Why Travelers Choose This Tour
A naturalist guide increases your chances of seeing wild brown bears in the wild twofold.
We visited the mountains. After An half hourcride we arrived in the woods.
The walk to the shelter took about 15 min. And was pleasant tough we had to keep quiet so we wouldn’ t score the bears.
After 20 min we sax the first bear: a young male. Half An hout later we were lucky and a preagnant big female made her appearence. She ate all the bate So there were no more bears after that. But very happy to See these beautiful animale in there normaal habitat was a Nice experience. Though you have to stay on a rather big distantie we could take a lot of impressie pictures.
We saw two bears - male and female - and one fox. Very nice experience to watch bears in their natural environment. The guide was very informed about the bears, he really loves these animals and take care about the wilderness. Great communication before the trip and during it. Thanks for the experience!
Alex was a great tour guide. We had an excellent time and viewed the same bear several times. Alex had a lot of information for us and answered all of our questions about bears and other animals very well.
The guide, Tiberius, works for an NGO which looks after the reserve where the bear-watching takes place. He was very knowledgeable and clearly cares deeply about his work. We saw two bears during the evening- a really memorable experience.
Very well organised tour to see the black bears. Guide Tiberius arrived on time to collect us from our hotel and drove us to the mountains about 40 minutes away. A short walk to the hide and we sat for a little time before a large male bear came and started eating the food put out for them. Then a smaller female bear arrived and was very vocal in her efforts to chase the male bear away. We also saw another bear grab a large fish that had been put out for them and go off into the woods and then another came to eat. A smaller bear was in the undergrowth and we just saw it before it scuttled off.
Really well run and interesting tour.. thoroughly enjoyed it. May have to come back!
We saw 6-7 different bears, including a Cub. Tiberius our guide was very informative. And explained the life cycle of the bears. He was forthcoming that there could be a bear encounter. But we were not fearful and advised us how to act. Worthwile experience. And recommend. If not much of a climber our guide was very helpful. And there are handrails.
