Admire the king of the forest from a close distance safely!

The entire family can learn about bears and other large predators safely on guided bear watching tours. Bear watching is often done from wooden huts with holes for cameras and binoculars.

In addition to bears, you can see other wild animals in the wilderness, such as wolves, wolverines or golden or white-tailed eagles

If you so wish, you can spend the entire light-filled summer night bear watching, or admire bear visits only until midnight. Some bear watching trips also include snacks – find out what the adventure includes from the product description.

Kids are also welcome on bear watching excursions if they can stay as quiet as a mouse and not scare the bears. 

Bear watching is available from May to September, prices start from 80 €/person. Pre-bookings required.
