Vienna to Budapest tour
The most memorable for me was waking through the sandstone canyons in the Teplice National Park. (more)David Simpson
I loved the Czech Republic in particular and also walking in the Tatra mountians. I will be telling everyone that if they want to ski they should try Slovakia as a skiing destination. Cesky Krumlov and Prague are the most fascinating cities and I will definitely be returning to visit them again. (more)Helen Spooner

Eastern Europe tour, the Baltic experience
Memorable parts? Cycling in Tallinn, testing fresh food in central market of Riga, kayaking and pick mushrooms in the Aukstaitija National Park. Dinning in Warsaw and the very lovely sunny tour leader. Tips? Travel light, ready to walk up to twenty minutes and claim stairs with all your luggage. Be well prepared with tourist information in all places, as the tour leader is not a tour guide, only gives out limited local information and may leave you behind if you walk too slow. Local...

Poland walking holiday
Memorable parts? Hard to pick a single part! The fact that we tried a new activity every day made the whole week really exciting! Tips? If you've not done downhill skiing before, do book some lessons while you are there - we really benefitted from them! Local benefits? Yes - we did almost everything locally, giving our business to the local village, including all our equipment hire and meals. Our guide Peter did a wonderful job of educating us on Slovakian culture and lifestyle,... (more)Jennifer Crosby

Pass through the heavy oaken gate into the Strict Nature Reserve (SNR) in Poland's Bialowieza Forest National Park and you step back in time. This is a forest such as you have never seen before, a true fairy tale forest, the Wildwood of 7,000 years ago. Oak and ash, lime, spruce and hornbeam soar to 40 metres and more. Cathedral pillars of trees, branchless until they form the canopy far above, "Some people come expecting the eerily dark taiga forest they have in Russia." my guide, Stawek Marczuk, remarked. "Bialowieza is not like that, it is a Robin Hood forest." And he is right, there is none of the forbidding atmosphere experienced in some forests, this is a friendly place. One of the most unusual aspects of the Strict Nature Reserve is the amount of timber on the ground. Ever since the National Park was established in 1932 fallen trees have been allowed to lie where they dropped except where this is across tracks and paths. Then they are sawn by hand and dragged clear with horses. No powered machinery is allowed. A dead oak may last for a hundred years and each soon acquires a wonderful hanging garden of mosses, soft woodland grasses, small flowers and mysterious fungi. Having Europe's largest remaining herd of free ranging bison is probably what makes Bialowieza most famous. They were exterminated here in 1919 and a re-introduction programme using zoo stock was begun in 1929. The first bison were released in 1952 and the herd is now maintained at around 260 animals. Ironically, being grazers, they prefer to live in the exploited forest outside the national park because the felling of trees leaves clearings where grass can grow for a while. They have been fed in the winter since 1810 in order to prevent unnecessary damage to trees and this is when they are easiest to find. Spotting them in summer is almost impossible and, although a poor substitute, the captive animals in the Bison Reserve close to Bialowieza village enable you to appreciate the scale of Europe's largest land mammal. Certainly they could give you a nasty nudge! Bialowieza Forest covers 1,500 square kilometres but only 40% is in Poland. I say 'only' but it still means travelling through continuous forest for a minimum of twelve miles in order to reach Bialowieza village. Of this the national park is limited to just a sixth and only part of that is SNR. The remainder is exploited forest, unprotected and still containing a significant but declining number of soaring old growth trees which are gradually being cut. The remaining 60% is in Belaruse where it has all been protected as the State National Park Belovezhskaya Puscha. These two national parks were additionally given UNESCO World Heritage Site status in 1992, one of a handful of European transfrontier sites. Read more about Poland in this Poland article.
