Why book this trip?

On this short break to Belarus we'll explore the capital city of Minsk and journey into the Belarusian wilderness to an eco station where our expert guides will take us deep into the forest to try to spot wolves, bison and other wildlife. This is a true wilderness experience where we'll be out exploring at dawn and dusk, when the animals are most active, and staying in simple accommodation that's in the wilderness. Better still most visitors can travel on this trip visa free, so it's never been cheaper or easier to discover Belarus.

    Day 1 - Join trip in Minsk

    Our exciting long weekend begins in Belarus's capital city, Minsk. After checking-in to our hotel and meeting the group, along with our Explore Leader, this evening is at leisure to enjoy a taste of the city and to sample Belarusian cuisine. Popular dishes include machanka, a hearty pork stew, and draniki, which are thick potato pancakes. For an after dinner tipple try krambambula, a traditional Belarusian liquor, which is similar to mead and flavoured with spices and honey.

    Day 2 - Market visit and tour of Soviet Minsk; evening wolf watching safari

    We start our day by boarding the metro for the city market. It's best to visit in the morning when residents are out haggling for fresh fruit and vegetables that are on sale from nearby farms. You can see, and of course buy, a whole range of edible goodies here including meat, cheese, nuts and spices. You might want to pick up some snacks and drinks to have for the next couple of nights whilst we are staying in our remote forest eco station.

    Minsk is a city with a long history, set on the banks of the Svislach River it was first settled by the East Slavs back in the 9th century AD. However, our guided tour this morning is going to focus on its more recent history, which has largely been dominated by Soviet rule that lasted from around 1920 to 1991. The city was almost entirely destroyed during World War II with around 80% of its houses and infrastructure reduced to rubble. Afterwards the city was rebuilt with its historic centre being replaced by Stalinist architecture with grand buildings, brutalist statues, broad avenues and imposing squares. Victory Square is the most famous part of the city and features a memorial to the fallen heroes of World War II. During our tour we'll have a brief visit to the Museum of the Great Patriotic War, which is the centre piece in Victory Park. This huge museum has hundreds of exhibits and two of the most poignant rooms are the Hall of Glory that celebrates the heroes of the Soviet Union and the emotive memorial found in the Hall of Remembrance and Sorrow.

    Belarusian politics remains controversial with Alexander Lukashenko having ruled as president since 1994. During your free time for lunch you might like to dine in the Parliament's House of Representatives canteen where you maybe lucky enough to spot politicians having lunch. Next we drive to see Minsk's unusual Central Library building, with its unique architecture.

    Late this afternoon we drive out of the city to the Naust Eco Station in the Naliboki Forest, which will take us about 1.5 hours to reach. Once here we'll depart on the first of four wolf watching safaris that we'll take during our stay. Each safari will last for about three to four hours and the group will be split between two Russian Niva jeeps and a Range Rover that will be driven by our two local guides and our Explore Leader into the forest. The exact start time of the safaris will vary depending on the season and weather conditions as it's best to try and spot the wildlife at dusk and dawn when they're at their most active. Our guides will take us on a number of short walks into the forest (we'll walk no more than about 3 kilometres in total per safari) to show us several different types of wolf dens and habitats, locate wolf tracks, scats and territorial marking, and perhaps to view photos of the wolves captured on the camera-traps. The terrain in the forest is uneven and can be boggy and muddy underfoot so wellington boots and plenty of spare socks are recommended. Our wildlife watching on this trip doesn't take place from within hides but outside in the forest with our guides tracking animals through the woods. Wolves and lynx are highly intelligent and quite shy, but our guides will do their best to locate them for us to see. We will hopefully be able to spot other animals too such as beaver, deer, bison and wild pigs.

    After our safari we'll have dinner back at the eco station. Our meal will normally consist of soup or salad to start and then a hot main course made from local produce that is in season at the time with a local beer and followed by a cup of tea or coffee. If you have any dietary requirements then please let Explore know at the time of booking this trip. There is no bar at the eco station so if you fancy a couple of drinks after dinner then you need to purchase these in Minsk and bring them along with you.

    We'll stay for two nights at the eco station, which is a true wilderness experience - there's no in-room television, no WiFi, limited mobile phone signal and no crowds of tourists. The eco station is located in a small glade within the forest near to the Volga River and it's from here that our guides conduct their scientific research into the forest and its inhabitants. It is a scientific station that's designed to be environmentally friendly and in keeping with the traditional building style that has been found in the forest for generations. It's not a guesthouse or hotel and so the facilities are basic. The station has three outside toilets, one shower and two small saunas shared by everyone. We'll be staying in a variety of different sized dormitory style rooms that all have simple rustic decor. No bedding is provided, so you'll need to bring you own sleeping bag (four seasons for winter departures) and although there are cushions provided you may prefer to also bring your own pillow.

    Please note that depending on the time of year we may need to go straight to the Eco Station today in order to do our first wolf safari before it gets dark. If so then we will instead go on our Minsk city tour on the afternoon of day 4.

    Accommodation:

    Grade: Simple Cabins

    Meals Provided: Breakfast and Dinner

    Day 3 - Wolf watching safaris and talk on Belarusian flora and fauna

    Early this morning (at around 4am) we'll board our Niva jeeps and Range Rover and head into the forest on another wolf watching safari. As well as trying to spot the mammals that roam the forest there's also a variety of birdlife in the area and depending on the season we may be able to see species such as black grouse, hazel grouse, golden eagle, white-tailed eagle and black storks.

    After our time in the forest we'll return to the eco station for breakfast which normally consists of warm rolls, biscuits, cheese and tea and coffee. We'll then have some time to relax and catch-up on sleep before having lunch. Following this one of our forester guides will teach us more about the flora and fauna of Belarus and the local wolf population.

    This evening we'll head out again on another evening wolf tracking safari before returning to the eco station for dinner and to rest for the night.

    Accommodation:

    Grade: Simple Cabins

    Meals Provided: Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner

    Day 4 - Early morning wolf watching safari; return to Minsk

    This morning we get up very early once again to drive out into the forest for our final chance to hopefully spot wolves and more. After spending a few hours out exploring we'll return to the eco station for the last time to have breakfast before we board our bus for the drive back to Minsk. The afternoon is free for you to relax, have a long shower and catch-up on some sleep or perhaps to go out into the capital and see more the sights at your own pace.

    This evening you might like to take a stroll through the Trinity Suburb, which is one of oldest and most picturesque areas. You may like to visit one of a number of Stolle Restaurants in the city, which are famous for their variety of savoury and sweet pies that you can either eat in or take away. Just a few of the many pie fillings include meat and egg, salmon, lemon, and cabbage.

    Budgeting and packing

    Optional activities

    The following excursions and/or activities are usually available and may be arranged locally. Estimated costs are provided below for guidance only, are on a per person basis unless shown otherwise, and may depend on the number of participants. Prices quoted are correct as of the date these tour notes were originally issued but may change at any time due to currency fluctuations. Please note: These activities are booked and paid for direct with the supplier and do not form part of your Explore holiday contract.


    There are no optional excursions offered on this trip.

    Clothing

    On this trip you will be spending a lot of time outside in the forest in the earlier morning and late evening which can be chilly at anytime of year, therefore we would recommend packing layers including a fleece and taking a hat, gloves, scarf and sufficient waterproofs (jacket and trouser) with you just in case. it's best to have spare changes of clothes in case you get wet whilst on safari. July and August are the hottest months so we'd recommend taking lightweight cotton clothing. During spring and autumn temperatures can be lower and there is also a stronger possibility of rain. During the winter months you should take warm layered waterproof clothing and thermals with you as it may well be snowy.

    Footwear

    We recommend taking wellington boots and plenty of spare socks for in the forest as it is very likely to be wet and muddy underfoot (whatever the season) and also to take comfortable waterproof walking boots.

    Luggage

    20kg

    Luggage: On tour

    One main piece of baggage and a day pack. Remember you are expected to carry your own luggage so don't overload yourself.

    Equipment

    We advise taking a water bottle for our included safaris as well as sun glasses, sunscreen and a sun hat. For our stay in the Eco Station, you will need to bring a sleeping bag and towels are not provided so you may wish to bring your own. You may also find dry shampoo useful.

    In case of emergency we also recommend that you carry a torch and a first aid kit. For the time spent in the forest please take mosquito repellent and you may find a mosquito head net handy. For wildlife spotting it's best to bring binoculars with you and a camera with a good zoom lens and spare battery. It can be boggy and uneven underfoot in the forest so you may also find walking poles handy. Our safaris will be in the early morning and late evening, so you might find a head torch useful for when it gets dark.

    Accommodation notes


    Our hotel in Minsk is conveniently located just a few minutes' walk from the Partyzanskaya Metro Station and it's a 15-20 minute journey into the very centre of the city. Close to our hotel is the Belarus Department Store where you may like to browse for local products such as textiles. The area around the hotel is dominated by locals including a large tractor manufacturing base which employs an astonishing 17,000 people. They are extremely proud of their tractor production and so there are monuments to the tractor and even children's parks with tractor shaped toys. The hotel and the surrounding area have a very Soviet layout and give us a glimpse into what normal life is like in the city. The hotel is tall and offers great views from the higher floors.

    We also spend two nights at the Naust Eco Station, which is a true wilderness experience - there's no TV, no WiFi and limited mobile phone signal. You might like to take entertainment with you for during the day when you're not out on safari such as a book, audio book or an electronic book reader, games device or tablet, pack of cards or a quiz book. The station has three outside toilets, one shower and two small saunas shared by everyone. We'll be staying in a variety of different sized dormitory style rooms with simple rustic decor that have between one to three beds in them. Some of the beds are matresses on the floor and others are on bed frames constructed from timber found in the forest. No bedding is provided, so you'll need to bring you own sleeping bag (four seasons for winter departures) and although there are cushions provided you may prefer to also bring your own pillow. Some bedrooms have curtains rather than doors separating them from other rooms and need to be passed through to reach communal areas. Rooms will be allocated on a run of house basis and might be mixed gender. No single room option is available at the station - the single room supplement on this trip is for the two nights spent in Minsk only. The Eco Station does have electricity and there are plug sockets available in most rooms to charge camera and phone batteries, but power cuts do occurs, so its best to bring spare batteries if you can and also to carry a torch with you just in case. The Eco Station is family owned and the husband and wife will be our guides during our safaris into the forest - they have over 35 years of experience on the wildlife of Belarus. They do have their own private house which they share with their two children and they also have a few friendly dogs that roam freely around the Eco Station.
