Heart of Bialowieza Forest – the Strict Reserve

For those, who want to experience the untouchable

The Strict Reserve of Bialowieza National Park is the place where people go to experience natural place, accepting it as it is. Some scientist say that this is a “window into the past” which helps us to understands truly wild place that people haven’t put their hands on. Naturalness of this place was the main reason to give it the status of World Heritage Site UNESCO. This forest constantly persists for over 10 000 years. Although wild it is kind enough to reveal some of its secrets. Proud representatives of eight tree species hold the height record of Europe and some of them are even highest in the world. Our guide will help you to see the unrevealed secrets. Especially for you we will share our passion for this place. All year round we will take you on unforgettable birdwachtching and wildlife observations. We adjust our offer to the current season. In the spring you will see beautiful carpets of flowers, in autumn during deer’s rut you can hear the most extraordinary sound of nature and autumn is also the season when amazing mushrooms let us admire their beauty. All year round this is the best place to see woodpeckers (especially very rare white-backed and three-toed woodpecker). Standard tour takes about 3 hours. For specialist (foresters, biologist, ecologist) it is possible to get a permit from the national park authority for an extend tour. Then the tour takes between 6 to 8 hours.
