The Vistula Spit Forests, Poland

The Vistula Spit forests stretch on the north-eastern side of the Pomorskie Region from its bottom near Nowy Dwór Gdański on the west as long as to the Russian border on the east.

The region includes a valuable natural area with well-preserved forest stands typical to the spit consisted of the birch and oak woods as well as the seaside pine forests. There is also present the “Vistula Spit Beeches” reserve as well as the “Kąty Rybackie” cormorant reserve. The Spit is well equipped with the tourist infrastructure such as the birdwatching towers, bike and pedestrian routes even at the highest permanent dune called the “Camel hump” as well as places to sleep and eat. The forestry district of Elblag offers there the hunting activities in Przebrno on the Spit (it is possible to hunt for the fallow deers, roe deers and boars). Hunters can go on individual and group hunts. The hunting ground offers capital fallow stags and attractive group hunts focused on boars The fact that the district is located along the bird migration  route and in direct vicinity of water reservoirs makes the areas situated between the wood and the Vistula Lagoon waters and the Baltic Sea a favourite place for bloodless hunt lovers. Dure to this the Forestry District of Elblag organizes an annual event called “Bird Picnic” that yearly attracts around 2000 people to observe over 100 000 birds flying over towards the south. Within the project it will be developed the high class birdwatching activities as well as it will be tested the innovative ways of marketing the hunting activities.
