Itinerary Romanian Carpathians hosts ~60% (approx. 5,500 bears) of the Brown Bear population from Europe. We offer you the opportunity to see and admire the brown bears in their own habitat, from a specially designed observation hide deep in the Transylvanian forest.

The forest rangers will take you deep in the forest, on a gravel road, you will continue walking for a few hundred meters to the hide where you will wait quietly for wildlife. There are high chances (statistically more then 85% chances) to spot the Carpathian Brown Bear, sometimes a female with cobs, sometimes a larger male bear, but you can also spot the wildboar, roe deer and red dear, wolves, linx and even some game birds.

8:00 pm-10:00 pm  –  arrival in Brasov.

NOTE: we cannot guarantee 100% that you will be able to see any of the wildlife listed above. Do not forget the that wildlife have their own way of living, and we, humans, try to approach them as much as possible in their natural habitat. Taking part in this tour you agree that you do not claim any refund in case you will not spot any wildlife.
