Additional information

A weekend into the wild: we will ring the birds, go on safari in search of deer and moose, get to know the wolves and walk across the bog!

In this journey we go to the very north of Belarus, to a cozy eco-lodge in Rossony district, for meeting wild nature. We will take part in bird ringing, walk in the forest accompanied by charming Amur (Russian greyhound) and study the traces of wild animals, probably meet deer and moose, get acquainted with wolves living in aviary near the eco-lodge, walk across the bog, talk to professional ornithologists and other amateurs of wildlife!
At this eco-lodge there is one of two bird ringing stations in Belarus, where we will get acquainted with common redpoll, several species of tits, yellowhammer, Eurasian jay, treecreeper and other birds caught with the special nets. The ornithologist who accompanies us throughout the journey will answer all questions regarding birds and other inhabitants of the local forest. 

Participation in the bird ringing process will answer the questions: why does a bird need a ring, how long do birds live in wildlife and what to do if you find a ringed bird. And, of course, we will have a unique opportunity to see all ringed birds from such a close distance! 

In addition to bird ringing and wildlife safari, we will have a tour to the nearest upland bog. It will be a 3-hour walk with a guide. You will learn the distinctive features of upland, lowland and transitional bogs, explore the unique landscape and gain practical skills in moving around such area. 

Nevertheless, we also care about comfort: during the tour we will stay in a cozy eco-lodge (double rooms with a personal bathroom) and enjoy delicious home-made food from the hostess!
