    Stop: 3 hours
    In the afternoon, your guide will pick you up from your accommodation in Brasov. After a 20 minute drive to the outskirts of the city, you will arrive at a meeting point where you will meet the ranger. After a short briefing, you will hike for about 20 minutes in the forest until you reach the bear hide. The hide is specially built away from any public roads, near a clearing where bears usually come. Once inside, wait quietly for the bears to arrive. Your guide will explain all the essential things about the bears but if you have any questions, please ask him. Once the bears have arrived, take photos and videos and watch their behavior. It is important to keep quiet though. These are wild animals and they are very cautious. They will run away at the slightest sound. It's important to know that this activity takes place in the wild, not in a reservation or in a sanctuary. All the animals you will see are in their natural habitat. In the end, just before darkness falls, you will get back to the car and your guide will drop you off at your accommodation in Brasov.

Hi, Thank you for the review. I still cannot believe how much activity was there at the bear hide. The good weather helped a lot, that's for sure. Seeing three wild boars and a mother bear with three cubs (+ one male) was a thrilling experience :) Looking forward to seeing you again in Romania. Best regards, Robert Lazar

We took the tour with our friendly guide Robert. He gives us plenty information on the actual situation of bears in Braşov region. We walk trough the forest in an easy path with some other tourists and a ranger. We sat at the wooden shelter with big windows . Then ; it’s waiting

I can highly recommend this tour operator. Contrary to other operators you go with a guide providing very useful background information. Seeing the bears so close in their natural environment is a great experience I will remember.

Hi Stephan, Thanks for the review and for emphasizing on the presence of the guide. Having a guide nearby to explain the important information is essential for a good bear watching experience. But for other tours as well. Looking forward to seeing you soon. Best regards, Robert Lazar

Hi Olga, thank you for your review. We're glad we saw the brown bear and we hope you guys didn't have any dangerous bear encounters while hiking in the Romanian wilderness 🙂. We'd be curious to hear how your hiking in Romanian mountains went. Looking forward to welcoming you again in Romania! Best Regards, Irina
