The Biebrza River Valley and Wetlands

Are you tired of the hustle and bustle of everyday life? Would like to find yourself in a place where you can see endless meadows and marshes with no signs of civilization? If your answer is “yes”, you should immediately visit the Biebrza River Valley!

Here you will hear the rush of the river, enjoy the smell of the fields and see a starry sky at night. It is one of the largest wildlife refuges in Europe and the biggest national park in Poland protecting intact natural areas and numerous species of plants and animals. It is a real paradise for birds – over 80% of Polish avifauna can be found here. This area is a must-see place for all birdwatchers, photographers and nature lovers.

When the spring begins, you can see and hear an extraordinary spectacle of birds performing a courtship ritual dances. However, if you want to better understand and feel the amazing climate of this place, you should do rafting on the Biebrza River or take the guided tour around the Red Swamps (Czerwone Bagna).

You can stand face to face with the undisputed king of the Biebrza Marshes, the Eurasian elk. Or maybe you would prefer to meet beaver, river otter or wolf? Whatever you choose, you can be sure that you will make the perfect choice!
