Ecological tourism

Sunday, 24 June 2007
Millions of people world-wide are united by the idea of protecting nature for the future generations and preserving the natural assets which have not been spoilt yet by modern civilisation. Ecologists are eager to get in close touch with the most valuable natural environments. Such holidays provide experiences, discoveries and adventures, which often join passion with active rest. Poland offers plenty of opportunities to put these ideas into practice.

There are regions in Poland, where nature has been preserved almost intact. For better protection, some of them were turned into National Parks and many nature reserves were also established. Their rich wildlife may be admired during hikes along specially prepared nature paths and marked tourist trails.

Europe's last primeval forest is under protection in the Bialowieza National Park. The river Biebrza Marshes reserve is unique and not to be found elsewhere in the world. The lake-lands and the river valleys of the Narew, Bug, Odra and Vistula are home to rare plant species and almost all bird species living in Europe.

Many travel agencies in Poland offer nature safaris with bird watching and observation of animals in their natural environment. These tours often include the Bialowieza Forest, River Biebrza Marshes, the Mazurian Lake District, Drawa National Park and a number of other national parks in the Polish Mountains. It is also possible to stay a longer time in one place. Professional equipment, guides and accommodations are available in tourist facilities located in the vicinity of national parks.
