Program Description

This is a trip for the physically and mentally fit people only, with basic accommodation, no toilet or shower, mountaineering food and not very much sleep.
Important! As we are talking about wildlife in the wild there are no guarantees that you will see anything. We will take you to the best spots and maximize your chances to enjoy wildlife and especially wolves, but weather and other uncontrollable factors can cause lack of success. From your side, you should make sure to wear appropriate clothing, wear comfortable walking boots/shoes and absolutely no „smelly” things (perfumes, detergents, creams etc)!

Transfer to Brasov area to a former hunting lodge. The living conditions are rudimentary (one room for the entire group, sleeping on wooden beds using sleeping bags and pads, rudimentary toilet, no shower), but the location is the best for wolf watching. The cooking is done by your guide, but your input is always welcome!
Early morning you will roam together with your guide to get in the best location for wolf watching. As wolves are most active at sunrise and sunset you will need to be out in the field at those moments to see them! In fact, the more time you spend out of the cabin – the more chances you have to see wolves and other species!
On the 4th night after you come back from the field you will be driven to a guesthouse for a well deserved shower, tasty home-cooked 3 course dinner and good night sleep.
Depending on the time of your departure you will be driven back to the airport.
