Offert description

Podlasie is located in the north-eastern part of Poland. It is a multicultural and multinational region - Belarusians, Lithuanians, Roma, Russians, Tartars, Ukrainians, and before World War II also Jews live here. It is a place of numerous historical buildings connected with the culture of these nations. It is distinguished by its high level of wildlife, as evidenced by the local forests and the largest marshland complex in Europe. Four national parks have special natural, historical and tourist value: Białowieża, Biebrza, Narwiański and Wigry

Together with us you will embark on an unforgettable journey to admire the landscape and natural values and cultural heritage of Podlasie. To a place where silence and harmony reign. All the above makes this region very attractive for discovering wild paths, lost villages and valuable architectural monuments.

This is where endless gravel roads, the hospitality of the local people and amazing cuisine await you, which everyone should try! You'll experience an unforgettable opportunity to drive a few meters from the Belarusian border.

During the journey, we will discover the trail followed by the participants of the January Uprising. We will admire the unusual mixture of traditions and religions, including traces of a particularly interesting cultural community of Polish Tatars. A necessary stop will be for us to enter a Tatar restaurant and taste regional dishes with a traditional Tatar drink - syto. We will go to Białowieża for an eye to eye meeting with European bison.

Offroad is a way to get to know the world and yourself, combining new experiences, pleasure and, of course, an endless adventure. Join us!
