Brasov: Brown Bear & Wildlife Watching

7. Brasov: Brown Bear & Wildlife Watching

Head deep in the forests surrounding Brasov. The vehicle that will pick you up and bring you to the forest will stop approximately 200-300 meters away from the observation hide. Walk for a short distance to the hide and then wait quietly, for the wildlife to come out. Everything is real and wild. Please note that there is no 100% guarantee that you will spot any wildlife, but statistically, there are very high chances to spot brown bears, and also lynx, foxes, wolves, and wild boars. Once the sun is setting and it is getting darker, start making your way back and return to Brasov, as you will not be able to see anything in the dark and walking through the forest during the night can be dangerous. The meeting time is set according to the dusk time and can, therefore, vary a little. The starting time for this adventure runs from 6 PM in mid-summer time to 3 PM in November, when the days have already become very short.

Συστήνεται ανεπιφύλακτα ! Θα ήταν καλό να αφιερώσετε μια μέρα για να επισκεφτείτε το χωριό brasov και τα κάστρα ! Θα σας αποζημιώσει και γ διαδρομή και το μέρος ! Ο marius ο ξεναγός και οδηγός μας , πολύ καλός και επεξηγηματικός ! Μας έλεγε όλες τις ιστορίες και τους μύθους από τα κάστρα ! Το 12 ωρο ταξίδι με το βανάκι πολύ αναπαυτικό ! Extra tip : δέστε καλά τις ζώνες σας γιατί θα απογειωθείτε !!!!!

Really enjoyed the day despite long delays in traffic returning to Bucharest which meant we didn't get back until about 21:30 which made it a long day. Coach was warm and comfortable and the guide was very good at explaining the historical background to the various sites. Peles was gorgeous in the snow and we enjoyed Bran and Brasov too. I'd recommend the trip and it was great value for the day
