Hike in the Tatras exceeded expectations! My friends and I were staying in Zakopane, PL and decided to book a tour with Erik as we really wanted to see a European brown bear in the wild! Erik was so helpful, especially when booking the trip. He gave great advice, was quick to respond and the whole booking experience was seamless. We drove over the border into Slovakia the morning of our booked tour and met Erik and the rest of our group who were all lovely. After a hefty hike in during darkness, we were rewarded with a glorious sunrise and incredible panoramic views of the beautiful mountain range and valley that we were walking through. Once the sun was up, our gaze headed to the top mountain meadows on the search for a bear. Unbelievably on our walk back through the valley one of our guides spotted a very large brown bear high up in a meadow, minding his own business and what looked like, feasting on berries. It was incredible!! Erik was knowledgable, professional, helpful and I would highly recommend booking a trip with him. We will certainly be booking again in the future! Lily, Harry & Steven. Bristol, UK.

It was a great day with a great guide. Erik showed us a beatifull valley. He is not only full of knowledge regarding bears, but also explain it to people in a funny and practical way, so everybody can get maximum of it. We were lucky to see a bear clearly on a beatifull day in Hight Tatras with great people around. Highly reccomend it to everyone.

Erik was very professional in organising the tour, monitoring the weather and made adjustment so we would have better chance to spot a bear :) before the hike started, Erik explained an overview of the trail and where the bears' territories were. I had a lot of fun in the hike, just chatting with Erik and the other participants. Erik was very knowledgeable about bears and the environment, we took a few stops for some fun facts about the forests :) we spotted 1 bear at the end and watched her movement for a while, pretty close as well :D
Tips: bring a warmer layer for the top, it can get very chilly with the wind and morning humidity (i wasnt prepared lol..). Also waterproof hiking shoes would be better

This tour is an adventure for itself. Awesome company, landscape and profound expertise. Highly recommended!

We got picked up early by Erik, our tour guide. He drove with us to a beautiful valley in the High Tatras, where we went for a hike amidst a beautiful landscape. We looked for bear tracks, bears, mountain goats and deers, chatted along our way and enjoyed being in the nature only by ourselves. Erik is a very sociable and easy-going person with lots of life experience. He shared with us his knowledge about the region and the bears and showed us his most promising sites for bear watching. Although seeing a bear is of course not guaranteed on such tours, we were lucky that Erik with his binocular and eagle eyes spotted a bear on the mountain. We were also eager to look for bears on our own, thereby spotting mountain goats and deers.

Although this tour is about bear watching, my wife and I both agreed within the first hour of this day trip (i.e. before even having the chance of seeing a bear) that the tour was absolutely worth it.

If you are curious about Erik and the bears: He appears in a freely available German TV documentary called "Sagenhaft - Die Hohen Tatras." It gives you a good impression about the region, about Erik's character and, most importantly, his sense of humour (keyword: bear poo). :-)

It was a very early start to the day starting our hike just after 5am, but it certainly was worth the pain of getting up so early. First we hiked up through the forest in the national park, where our guide Erik kept us entertained with some challenges and his great knowledge about the area and the animals living there. Once we got out of the forest, we started to look for the bears and spotted several bears in their home.
Erik was great all the way and was as happy as ourselves to see these great animals.
A definite recommendation!

With Erik I have experienced one of the most beautiful days in the mountains ever. The bearwatching hiking tour caught my attention immediately when I had found it on internet. The reality even exceeded my expectations. During the tour we could observe in total 7 bears (2 mothers with 5 cubs, 8 deer, 1 chamois and 1 fox. Erik was a really professional guide, who answered all of our questions and told us also plenty of interesting facts and stories. I can highly recommend this trip to everyone. I am looking forward to the next interesting trips with Erik.

We have booked this day trip with Erik during our extended trip to high tatras to try sth new. Erik has completely overachieved our expectations and organized for us an amazing day in a very quiet and beautiful part of tatras. He is a very knowledgeable guide that knows his field and he was able not to only answer our bears and other local animals related questions,but was also a great company to spend a day with. We were lucky to be able to find not only bears but also watch other wild animals such as mountain goat called Kamzik, dears, a snake and local birds. I cant recommend this trip more. Just make sure u get a proper walking shoes as its also a bit of hike and get a good sleep as its an early start trip. For all who decide to join i hope you will have at least same experience as me and my friend.

An incredible day with an incredible guide. Erik was the perfect person to take us into the mountains. His love for the land and wildlife shone through. Seeing a bear was just the cherry on the cake. Can’t recommend this trip enough to anyone lucky enough to be in this beautiful part of the world. I’ll be back to join you on another tour. See you soon Erik!
