Bieszczady National Park
Flora and fauna
The Ośrodek Informacyjno-Edukacyjny BPN, located at Lutowiska 2, has knowledgeable staff and hiking and general maps available for purchase. It is a good starting point.
Hiking is the main activity. The Ośrodek Informacyjno-Edukacyjny in Lutowiska sells an excellent map of hiking tracks for about 4zł. A popular trail is to the top of Mount Tarnica, the tallest peak in the park. Multiple starting point and additional routes available, the shortest being around 3hrs return and the longest being multiple days.
For a less hilly terrain, drive to Bukowiec. The last portion is gravel but suitable for 2WD. Keep going until you reach a large car park with a little tourist hit. The car park has a small flat fee and is the starting point of hiking along the Ukrainian border. The shortest hikes are around an hour and the full path, all the way to the tip of Poland, is 6 hours.
Horseback riding is also available in the park - there are two stables, one in Wołosate and one in Tarnowa Niżna. Rates are as low as 30zł for 30 minutes. Beginner to expert available, though you should stop by the day before or call ahead to ensure availability. The Ośrodek Informacyjno-Edukacyjny has contact details.
Gospoda Pod Żubrem: a cosy little restaurant next to a grocery store in Lutowiska, serving regional fare. The Bieszczadski Placek is particularly good - a savoury potato cake topped with meat in a lovely sauce with sauerkraut on the side. Around 25zł per main. Lutowiska 73.
