This guided wildlife tour will take you to some of the natural highlights of the country. You will spend 4 days visiting the mountainous area to the south of Krakow where a number of National Parks are in close proximity to each other. Later you will travel to Europe's last primaeval forest, Bialowieza which is of world importance and to the RAMSAR site of Biebrza wetlands where besides a number of important bird species, elk abound and even wolves have been seen.
The emphasis on these trips is for you to experience the best of the nature and wildlife in Poland. As such we will design your itinerary to suit your interests and the seasons. For example in the springtime around April is a great time to see owls, woodpeckers, capercaillie and black grouse at leks. The migratory birds are beginning to arrive and the brown bears down in the mountains are starting to become active after winter hibernation.
As nature awakens from its winter slumber, elk, otters, beavers are also out and about more. It has even been known that wolf can be seen in places such as Biebrza marshes. You are likely to spend this time of year between Krakow, the Tatra mountains, Podhale bogs, Babia Gora, the Pieniny mountains and Gorce mountain as well as Bialowieza and Biebrza.
Heading towards summer in May and June is a terrific time for birds, flowers are starting to bloom and there can be myriads of butterflies on the meadows of the Pieniny mountains. July and August are a great time for view cranes and storks with their young.
In September the colours become stunningly autumnal and you will head south to the mountains where fungi are prolific, red deer are in rut, wolves are howling and the brown bears are at their most active harvesting fruits before their winter hibernation. This is also a good time for bird watchers to head to the Masurian lakes and the coast around Gdansk.
