On Saturday, we fly to Kraków, where we take time to explore the city, eat and drink.
A pleasant first evening that sets the mood for what follows.
After a relaxed arrival, we will take you back in time today. We visit an open-air museum about the lifestyle during the 19th century. And also a museum that tells the story of Poland's fauna and flora. The knowledge we gain here will greatly enrich our adventure. If you are not a quizzer, you can ask the local guide for trivia later.
The unforgettable adventure starts with a 2-hour ride off-road, through fields, through forests and through the river. You will get a sense of your surroundings and get a good wake-up call on an adventure.
Once dropped, we are on our own. Together with our Belgian survival guide and local fauna and flora guide, we brave nature. The days are filled with hiking but there is always room for other experiences: exploring the environment, making camp, survival lessons, enjoying the surroundings, swimming in the wild river.
Day 4 - 5 - 6
The adventure consists of navigating through the primeval forest. In addition to the wilderness routes, there will be plenty of time to experience and explore the surroundings or engage in survival activities.
Breakfast by the campfire, making fire without a lighter, filtering water, sleeping under canvas, survival lessons, fauna & flora lessons, vistas, idyllic trails ...
On the last expedition day, we say goodbye to our camping habits. We hike our last kilometres back to civilisation. Now it's time for a good shower and pampering with food and drinks. The hotel is also equipped with sauna, jacuzzi, ... Something to look forward to during the adventure.
After a blissful night's sleep, we enjoy our sumptuous breakfast. Today, we take a cruise on Lake Solina, visit some more fun places nearby. But most of all, we talk about our experience of food, drink and good company. This day is also free to take more time in the wellness. In the evening, we end the day with a festive meal. Burgundian Polish cuisine is a warm experience after five days of effort.
* Specific dietary requirements are possible throughout the trip (restrictions, allergies, intolerances)
Flight back home.
In the middle of Poland's primeval forests, we are dropped off in 4x4 vehicles. Off the beaten track, in the untouched wilderness there is no one or nothing to be seen. With only our basic supplies, we have to make our way back to civilisation. To successfully complete the wilderness trek, it is important to learn to navigate as a team and use nature to your advantage.
Learn to expand your comfort zone and take on this challenge. Learn to cook on a fire, make a shelter, sleep under a tarp.... Everything to make a wilderness immersion as enjoyable as possible. Learn to enjoy the basics to create a life full of fulfilment and happiness.

Why the Primeval forest
A primeval forest is a forest that has remained untouched for centuries. In the primeval forests of Bieszczady, we find trees between 200 and 300 years old.
This environment allows us to completely withdraw from everyday life. It lets us discover what our living environment used to look like and how we can use it to gain new energy.

What to do in case of emergency

The guide is certified in Wilderness First Aid.
What about bears and wild animals
We are together with our local guide who knows the area very well. When going on adventure with large groups the challenge is about finding wildlife, not avoiding it.
In the forest you can find signs of bears, wolves, and many other animals. These are very shy and carefull animals that are not attracted to human activity.
During the adventure, we pass rivers and lakes where we can cleanse ourselves by taking a dip.
There are no sanitary facilities during the drop. But we are happy to teach you how to make pleasant use of nature.
