Bear watching experience near Brasov
Thanks to the relatively low level of human intervention, Romania has become home to the largest brown bear population in Europe. Here, in the heart of the Carpathian mountains, you have the chance to observe these majestic animals in their natural habitat, find out interesting facts about the bear life in the wilderness and capture unique moments with your camera.
Join us for a short bear-watching adventure trip in the forests near Brașov, together with a specialized forest ranger that will answer all your questions.
What makes the tour with us different is that we will teach you about bears life, winter habits, diet and mating. We strongly believe this is a great opportunity to learn, apart from taking amazing pictures.Itinerary

Sinca Veche, Sinca Veche, Suceava County, Northeast Romania
In the afternoon, we will pick you up from your accommodation in Brasov. After a 1 hour drive, we will arrive in a secluded valley, surrounded by nature. After a short briefing, together with the ranger, we will drive for about 15 minutes deep in the forest, to where the bears roam free.
Quietly, we will get out of the car and walk for 2-3 minutes until we reach a safe bear hide located near a clearing. The hide is built on wooden pillars and is situated at approximately 3 meters above the ground, to allow a better perspective of the area.
Once the bears arrive, we need to keep silent not to scare them off.
We can take photos or videos but turn our flashes off.
After about 2 hours, we will get back to the car, quietly, and drive back to Brasov, where we will drop you off at your accommodation.
