The area was formed during the last glacial age. It is covered with low hills and more than 900 post-glacial lakes. With 1,200 km² of dense spruce and pine forest, the area is one of the biggest forests in Poland and Central Europe. Since 1996 part of the area is a national reserve, covering 129.81 km². Approximately 30% of the area is inhabitated by Kociewiacy.
