The secret life of a female photographer

Słowiński National Park and its endless dunes

I love Poland in spring. If you’re lucky with the weather, you will enjoy the beautiful green nature everywhere you go. There are so many unspoilt places to visit! This time we’ve been blessed with sunny days and we are trying to make the most of them, so when Basia and Marko invited us on a trip to Łeba we couldn’t refuse.

Łeba [ˈwɛba] is a small town in Northern Poland, near the sea. It is known for Słowiński National Park, which is located next to it. The park is home to “moving dunes”, a curiosity of nature. They are being blown by the wind inland 3 to 10 meters every year. The dunes can be as high as 30 metres and sometimes they remind me of a desert.

To get there you preferably need a car. You will get to Łeba and from there follow the signs to “Słowiński Park Narodowy”. You will then need to leave your car at the car park and either walk to the dunes (almost 6km walk one way) or rent a bike or jump on a little electric car. Have some cash prepared. The bike costs 9PLN/hour and the bus 15PLN/one way per person. I would recommend you to rent a bike as the road to the dunes is very pleasant. It leads through the pine forest which smells beautifully.
