Day 1: Meeting in Sanok at 9 am to change, introduction with the guide and horses. Leaving toward southern direction. Slowly getting used to clean air, severe surroundings and making ourselves comfortable on saddles. First gallops... The trial leads through clearings and meadows. Beautiful views, nature lover’s paradise! Accommodation: Wola Piotrowa.
Day 2: After delicious breakfast and getting our horses ready we start riding to Lipowiec – a real equestrian enclave. We pass through Surowiczne Clearings where people pasture one of the toughest polish horses: Huculy. Accommodation: Lipowiec.
Day 3: Leaving Lipowiec after breakfast we enter forests where most of our path leads along Polish-Slovakian border. We pass through Jasiel village which is an old and practically uninhabited place with only ghosts of the past blundering around. We spend the night in an old school that became a guest house. Interesting experience for those who have anything to do with school these days.
Day 4: This day our trial leads manly through forests. This is a chance to visit beautiful nature park Zrodliska Jasiolki a shelter for many flora and fauna species including bears, wolfs and lynxes.
* The city hall from 1896.
* The castle of the Kmita family built in 1550.
* The old 16th century synagogue.
* Kirkut - one of the oldest and biggest Jewish cemeteries in Poland.
Day 5: The main attraction of this day is Bezmiechowa aero-club that has been established in 1918. If we are lucky we can see how gliders are taking off. They are pulled on the rope uphill and released to fly. The night will be spent in extraordinary wooden, sculptured cottage in a place that can be found only by initiates or those who lost their way in the forests.
Day 6: During breakfast we are usually accompanied by Baska, landlord's horse who likes to check on visitors through the window. This is our last day of our journey through Bieszczady. Breathtaking views, last gallops, inevitably approaching Sanok. All we see and go through slowly becomes memories.
