We visited the area in autumn so we were treated to some great autumn colours on the trees. Strolling in the managed part of the forest was fantastic, gorgeous trails for either walking or cycling. The area is pretty flat so it is very easy walking and cycling.
We were there in late October so most of the bird life was gone by the time we were there. We saw plenty of track of bisons but weren't lucky enough to see them in the wild.
It was the end of mushroom season and managed to get a good amount. Luckily, a Polish friend of ours was with us and she could point out the good ones. NOTE: make sure you know what you are doing when picking mushrooms. You can get very sick if you select the wrong ones. Locals also sell wild mushrooms, so that is also a good option.
We based ourselves in the town of Bialowieza and found that it was very central, plenty of food to pick from and lots of accommodation.
The National Park buildings are also worth a visit as is a guided walk in the national park.
