Fees and permits
Entry is free.
By kayak. If you don't have one, you can rent it - look for "Kajaki" or "Wypożyczalnia Kajaków" (kayaks, kayak rental). Some areas are accessible by foot or bicycle, but don't count on it, the terrain is very difficult to scale without some water vehicle. Motor boats are allowed only on Oder and Regalica.
The wildlife and old water gates.
You can't buy anything at Międzyodrze, do your shopping at towns on Oder or Regalica.
Bring your own food. You can fish (if you have permit).
Bring your own drink (or boil the water).
At nearby towns. There are some dry places where you can try pitching a tent, but they might be difficult to find. Leave no trace.
Always use safety equipment like life vests - it's huge and difficult area without any population, so any outside help might be problematic. Get a good map (so you can find your way through channel labyrinth) and mosquito repellent. Watch out for bigger boats on Oder and Regalica.
