Ukiel lake is the biggest lake in Olsztyn. There are pensions, hotels and beautiful municipal beaches around tthe lake. The surroundings are green and beautiful and usually there are many attractions for kids.
Also during the summer and mostly during the weekends there will be amazing events to spend your day and relax.

Beautiful but dangerous, be aware that they can bite. You can rent a bicycle boat and make a round in the lake but be aware of the fast jet ski's :)
I was in the Hotel Yacht Club Tiffi twice that is located next to the Przystan Hotel. It is the only 5* Hotel in the lake and it is just an amazing place. I highly recommend this hotel for a weekend or even for a week.
The food is amazing and the view from the rooms is beautiful. See the picture below. There are not many rooms but recently they was expanding.
In case you are with kids, it might be better to book in Przystań Hotel and SPA that is exaclty next to the Yacht Club Tiffi Hotel.
The reason is that Przystan has a nice safe beach with access to the lake. The kids can play there while you are enjoying sun and coctails.
But please note that even if you don't stay to the hotel you can still go and sit to there so this is not a must.
Most of the activities and events are located in the other side of the lake. It is around 15 minutes walk from the hotels and you can also rent a bike. Bike rentals are just behind the hotel and is something that worth to do.
Discover the beautiful green surroundings and the beautiful beaches, relax and swim in the lake.
See how are the Summer Thursdays at the Yacht Club Tiffi Hotel.

Kayaking on Rawka or on Liwiec from Warsaw
Rawka River Kayaking
We recommend kayaking down the Rawka river due to its beautiful surroundings. Rawka flows through the Bolimowski Landscape Park. However, this is a difficult route because of the many obstacles on the river (like fallen trees, locks and etc.).
This route requiring from the kayaker readiness to carry their equipment.
The trip can start from Rawa Mazowiecka, and we recommended the particularly lovely section to Bolimów. Because Rawka flows into Bzura, you can finish at Moto Przystań or at the river's confluence with the Vistula.
