed on foot, by bike, on horseback, by canoe, boat or sailboat. Everyone will find something for himself!
