What you'll do
You'll be picked up from your location in Brasov and driven 70 kilometers to the area of Tusnad, where we have two bear hides that are available only for tourists. On your way you will pass through beautiful villages and countryside so please ask me about anything. After a 90 minutes drive we will arrive to the meeting point with the specialized ranger. Depending on weather conditions and group size, we will choose between the two bear hides. One of them is near Tusnad and the other one is near the volcanic lake St. Anna. The first is accessible by a 4wd car or by a horse drawn cart and the second one is accessible after a 400 meter easy hike. Once arrived at the location, we will quietly enter the bear hide and wait patiently for the animals to arrive. Remember to turn off your flash and focus assist light and silent your phone. Learn interesting things about these animals and take amazing shots for your Instagram. Bears are very shy animals, so try to remain as silent as possible and avoid any kind of light inside the hide. In the end, just before darkness falls, exit the bear hide quietly and return to the car. You will be taken back to Brasov and dropped off at your location.

I am taking tourists for bear watching since April 2018. I love nature and respect wildlife, therefore I am against hunting. Since I discovered this activity, I've learnt a lot about bears and wildlife in general. Despite many legends, bears are very shy animals and won't attack people unless provoked. Together with me, you will go deep in the forest to a specially designed safe bear hide, built by a professional photographer, so bring your camera to take amazing shots of these majestic animals. All my guests were very pleased of my services so far and you won't be disappointed.
You will be picked up and dropped of at your location in Brasov. Transport will be made with a 6+1 Peugeot 807.

Where you'll be
We will be watching the bears from inside a specially designed safe bear hide. It was built by a professional wildlife photographer, so this experience will get the bears as close as 10-15 meters from you. The position of the bear hide and the surrounding area makes this experience the best bear watching tour you can find in Romania.
