Autumn tour

A 5 days tour to Białowieża Forest & Biebrza Marshes in search of birds and mammals.

We will focus on the bird rarities of NE Poland. This includes looking for woodpeckers (8 species- inlcuding Three-toed, White-backed, Grey-headed and Black), Pygmy Owl, Nutcracker and Hazel Grouse. Until the beginning of October there will be also a possibility to observe eaglesLesser Spotted and Greater Spotted.

During the trip we will also search for mammals like European Bison, Elk (Moose), European Beaver (a dedicated boat trip will be organized) and large carnivores (Wolves and Lynx). September is also a rutting time for Red Deers & Elks.

Super recommended! We went on

Super recommended! We went on an amazing 5 day journey with Oliwier. Even with covid, some bad weather and the state of emergency with the border Oliwier new exactly what to do and where we can watch wildlife. He has an outstanding knowledge of every corner in Podlaskie and never gives up on finding the most rare birds (he also knows where the best food is!).

Oliwier was very kind to change our schedule at the last minute so our trip won’t be affected by bad weather. With his guidance we found bisons, elks, red deers, roe deers, beavers, otters, rare woodpeckers, cool waders and beautiful raptors. He has a lot of patience and he is very knowledgeable about wildlife, ecology, geography and history.

We definitely recommend him as a guide, we had some wonderful time!

Oliwier does a great job

Oliwier does a great job finding and showing everything was Bialowieza forest and Biebrza marshes have to offer. We contacted Oli on a very short-term-note in October 2021 and he organized an amazing trip just for the two of us. There were many highlights,like roaring deer stag in the autumn forest, a wolf howling in the night (answering Oli), spotting Bisons on frozen grassland at sunrise, spotting beavers at night, visiting the oldest trees of the park and much more. We also enjoyed learning a lot about our neighbour-country Poland via talking to Oli. We feel really close now – as good neighbours!
