Bialowieza

Europe's last untamed forest.
Built around a royal hunting lodge, the village of Bialowieza sits in the heart of the Bialowieza Forest, on Poland's border with Belarus. This is Europe's last primeval, untamed forest, straddling the Polish-Belarusian border. Home to large herds of Europe's largest land animal, the European bison, this UNESCO-listed forest also hid Soviet and Polish partisan bands during World War II. Locals take protection seriously, and visits to the most primeval portion are limited to scientific expeditions, and guided tours of up to 20 people led by official guides.
With its isolated location, Bialowieza doesn't exactly lend itself to day trips. Fortunately, the park is a dream for fans of the outdoors. Less ancient parts of the park have extensive bike trails, as well as plenty of wildlife, including wolves, lynx, deer, boar, pygmy owls, and elk.

We plotted our honeymoon to Poland (yes, our honeymoon!). Been everywhere in Europe except where my family came from, and Igor and Jared set up an AMAZING 3 weeks of easy travel. The perfect mix of urban and countryside getaway, with prompt pick ups, great tours, fantastic (over the top) accommodations. (Poland is VERY inexpensive and you can live like a king there. Some hotels you never want to leave! I highly recommend Poland as a destination and I can not recommend JayWay Travel any higher...they are professional, in touch and just perfect. I cannot thank them enough!
