Bears in Slovenia

Tour details

The northern end of the Dinaric Mountains is the kingdom of bears, whose population here is several hundred individuals. They inhabit picturesque karst areas, covered with a magnificent beech and fir forest. A dozen or so professional, safe photographic hides have been placed in this area, and the places have been selected in such a way as to provide photographers with a variety and attractiveness of the shots. Unlike in Scandinavia, you don't have to spend all night in the hide to photograph the bears. A whole afternoon is enough, which gives about 4-5 hours for one photo session.We will spend 4 afternoons in the bear hides. During four mornings, we will take a sightseeing and photographic tour of the area abounding in gorges and karst caves, we will also look for Ural owls, which are very numerous in these parts. Under favorable natural conditions, you will also be able to use a hide for a kingfisher and a garden hide for small birds at the drinking pool.
