Straight from Warsaw we head to our first destination – Białowieża village. After arrival and check in you have some time to rest and make yourself comfortable in a beautiful local wooden guest house in the heart of the primeval forest. In the evening at dinner time you will discover delicious traditional local cuisine.

The day starts at the dawn by tracking the bison in the wild. Guided by a local environmental expert we transfer by car to different parts of the forest to find the herd, then observe and take pictures.

After returning, breakfast and some rest, we continue to discover the strict reserve of Białowieża National Park – the oldest and most precious heart of the forest, accessible only with licenced guides.

In the evening you will have a delicious local dinner in the most prestigious restaurant in the region, Tsarska. It is located in an old building of the railway station built in 1903 for the Tsar Nicholas II. Its present character and the interior refer to tsarist times. This unique place attracts both gourmets of Polish-Russian cuisine as well as enthusiasts of the forest.

After early breakfast we move to Biebrza National Park – the biggest Polish national park. On the way we visit multicultural magic places of the region: the Land of Open Shutters or the Narew riverbank.

At the end of the day, after checking in, there is a time for walking or relaxing in a guest house. In the evening we will have traditional Polish dinner in the local restaurant.

Today you will discover the biggest national park in Poland – Biebrza National Park. During the 6 hours guided walking tour along the heavily meandering River Biebrza we will see the largest peat-bog complex in Poland, called Biebrza marshes. They create a unique mosaic of wetland habitats, which preserve multiple rare plant, bird and animal species. Biebrza Swamps are considered to be one of the most important Central Europe’s bird refuge for water-mud oriented birds. It is also the largest elk refuge in the country, but you may as well spot here animals like wolves, otters and beavers.

The day ends in Warsaw, where we return late in the evening.
