Winter tour

A 4-days tour to Białowieża Forest in search of mammals and birds.

During this tour we will focus mainly on mammals. Main targets will be Bison & Wolf. Besides that other mammals possible to see during the tour will be Red & Roe Deer, Red Fox, Wild Boar, Elk, Red Squirrel, Pine Marten. Tracking is also planned as winter months in Poland are usually snowy.

While in the field we might also observe some good bird species, this inludes woodpeckers (incl. Black, Three-toed, White-backed, Grey-headed, Middle-spotted, Lesser-spotted), Pygmy Owl, but also passerines like Hawfinch, Waxwing & Crested Tit as well as birds of prey – White-tailed Eagles, Rough-legged Buzzards & Hen Harriers.

Group size will be very small to observe mammals more efficiently, approach animals easily & to enter the area unaccessible for larger groups.

Amazing weekend at Bialowieza National

Amazing weekend at Bialowieza National Park!
We booked a 4-day tour (Fr-Mo) and it was amazing!! Oliwier is the best guide, his tracking skills are excellent and he even can imitate owl sounds so good that they responded, which was so cool to hear in the quite forest.
We mainly focused on Bisons and Wolves but from the beginning it was clear that the chances of seeing Wolves are very small, but we were so lucky because Oliwier was always right where we might find them and saw them twice, one we even saw & heard howling pretty close to us. Oliwier also found the kill of a wolf pack. In addition, we also saw and heard owls, saw many different birds, red deer, a red fox and a racoon dog. The Bison encounters were very special too, first we saw one or two males alone on a field grazing and a herd a bit further away but on our last day, we saw another big herd quite close, so cool, such impressive animals. Another amazing thing was the tracking, we learned so much from Oliwier, saw so many different tracks, from Bison, Deer, Wolf, Fox and Badger, we also saw two Lynx tracks in the fresh snow. The tracking led us through really beautiful parts of the forest. We are so happy that we booked this tour with Oliwier, the whole weekend was amazing, we can really recommend him as a guide, we would always choose him again. Thank you so much Oliwier for this unforgettable weekend!
