We didn't visit the strictly protected part as no other English visitors and we would have had to pay the price of the whole tour. Alternative might have been to join the much cheaper Polish tour and hope a kind Polish person would give occasional translations. Having said that we bought a map and followed some of the educational nature trails which gave explanations of some of the trees. we walked over to the bison reserve which was fun. A lovely forest. But beware the trail from east of the bison reserve - closed so you have to come back by the same route!

We loved everything about this lovely forest, we were in Poland on a nature tour and found this huge forest a delight, we particularly enjoyed our tour with a local guide around the Strict Reserve, he was very knowledgable and showed us many hidden treasures there, the vast array of fungi was very interesting and the fact that it had not been managed for many years added to the mystery, when we came to a swamp you could almost imagine dinosaurs there!! If you visit the area this is a must see place.

This is one of the must see forests that you should see once you are in Poland. Wild nature, untouched by people's hands - just amazing. There is also a wide choice of hotels as well as private pensions (B&Bs) where you can sleep comfortably. You can take trips around Bialowieza, go for a walk, take a drive and go to beautiful nearby towns.
Other must see in Bialowieza: Museum of National Park, Bison Reservoir, Skansen.

Fall is a perfect time to visit the forest! The trees were shades of oranges, crimson, golden yellows, greens and browns. As you walk through the forest, you can smell the pine needles and clear, fresh air. We were lucky enough to see a couple bison, two wild boar and a fox on our tour with the PTTK. Our guide, Joanna, was excellent - very knowledgeable about the forest and its animals! I ended up taking 500 photos in 2 days, which will be edited down, of course, but just goes to show how much natural beauty there is to see here!

If you love nature and hiking in the forest, this is perfect place for you!
