The Belarusian Forestry Ministry has presented hunting tourism opportunities at the international exhibition JAGD & HUND 2018 in Dortmund, Germany.
More guests from Germany are expected in Belarus in the near future!
New hunting opportunities are opening up for tourists and wildlife fans in Belarus.
Bison, moose, wood grouse, and wolf hunt offers were in great demand at the exhibition.
The most attractive destination for European hunters was Grodno oblast, which has 10 days visa-free regime starting 1 January this year.
The representatives of the Forestry Ministry met the heads of tourism companies from Germany, Bulgaria, Russia, Poland, Sweden, France, Italy and England.
As a result of negotiations the Belarusians signed several long-term agreements with German tour operators.
The deals include a bison hunt organised by Belgosokhota company and hunting tours in Pruzhany and Vileika in autumn this year.
A number of measures are taken to attract foreign hunters to the country:
- modernisation of hunting ranges,
- reconstruction of the existing facilities,
- and expanding the list of services, among others
In 2017 foreign hunters generated some 25% of the income of the hunting farms affiliated with the Forestry Ministry.
In Belarus, hunting for zubr, roe deer, deer, wild boar, hare, elk, wolf, partridge, geese, ducks, grouse and other animals is permitted.
Mind that activity si not cheap and you requires a special permission for hunting at hunting farms.
