The river is surrounded by woods in upper reaches, flows through hills of Nízký Jeseník in middle reaches and its lower reaches is situated in swampy floodplain of Litovelské Pomoraví Protected Landscape Area. The Oskava empties into Morava near Olomouc. The Oskava is used as a source of water for two ponds – Dolní Libina Pond and Šumvald Pond.
