Wild bears near Brasov

Wild bears near Brasov constitutes a perfect opportunity to enrich your visit in Brasov area and see wild brown bears

High season is from May till October (possible also on other months, do contact us for availability and opportunity). The short visit takes place in the afternoon/evening (precise hour to be confirmed) until almost dark.

We see wild bears near Brasov from a hide. The hide is a facility where wild bears are attracted with food for close-up observations. The main purpose of this place is to keep bears interested in this part of the forest instead of feeding from the garbage bins in the towns and villages around. Usually we are successful in seeing bears, but as there are wild animals involved – nothing is guaranteed! They might decide to come for the food only after dark :)

Program Description

Wild bears near Brasov involves an easy walk of app. 5-10 minutes on easy-to-moderate difficulty path to get to the bear hide. This is sort of a “tree-house” where you sit and watch wild bears through a window. You need to wear comfortable shoes for walking in the forest, dark and dull colors for the top and no strong smells. You also need to be relatively still and quiet for about one hour inside the hide.

You will need to wear dull colors and appropriate clothes and shoes for a short walk in the forest, and to not use any lights while taking photos (this includes the light on your phone screen used to take selfies)
Important notes on bear watching:
– the food the foresters provide at the hide constitutes only a small part of the bears’ diet, and most bears do not even come to the hide as the forest provides more than enough food for them.
– the bears that do come to the hide are very aware that we are present there, but we still need to keep a low voice and be relatively still for a few hours.
– there is a short and safe walk from the place where we park the car to the hide itself and back (app. 10 minutes on almost flat terrain); you are always accompanied by a wildlife guide and a ranger, who both know how to handle any “unforeseen” situation
– you stay at the hide until the light starts to drop or until the ranger decides it is time to move out because of the bears’ activity on the way
– the photo fee is included for non-commercial photos, but you will have to avoid using any kind of light, to not disturb the bears

You need to avoid using the flash, cover the red light on you camera (visible when the light decreases) and minimize the light on your phone screens for selfies
As this is a very popular activity – you need to book it way in advance

Transport is not included, but can be provided upon request for an extra fee

This activity is very popular. It is very likely there will be other people joining your group at the bear hide. These people might come also from other tour operators and we cannot be held responsible for their behavior and state of health
