Bear watching in the Land of Volcanoes

Built by a professional photographer, the bear hides in the Tusnad area are designed to offer tourists the best bear watching experience in Romania. A one-way mirror window prevents bears from seeing inside so that tourists can safely watch these animals from as close as 10 meters. Sometimes they even come right to the windows. The bear hides are specially built on the ground, at the same level with the animals and they are completely safe. Moreover, they are perfect for professional and also amateur photographers. Inside, there is enough space to sit down and relax while enjoying this wonderful experience. We are against wildlife hunting and because we promote sustainable tourism, we want our guests to see living bears in their natural habitat, not at the ZOO or in a reservation. You will be picked up from your location in Brasov and taken to Tusnad area, where you will participate at the bear watching activity. In the end, you will be dropped off at your location in Brasov.
