See the majestic brown bear from a specially designed bear hide, situated at ground level, just 15 meters away from the bears

What to expect?

  • You will be picked up from your location in Brasov and driven 80 kilometers away, in the area of lake St. Anna.
    • Here, you will meet the ranger and after a short briefing, you will go 10 minutes in the forest until you reach the bear hide. Once inside, wait quietly for the bears to arrive.
    • You will be served with traditional home made palinka and you will be familiarized with the bears 's behavior. Once the bears arrive, take stunning shots with them, behind a mirror-like window. This ensures that the bears won 't see you inside, only you can see them. Remember to turn off your flash and focus assist light.
    • Tip for photographers: bring a tripod and a 70-200 mm lens or a 150-600 mm lens.
    • This bear hide is unique in Romania. Unlike the others, where tourists see bears from 30-40 meters away, in this one you have the chance to see these majestic animals from 10-15 meters away. Moreover, the viewing point is situated at ground level, unlike the other bear hides, where tourists stay at a higher point and see the food they get.
    • During your stay here, find out interesting facts about bear's life and behavior and get to know what to do to avoid bear encounters.
    • After spending around two hours inside , you will get back to the car and will be taken back to Brasov and dropped off at your accommodation in Brasov.
