Full description
You will begin your guided day trip in the afternoon when you are picked up from your hotel in Brasov and driven 43 miles (70km) to Tusnad. Then, together with your guide, you will meet an expert ranger who will take you deep into the forest to the bear hides. The hides have been built by professional wildlife photographers and are 100% safe. Because they contain a mirror-like window blocking the animals’ view of the inside, the bears sometimes come as close as one meter away from your enclosure.  Once inside the hide, you will wait quietly for the bears to arrive and learn interesting facts about their behavior while sipping on Palinka, a regional alcoholic drink. Once the bears arrive, be sure you have your camera ready with the flash turned off to take amazing photos of these majestic animals in their natural habitat. If you are lucky and nothing alarms the bears, you will have ample time to observe and take plenty of photos.  Finally, just before dusk, you will be returned safely back to your vehicle to be driven back to Brasov and dropped off at your hotel.
