Overview
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.

So first of all: I am amazed by the tour in total. The organisation, the people and what I got to see (photos below). You will be driven into the woods to a little hut run by a forest ranger. He will spread out a bag of corn just in front of the huts window. Soon enough a few

Hi Peter, Thank you for your detailed review. I hope it wasn't too much palinka for you :) As for the bears, it's very important to see them in the wild, in their natural habitat, instead of taking pictures with them looking in the dumpsters. We have so many bears in Romania and seeing them with a minimum of intervention is the key. Looking forward to seeing you again in Brasov, why not, for a wildlife tracking tour! Regards, Robert Lazar Guide
