EXPEDITION TO THE BORECKA FOREST WITH A NATURALIST

This expedition is an adventure for big and small explorers alike. We invite all nature lovers and everyone who feels at home in the backwoods. The tour is guided by an expert naturalist who has spent years actively campaigning for environmental protection.

During your walk through the Borecka Forest, you will become intimately familiar with the local fauna and flora. You may meet a wisent (European bison), an elk or even a wolf, and if you are more into flora, look out for martagon lilies and rare species of orchids. The Borecka Forest is an important sanctuary for many protected species of birds (including the white-tailed eagle, the lesser spotted eagle and the three-toed woodpecker), so we will keep an eye out for these, too.

The tours start early in the morning.

Duration: approx. 2 hours; price: determined individually (from PLN 200 per group)
