For sure you will see lot of plants and hear many birds. As for other animals – we need a bit of chance. But if you agree to wake up in the morning and walk a bit with a guide in surroundings, chances are better. We can walk also late evening. If you wish to see wolf in Poland or moose or deer they live in our forests. But it is not everyday experience to meet them or hear their voices.
