Accommodation will be at the Naust Eco-station, a simple but comfortable restored traditional farmstead deep in the Naliboki Forest in northwestern Belarus. Here you will be able to relax and experience a traditional sauna, and enjoy local food and drink. There is also a small museum of traditional forest life. Facilities are basic, but give an authentic taste of life in the forest. Some room-sharing may be necessary.
The trip will take place in the spring of 2017, with exact dates to be confirmed subject to group requirements. The cost will be 70 euros per day (total 560 euros, approximately £420, payable in cash on arrival), which includes transfers to and from Minsk airport and the field station, accommodation and all food and excursions.
Flights to/from Minsk are NOT included. Rendezvous will be at Minsk airport.
You will need to obtain a visa to travel to Belarus. Supporting documentation will be provided. You will need to arrange your own travel insurance to obtain a visa and enter Belarus.
