The bisons are kept in a acclimatization enclosure placed nearby the Visiting Centre so as to reduce the accommodation time and to accustom the animals to the freedom conditions. The enclosure is impressive not only by its wide surface, of approx. 444.80 acres, but especially by the multitude of natural habitats, the deciduous forests, fir and mixt forests, some of them consisting of trees that are more than 200 year-old. The complex natural scenery, made of woods and streams intertwined as a mosaic, is perfect for the bisons to get accustomed to the wilderness. In the last 15 years, human intervention has been totally prohibited around the enclosure, so that nature could follow its natural course.

At the Visiting Centre tourists receive the necessary information to prepare themselves for the unknown world of the bisons. Accompanied by a ranger of the Park, using adequate personal protective equipment, tourists can begin their adventure in finding the animals on foot, in the acclimatization enclosure. Most part of the route crosses paths with the trails used by the bisons in their search for nurture, so their traces can easily be seen. The bison is known to be an “architect” of landscapes. The pedestrian suspension bridge of 13 m high has also an educational purpose. From the top of the wooden bridge, one can see all the surroundings. During the cold season, tourists can also see the bisons that come to feed themselves.

On the route there are no less than 10 tourist attractions, where the ranger gives tourists additional information about the local flora and fauna and the interdependence between them and the bisons. Keeping quiet is very important in order to reach close to the bisons and also to hear “the voice” of the forest, a song that changes uninterruptedly.
