Nature tours (one-day trips)

The Bialowieza Forest Region is an interesting area, which includes one of the most precious forest complex in Europe – The Bialowieza Forest. It is a last natural, lowland forest  and the kingdom of the biggest European mammal – wisent (European bison). In addition to the Biebrza Swamps the artificial lake Siemianówka is the biggest waterbird sanctuary and paradise for ornithologists. By taking advantage of the network of routes and our experienced tour guides you can go for bloodless hunting and reach the most enchanting places in the Bialowieza Forest, see the wolf in its natural environment, deer during the rutting season and observe the life of nature.

We present you a few offers which in our opinion are the most interesting and can bring closer the nature of the Bialowieza Forest. Depending on your demands, we provide a tour guide with general knowledge, a specialist (for example an ornithologist) and a car with a driver.

In the Białowieża Forest there are places wrapped in mystery, full of legends and with emanating energy. These are called “The Places of Power”. We will try to visit these places and let you in on the secret. We begin the trip in the Palace Park where the place of Tsar`s former palace is a powerful source of energy. Then we go to a mysterious place in the forest – the former early medieval pagan temple. We know such places in other parts of the Bialowieska Forest. We set out on tour on foot or by bicycle.

WP4  Winter Animal Tracking - Wildlife Photography
Seasonal trip Duration of the tour: approximately 5 hours

Winter is a perfect season for tracking animals. Tracks of wolves, lynxes, boars, deer, roe deer, bisons and other animals are perfectly seen on the snow. We set out on a trip to the Bialowieza Forest with a licensed tour guide on foot, on skis or in a sleigh to the places where wild animals can be easily seen. By observing animals` tracks  we try to get to know as much as possible about their lives and capture images on the photos.

Seasonal trip from the middle of February to the end of September
Duration of the trip: approximately 3 hours

WP6  Visit the beavers` house
Seasonal trip from spring to autumn.
Duration of the trip: approximately 4 hours

We set out on a trip at dawn or at twilight in order to look for beavers. By building dams beavers banked up the water and created overflow areas in many places of the Bialowieza Forest. We will visit one of such places, watch dams, lodges and observe the natural environment altered by these animals. Beavers are timid but we will try to capture their image with the help of the camera. This will be a difficult task. We take photographs from a distance of several dozen metres in case of the bad visibility.
