When to visit Bialowieza?
Spring – this season in the forest is gorgeous. We highly recommend visiting the Bialowieża Park in April or May, when everything blooms, nature comes back in full force and it begins to be warm (around 20C).
Summer – days are long and warm, exploring the Park is very pleasant, though it might be hot (30C).
Autumn – golden Polish Autumn is amazing! You can enjoy the multicolored forests and observe how nature begins to prepare itself for the upcoming winter.
Winter – Despite the low temperatures, winter is a perfect time to explore the forest. Bisons, wild boars and deers spend a lot of time searching for food and there is a good chance that you will meet them in the wild. This trip can be done with cross-country skis (on special request).
