Ready for a unique experience in Europe and Romania? Go with a wildlife researcher into Transylvania's wilderness near Brasov to see bears (and maybe other animals too) roaming free! The adventure and adrenaline of seeing wild animals from up close will be unforgettable!

Look out for bears!

The guide will drive in remote areas, maybe off-road or to good vantage points from where bears can be seen. We may see animals up close from inside the car - or we use binoculars to watch them from a safe distance. As nature can't be controlled, we don't know what to expect, but you can be sure we'll see something. And if not, I'll take you again for FREE!
