National Park "Warta Estuary" is located at the western Polish border, in a part called Gorzowski Basin.

On meadows and pastures about 500 plants grow. At the same time it is a great place for nature lovers, especially for bird watchers, as the park is a real bird kingdom. When choosing a trip it's worth to bring your binoculars or telescope.

Park trails can be explored on your own (yellow or black signs) or thematic trails near the park (around Słońsk) - eg Corncrake trail (yellow), with a length of 21 km or the Greylag route (red), with a length of 7 km. Both routes are recommended at high water level in the flood, when there is no possibility of entry into the park. There is also a woodpecker trail, which is a nature-educational path with a length of approximately 5 km, with knowledge spots presenting interesting natural phenomena and activities of the national park.

In the park you can use the two bicycle paths, that partially overlap with hiking paths.

Visitors are also able to take advantage of the observation tower in Chyrzyno (a height of about 20 m). Open on weekdays from 7:30-15:30. Admission to the tower is paid.

In the park, you can burn fires in designated areas.

Immediately prior to coming to the park, you might want to check the park's website for information on the water level and which ways are usable. It is worth to remember to bring some warm clothes and appropriate footwear. In autumn and winter, it is good to carry a thermos of hot tea.
