Holidays Tracking European Wolf in Poland

Thursday, October 22nd, 2009

As the Wildlife Photographer of the Year 2009 is announced with an Iberian Wolf jumping a gate into a field under moonlight in search of food, we have clients in Poland tracking wolves in the Bieszczady Mountains. This area is often very productive for those interested in finding Europe’s elusive carnivore. Recent snows in the mountains of Poland have meant that wolf tracking early in the season has been quite rewarding  this week. From a village base where wolves were last sighted 4 days ago daily tracking takes place with our professional guide and the knowledge of local researchers and forest workers. Bear trails and bison are also readily seen at this time of the year too. So if you want the excitement of tracking these magnificent large mammals consider taking a holiday in Poland with us soon.


Great Value Bird Watching & Wildlife Holidays in Poland

Tuesday, March 3rd, 2009

Zlotys! Yes, despite the value of the British pound against the Euro and the US Dollar it is remarkably strong against the Polish Zloty which consequently means that our wildlife holidays in Poland are of great value at present. With Spring and Summer coming this is an excellent time to discover Poland. Over 80% of European bird species have been recorded here and from April many return to the Polish landscape to breed after their winter migration. But bird watching in Poland is not the only reason to visit. During the early summer there is a tremendous diversity of butterflies and dragonflies; whilst for those interested in flora a stunning array of orchids will be in bloom. You can also discover little known mammalian species, not found in the UK, such as the rare garden dormouse and spotted sousliks, a ground squirrel of the steppe grasslands. Larger mammals you may see on our wildlife holidays in Poland include wolf, bear, bison, elk, otters and beavers. Ideally, your trip should usually last from 1 to 2 weeks and it will be accompanied by our superb professional guides.
