Hiking & Wildlife Tracking from Brasov in the Carpathians

Iulia With: Iulia
The Carpathian Mountains are one of the most beautiful, raw and best preserved natural habitats of Europe! Romania has the largest brown bear population in Europe and many other wild animals who roam free in these vast areas. On this hiking trip from Brasov we enter their territory to look for signs of wildlife in their natural habitat and learn about nature - a unique experience in Romania!

    Off-road driving on Dambovita Valley from the village of Satic, the landscape changes quickly and you dive into wild forests, where signs of wildlife are common: otters in the river, tracks of deers, roe deers, wild boar, wolves and bear tracks. As we go deeper, nature takes its hold.

    From the dam of Pecineagu lake in Dambovita Valley we start our wildlife tracking trip around the lake with an off-road vehicle to certain places where we know brown bears like to look for berries, mushrooms and food. We check the observation cameras, look for tracks and other recent signs of wildlife presence in the area. You will learn about animal behaviour and see their natural environment.
