The brown bear population in Romania is definitely one of the treasures of this country. It is said that it represents 40% of the entire bear population in Europe. For years, these animals have been killed by trophy hunters but during the last years bear watching activities have become more and more popular. Escorted by a specialized ranger, head into the wilderness, stay in a specially designed hide and wait for the bears to come. During the time you will find out fascinating details about their lives and how their sharp sense of smell helps them survive in these harsh conditions. When they finally appear, watch them feed or play and take memorable photos or videos from just meters away. If you're lucky, you can spot wild boars, deer, foxes and in very rare cases, lynx or wolves. In the end, just before it gets dark, head back to the cars and finish this unforgettable 3 hour experience that will surely give you chills.

Itinerary:
In the evening, you will arrive at a designated place near Brașov. From here, you will be escorted by a specialized ranger and you will get into a 4×4 vehicle that will take you deep into the forest. Before reaching the bear hide you have another 10 minutes of hiking. When you finally arrive at the hide, settle in and wait quietly for the bears to arrive.

Enjoy these magnificent animals in their natural habitat and seize the opportunity to take some photos or videos with their behavior. If you are lucky, you can see also wild boars, deers, foxes and why not, lynx or wolves. In the end of the tour you will get back to the cars and return to Brașov. The entire activity is about 3 hours long and usually takes place between 6 PM to 9 PM, from Monday to Saturday. As this is a very popular activity among tourists it is better to book in advance.
