I’m delighted to give you the details of my annual trip to the truly awesome National Parks of Biebrza and Bialowieza, in north-eastern Poland. Dates are March 31 through April 5. 2011.
The itinerary is as follows :
March 31 : Fly Dublin to Warsaw with Aer Lingus and transfer to Biebrza National Park.
April 1 – 3 : Walking and wildlife spotting in Biebrza NP, home to Elk, Red Deer, Beaver, Wolf, Lynx and birds, such as Lesser Spotted Eagle, Crane, Stork, Woodpecker, Owl, Geese, etc. Biebrza (‘beaver’ in Polish) NP is based around the river basin of the same name and is a spectacular area of river marsh and wetland woodlands.
April 3 – 4 : Walking and wildlife spotting in Bialowieza NP, home to Bison, Deer, Wolf, Lynx, various species of Woodpecker and many other fabulous birds. Bialowieza NP is based around the primeval forest of the same name – one of the very last tracts of such beautiful and serene forest in central and eastern Europe.
April 5 : Return to Ireland.
We stay in shared rooms in lovely traditional ‘pensions’. Meals, transport within Poland and full guiding with our wonderful local expert are all included. The flights are not included and should be booked directly with www.aerlingus.com as soon as possible, in order to benefit from the best prices possible. Today, February 15, the return flight with no luggage in the hold, costs approx. Euro 120.
The cost of this great trip with us is Euro 500 per person sharing. If you book your flights soon and bring just cabin luggage, the total cost is around Euro 620. I cannot recommend this trip highly enough. Our local guide is so good, he’s written the guide book to the nature and biodiversity of Biebrza National Park.
Walking is easy, with no hills of any note. This is a great relaxing trip into the vast nature of eastern Europe. See pictures of this trip in previous years, by visiting here.
