Europe / Belarus - Ultimate East of Europe
Belarus has became one of the prime birding destinations in Europe partly because of our pioneer tours close to a decade ago and the dozens of very successful tours since then for loads of UK, USA, Swiss and other birding, butterfly and wildlife groups. This country that is the Eastern neighbour of Poland is second to none. The variety of birds that includes several highlight species very rarely seen in other parts of Europe is only one aspect. Imagine roads taking you through ancient forests, hundreds of meandering rivers, the biggest marshes and fens of the continent, while you hardly meet any traffic or even people. Truly an unbeatable paradise remaining intact and wild, no wonder Belarus conserves huge population of Bison, Lynx and Wolf. We have searched good quality hotels situated close to the best birding sites. Tasty local cusine, witnessing true rural life in small ancient villages are part of our trip. This country is perfectly safe, yet, you can experience the taste of an era that is already left behind in most parts of Eastern Europe. Our tour visits three key places: Belowezhkaya Pushcha NP adjoining its smaller counterpart the World famous Bielowieza NP in Poland with Pygmy, Great Grey and Tengmalm's Owl, then Sporovo Reserve protecting 90% of the world's Aquatic Warbler population, and finally Pripyatsky NP that is a paradise for sought-after waders offering a unique variety of primarily Eastern species such as Azure Tit, Terek Sandpiper or Citrine Wagtail.
