Fans of elk should head to Poland’s Biebrza Marshes — a vast tract of wetlands on the country’s eastern frontier. Responsible Travel offers tours of the reserve in winter — the best time to spot elk stomping the snowy ground, as well as gnawing beavers and paddling otters. By night, listen out for the howls of wolf packs (they’re also big fans of elk).
