Go to map

Wild nature has been preserved in the Biebrza valley, which it was decided to take special care of. Today, the area of ​​the Biebrza National Park is one of the most valuable places in terms of nature in Poland. Biebrza also favors canoeists who can organize rafting on this river. Hiking and kayaking allow visitors to this park to enjoy not only beautiful landscapes, but also interesting species of waterfowl. In spring, you can meet many ornithologists in the Biebrza National Park, for which there are perfect conditions for bird watching. The most interesting part of the park is the Czerwone Bagno reserve, which is strictly protected. Here are the largest elk nurseries in Poland and the only nesting sites for the Greater Spotted Eagle. These inaccessible peat bogs are a real natural gem. People appear here very rarely, thanks to which animals have ideal conditions for development, reproduction and raising offspring. Biebrza National Park is the largest national park in Poland and one of the largest in Europe. It is located in the north-eastern part of the country, in the Podlaskie Voivodeship. It mainly protects the vast and almost unchanged valley peat bogs with the unique diversity of plant, bird and other animal species as well as natural ecosystems. A significant part of the park is the largest and most natural complex of low, high and transitional peat bogs in Poland and Europe. The main hydrographic axis of the park is the Biebrza River over the length of 164 km. The width of the riverbed is from several to several dozen meters, and the river flows in bends and creates numerous oxbow lakes. The climate is similar to continental with subboreal elements. It is characterized by a long winter, short early spring and the shortest vegetation period (outside the mountains). Characteristic for the climate of the Biebrza Valley are frequent fogs appearing on clear evenings and persisting until late morning. The basic goals of establishing the park are the protection of specific, disappearing marsh and peat habitats in Europe, the protection of rare and disappearing plant communities and animal species, as well as biotopes important for the protection of avifauna. This area is also characterized by unique landscape values. The Biebrza Valley is on the list of Natura 2000 protected areas.
