    We start our journey in Podu Dambovitei or Brasov (on request) around noon and enter Fagaras Mts. by offroad car. We leave the car and start hiking our way deeper into the mountains with only essentials with us. On our way, we become familiar with the area and start looking for signs or tracks of wild animals and other forest-dwelling creatures!

    We hike our way up the mountains to reach the wildlife observation hide at Comisu, located in a completely wild and not unpopulated area. Made out of wood with a rustic feeling and large windows, it blends in with the natural setting and offers spectacular views of the surrounding area! Animals sometimes pass in the area so we can do wildlife observation 'from home' :)

  • Introduction to wildlife watching and tracking

    Introduction to wildlife watching and tracking

    During this trip you will learn about Mother Nature's ecosystem in the Carpathian Mts. Our specialised mountain guide will give you binoculars and teach you about animals' natural habitat and take you on wildlife tracking and observation trips. We check forest observation cameras, look for animal tracks and enjoy the superb views in the area while hiking! Keep in mind that seeing animals is not guaranteed as nature cannot be controlled but in these parts the chances are very high: bears, deer, boars, foxes, eagles, etc.
