Wolves of Bieszczady
A week tracking Europe's largest population of wolves in the Bieszcady mountains of Poland
The opportunity to track wolves in Europe is a special privelage and the week will concentrate on finding these animals based on input from local researches and the knowledge of our guides. With a bit of luck this amount of time should be sufficient to find wolves. However, they are not the only wildlife in these area.
The characteristic animal of the area is the red deer but there are also roe deer and even a few elk living in the mountains. Perhaps the most impressive animal to meet are wisek or European bison, reintroduced to the Bieszczady Mountains 50 years ago. All of these species are necessary prey for a good list of predators.
Wolves are not the rare animal here as this is one of the most populous areas of Europe for wolves. Lynx is the symbol of Bieszczady National Park and it lives here together with wildcat, both in good numbers. Brown bear are also in their greatest density in these mountains and some males do not sleep during mild winters and therefore it is also possible to track them too. Beavers are also very frequent and are often present close to their lodges in winter. Otter is a very common sight on the San River where they are easy to find catching fish in ice holes.
Those who have some degree of fitness for walking will gain most pleasure from this nature week and during the week it is hoped that Bieszczady will really impress with it diverse nature in a wild setting.
