You will start your adventure with a pickup from your accommodation in Brasov. After meeting your driver, you will go to the St. Anna Lake area, around 80 km from Brasov. Here, you will meet the ranger and after a quick briefing, you will walk 10 minutes in the forest until you reach the bear hide.
Once inside, you have to wait quietly for the bears to arrive. You will be served with traditional homemade palinka and you will be familiarized with the bears' behavior. Once the bears arrive you will have an extraordinary opportunity to take amazing pictures and have a closer look at these majestic animals.
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 them 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 feed that is given to them. During your stay here, find out interesting facts about the 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.
