1. From Brasov: Libearty Bear Sanctuary Guided Tour
Our Small-Group Trip to Libearty Bear Sanctuary from Brasov will take you from the city to Libearty Bear Sanctuary in Zarnesti. Over 110 brown bears saved from captivity or cruel conditions found a new and safe home in the 60 hectares sanctuary from Zarnesti, the largest of this type in Europe. The driver will take you to the Sanctuary, there you will meet the guide from the Sanctuary which will take you inside and explain you what is happening in this awesome place. The tour with the guide from the Bear Sanctuary takes about one hour and represents a walk along a forest path of approximately 2km. This way, you will discover the stories of the bears that are now living in the sanctuary, the purpose of this place and you may ask questions. The bears’ want to tell you something: This is not a zoo! It’s our forest. Please respect it! Do not throw us food, because we don’t need it! Please switch off your mobiles! Do not use the flashes! They bother us! Do not eat or drink in front of us! It’s rude! Stay together, follow the guide and listen patiently to our stories! Do not make any noise! Thus, we will know that you are our friends! NOTE: Children under five years are not allowed inside the “Libearty” Bear Sanctuary, for safety reasons, for the smooth running of the visit and for the welfare of the bears.
