Full description
Meet your driver-guide at your hotel in Brasov in the late afternoon and make a 30 minute drive in an air-conditioned vehicle to the forest. Gain fascinating insights into the lives of brown bears as you travel. Learn how their sharp sense of smell is vital in ensuring their survival and how they can grow to enormous sizes, with some males reaching up to 770 pounds (350 kgs).  Meet the ranger who will outline the rules you must follow in order to respect the bears' habitat and stay safe. Then walk about 20 minutes or drive with a jeep to the observatory where you can observe the bears as they go about their everyday life. Take photos of the bears interacting, playing, and resting.  After about two hours, return to the vehicle and get dropped off back at your hotel in Brasov with wonderful memories of these amazing creatures.

Excellent trip. The guy - Trayan, was very kind and easy-going. He picked us at the exact time with a very nice Mercedes van. We saw several bears - three males and one female with two cubs. The observation was for about one and a half hours in a cosy cabinet. Everything was perfect. Strongly recommend!

A really great experience. Experiencing the bears in the wild is really a highlight. Definitely recommended. We really should have asked more about how to behave when encountering a bear, because the next day we ran into a bear weighing about 100kg while hiking.
