Masuria is not only the land of "thousands of lakes", but it is a region of mixed woods, swamps and peat bogs. The huge areas of forests, wide surfaces of clear water, magnificent landscapes of post-glacial hills and favorable climatic conditions support attractiveness and beauty of the land.
Nature here, because of little industry and few inhabitants, has preserved its natural wealth and even areas of natural wildness.
Forests here are rich in blackberries, raspberries, wild strawberries and mushrooms. A varied landscape allows for attractive walks along exciting tourist paths. A specially prepared plan, known as "Green Lungs of Poland", foresees transformation of the region into ecologically unpolluted area. Many forest areas, national parks and nature reserves are open to tourists for healthy walks and picking some forest plant life.
Some of the areas in Gizycko District were included in the European Ecological Natura 2000 Network. There are Ostoja Borecka (SCI), Dobskie Lake(SPA), Borecka Forest(SPA), Nietlickie Swamp(SPA).
