Short Bear Watching Experience from Brasov

Simona With: Simona 26
Did you know that Romania is home to the largest brown bear population in Europe? We are the last true wilderness reserve. Bear families and other animals regularly descend from the Carpathian foothills around Brasov to look for food. Join a wildlife expert on this short adventure trip to an observation hide to see animals in their natural habitat!


Moments to expect during the bear watching tour near Brasov:

  • To the bear hideout in the forest

    To the bear hideout in the forest

    We will drive to a nearby forest up in the hills around Brasov where our bear observation hide is located. This is where we stay for the next 2-3 hours. You must keep silent, remain patient and prepare your cameras ready. Children can come but need to stay quiet. The forest is silent and we don't want to scare the bears and wild animals away!

  • Waiting for the bears to show up!

    Waiting for the bears to show up!

    The hide offers an excellent viewing point - we just need to be ready! As bears are wild animals, they come and feed only when they want, as nature cannot be controlled. So even though the chances of seeing them are very high, there are no guarantees they will come. It's also possible that other animals will show up (lynx, foxes or wolves) - so you might be very lucky!

  • Bear season and other wildlife

    Bear season and other wildlife

    The brown bears of Romania come out when they want :) at the end of winter (late March or early April). They spend the summer roaming the Carpathian Mts, raising their cubs and looking for food. As do other wild animals like foxes, deer, wolves or boars. Bears retreat to their dens in mid-October - so this is a perfect summer activity!
