On arrival at Warsaw airport you will meet your zoologist escort and our local guide. We will travel to Bialoweiza village (5 hours) where we will have our evening meal at our accommodation, level – guest house (Unikat Pension / Wejmutka Pension) and relax ready to explore the ancient forests of Bialoweiza.
This next three days here in Bialoweiza National Park we will spend most of our time inside the national park looking for the wintering birds as well as tracking down some of the largest mammals in Europe. We will find the European bison at their winter feeding grounds in the morning as well as walking through the snow covered woodland watching the birds. The most commonly seen birds here are crested and coal tits, nuthatch, nutcracker, black woodpeckers, bullfinches, hawfinches crossbills and some of the rarer birds like pygmy owls, three-toed woodpeckers, white-backed woodpeckers and hazelhens. We will enjoy our evening meal in the accommodation, level – guest house (Unikat Pension / Wejmutka Pension) once again.
Today will be similar to yesterday as we continue to explore the park and the forests as well as searching the field for more bison as they are known to come into the farmers fields and eat their haystacks. Our evening meal will be at the accommodation, level – guest house (Unikat Pension / Wejmutka Pension) again.
Today we will do the same activities as the previous days. On one of the days we spend here we will pay a visit to the Special Protection Area with a local guide. In addition to the bison we will also be looking for Northern lynx, red foxes, Eurasian badgers, red deer, roe deer and many other mammal species. Our evening meal will be at our accommodation, level – guest house (Unikat Pension / Wejmutka Pension).
After breakfast today we will be transferred from Bialoweiza to Biebrza (3 hours). We will stop here at the lakes where we have a chance of seeing white-tailed sea eagles, rough-legged buzzards. We will eat our meals at our accommodation, level – guest house (Dobarz pension) which lies in the centre of a refuge for the largest deer species in the world. The elk (known as the moose in some countries) is a massive animal and one which is regularly seen here. We will walk into the meadows where we have a good chance of finding the elk on foot as well as walking along the riverside where we will find many Paleo-arctic passerines and maybe Eurasian beavers and Eurasian otters.
Today after breakfast we will drive along the elk wintering grounds on our way to Red Bog Reserve where we will track a pack of wolves. Our local guides are expert trackers and we should easily pick up the trail of the pack. Hopefully we will come across the pack which is very thrilling on foot. Later we will have traditional Polish food over a camp fire before coming back to the accommodation, level – guest house (Dobarz pension).
After our breakfast we will be transferred to Warsaw (4 hours) where sightseeing is an option or simply just relaxing in our accommodation, level 3 * (Fort Hotel / Villa Holiday Park / Hetman). Our lunch and evening meal will be at the accommodation.
Today you will be transferred in pre paid taxis to the airport in time to catch your return flight home.
