What you'll do

Hi and welcome to Romania :)
Before reading further, you need to know that this bear watching activity takes place in the wild, not in an enclosed area or at the bear sanctuary in Zarnesti. The animals are in their natural habitat and I cannot guarantee that you will see bears. However, the success rate is above 95%. Just in case you don't see any bears, you will be partially refunded.
Normally, I can pick you up from any location within Brasov city. Just message me before so I can know your whereabouts.
After I pick you up, we'll drive North about 80 kilometres away, in the area around lake St. Anna, at the border between Covasna and Harghita counties. Here, there are two bear hides designed by a world famous wildlife photographer. These are perfect for wildlife photography and for guests who want to see the bears from a very close distance, from inside a safe bear hide. Sometimes the bears come as close as 2-3 meters. Don't worry, there are one way mirror windows so the animals won't see you inside. One of the hides is accessible after a 10 minute easy hike, the other one is a bit more remote and takes a bit longer.
Once inside, we'll stay there for about two hours and admire the bears coming. Don't forget to turn off the flash and your camera's focus assist light.
Just before it gets dark, I will drive you back to Brasov and drop you off at your accommodation.
Other things to note
Bears are unpredictable wild animals. We cannot guarantee 100% bear sightings, as bears can be affected by weather conditions, tourists misbehavior and other factors.

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.

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.

Due to the changment on the bears behavior we have switched our experience in a different one because we went to the Liberty Sanctuary. My guide was deeply knowledgeable and on the way we had great conversation. By the way the bears are so beautiful that you sometime forget they are predators
