…Well, with Piotr and Bart as our guides, we did see a bear (and lots of scats and some spoors), half a dozen or so bison, and one morning, the full pack of fourteen wolves that seemed to be hunting a stag we saw running away a little earlier. We saw four+ wolves of a second pack, and one magical night, two beavers and a family of otters playing. Add to that lots of birds, including many raptors, and it was worth getting up so early and do long treks before breakfast!

We had a fantastic experience during this tour. We saw a lot of mammals, birds, and even spotted wolves. Amazing!!

Bart was a great guide. Informative with an incredible bank of knowledge and also helpful and attentive. His enthusiasm for nature inspired. Consistent care made the tour feel special. And we saw two wolves!

– Participant from The Netherlands, April 2019

The level of guide exceeded our expectations and made each day a positive informative experience and we would certainly consider booking another tour in future.

– Ruth & Steve, April 2019

Before the trip we did not appreciate the excitement of seeing a bear foot print, somehow more powerful than we had imagined – you have to experience it!

We have returned from our trip and I just wanted to let you know that we had a fantastic time. Bieszczady is without a doubt one of the most beautiful, wildest places I have ever visited and we have very much fallen in love with the region. Our guide, Piotr, clearly made it his personal mission to achieve our dream of seeing a wolf and took us to some of the most stunning places in the process. I cannot speak highly enough of how incredibly helpful, passionate, hardworking and accommodating he was.

Willa Arnika was a wonderful place to stay. The room was very comfortable with a lovely view and the food in the lodge was absolutely delicious. They catered very well for my vegetarian diet and the landlady was generous in making sure we had everything we could possibly want.

And best of all – we saw a wolf! After three days of hard trekking (…) we finally glimpsed one from the window of our minibus on our way to the airport. That’s nature for you! We did, of course, see many other mammals during the rest of the trip as well, including bison, wild boar, many red and roe deer, pine marten, fox and hares.

Thank you once again!

– Kate & Ben, UK, March 2018

All was well organised and great guiding and variety. We saw a wolf and a wild cat. Plus we stayed at a beautiful place off the beaten track.

– Götz, Germany – Dec 2017

Well equipped for varied terrain and weather conditions. Considering the nature of the area we were taken to areas where we saw wildlife (wolf, wild cat, many deer, eagles, ural owl). A good management and understanding of the trip and the expectation of how much wildlife is in the area is well managed.

– CM, Switzerland – Dec 2017

Fabulous location, everything was very well prepared, great guides and great adventures – another Wild Poland special! (my 3rd trip with Wild Poland).

– Sam, Belgium – Dec 2017

The guides were exceptionally knowledgable and we loved the no-nonsense approach to trekking which allowed us maximum time in the field. We felt the guides did everything they could to locate wildlife.
