The Area

The Homestead on the Hill is a dream come true for those who are weary of city noise, a haven for lovers of the wildernss and wonders of nature.

The Homestead on the Hill lies on the very edge of the Ruś village, in the heart of the Biebrza National Park, on the banks of the river Narew.

In the spring, the marshes are loud with hundreds of species of birds. Frogs sing their green hearts out in the evenings; neighbours include moose, deer, beavers and otters. The many nearby oxbow lakes and two rivers brim with fish all year round. Bicycle trips through the region are always a delight.




The Homestead is 3 km away from the town of Wizna, 23 from Łomża, 35 from Tykocin, 60 from Białystok, and 165 from the capital city of Warsaw- from there, it is easily accessible via the E67 route running from Warsaw to Białystok.

The Homestead is a wonderful base from which to set out in exploration of the region. Sights to see include the Narew National Park, the collapsed bridge in Kruszewo, the village of Góra Strękowa, the river crossing in Śliwno-Waniewo, the Red Marsh Nature Reserve, the settlements of Choroszcz, Kiermusy and Tykocin.
