Short Bear Watching Experience from Brasov

Simona With: Simona
Did you know that Romania has the largest brown bear population in Europe? In Transylvania and Brasov bears regularly descend from the Carpathian foothills to nearby towns looking for food! Let's go looking for them in their natural habitat, so how about a quick bear watching trip from Brasov? Join me on this short wildlife adventure and I'll tell you all about them - I'm a wildlife researcher!


Moments to expect during the bear watching tour near Brasov:

  • Going up to the bear forest hideout

    Going up to the bear forest hideout

    We will drive to a nearby forest up in the hills where our bear hide is located. This will be our observation point for the next 2-3 hours. You must keep silent, remain patient and get your cameras ready!

  • Waiting for bears (or other wild animals) to show up!

    Waiting for bears (or other wild animals) to show up!

    The hide offers an excellent viewing point - we just need to be lucky! As bears are wild animals, they come and feed only when they want to. So even though chances are very high, there are no guarantees they will come while we are there. It is possible that other nearby animals, such as lynx, foxes or wolves might smell the food and come - you never know until you come!

We'll need a deposit to save your spot and you'll pay the rest on arrival
