The main activities in Srebârna and surrounding villages are birdwatching, hiking and fishing. Lake Srebârna is the main destination for birdwatchers. Some of the best fishing is found at the village of Vetren, which lies on the Danube about 4km to the west. Tackle shops are few; you may have to bring your own kit or work through your guesthouse.

Walkers can take the rocky, relatively flat 4km-long ecotrail that starts from the beginning of Srebârna village and runs along the lake.
