Berezinsky Biosphere Reserve

updated on 21/01/2017

Berezinsky State Reserve was established in 1925 and was the first of a kind in Belarus. In 1979 UNESCO included it into the international system of biosphere reserves. It consists of marshlands by one third and some researches assume that there are still areas in the reserve untouched by man. The term biosphere means that on most of its territory man’s economic activities are strictly forbidden and even the debris are normally not cleared away.

Today Berezinsky Biosphere Reserve located 125 km away from Minsk actively promotes recreational and environmental tourism. If you would like to visit a place with unspoiled nature, enjoy the fresh forest air and learn more about the wildlife of Belarus – you are most welcome!

The Museum of Wildlife offers several displays with beaver houses, hunting wolves and lynx, bears and elks. The local guide, often a wildlife and hunting expert will tell you the peculiarities of this or that species. His fauna stories might be accompanied with real occasions from his own experience or that of other hunters. After the Museum tour we will proceed along the 4-kilometer long environmental path by bicycles to have a better look at the trees and plants that grow in the reserve. En route there is an observation pad that offers a view over the marshlands.

The cycling will conclude at the open-air cages where zubr (bison) – the symbol of Belarus, bear, elk and others can be seen. The zubr is rather visitor-friendly and the bear can smile to the camera.

Tour duration: 6.0 hours, around 260 km round way.

Tour price: USD 220 (per car, 1-2 pax)*
