On a wolf trail

in the Bialowieza Forest

The Bialowieza Forest is inhabited by 3-4 wolf packs (each pack consists of 10-15 individuals and occupies 20-30 thousand hectares). There are also 3-5 (maybe 8) adult lynxes. The territory of a female lynx is about 10 thousand hectares, and that of a male up to 25 thousand hectares.
Their paths often cross with ours. Of course, you’ll need a bit more luck to meet them “eye to eye” (wolves usually cover more than 20 km a day). But our knowledge of the area can help. However, there is a lot of information to be gleaned from the signs of their presence in the area.

 Some details of tour:

During the field trips we have the opportunity to have a close look at these big predators and their social behaviour,
A lens with a focal length of at least 300mm is useful,
It is advisable to wear footwear that can walk on the dew. Clothing in muted colours (preferably black or brown) and non-sticky.
The trip consists of two mornings and two afternoons, including a trip to listen to wolves howl. Each part of the excursion lasts up to 4 hours: the first morning we go to the Strict Reserve to look for wolf tracks and listen to stories about wolf ecology; in the evening we go to listen to the wolf howl (at the end of this excursion it is already the howl of a whole pack….). On the second day, in the guide’s car, we will enter the rest of the forest in search of wolves (morning and afternoon excursion).
