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.

Ein wirklich tolles Erlebnis. Die Bären in freier Wildbahn zu erleben ist wirklich ein Highlight. Unbedingt zu empfehlen. Wir hätten tatsächlich mehr nachfragen sollen, wie man sich bei einer Begnung mit einem Bären verhält, da wir am nächsten Tag einem ca 100kg schwerem Bär beim Wandern über den Weg gelaufen sind.
