We came a long way and drove all the way from Switzerland by car (2 days) just to see Europe's oldest forest. We did some other sightseeing along the way of course but this was our main purpose. And it was well worth it. Any...More

I would recommend this place only to people who are genuinely interested in nature - the nature reserve guided tour is full of details, which for an uninterested person might be a litle boring. Taking a stroll through the park does not require a guide...More

We went on a 3 1/2 hours tour in the strictly protected area of the national Park of Bialowieza. The guide was passionate. We learnt so much about the life of the forest, of the animals and of the Park restrictions.

We inadvertently visited during the 1 May holiday week. Luckily got to the PKK office early (opens 8am) and booked an English guide who was ready for a private tour by 0930. Yes it’s expensive by Polish standard at 390PL but you have to have...More

We had a three hour walk; I wish we had done 6. There is something magical about being in this original forest; if you can, you must. And just a walk in the woods would be enough. But we booked our tour with PTTK, and...More
