about

Brown bear is the largest carnivore in Europe. Meeting with the animal in its natural habitat is certainly an unforgettable, extraordinary experience! It creates a special feeling of being one with the nature and a person develops positive attitude towards this amazing animal. We offer you the unique opportunity to meet and observe the bear. Experienced local guide will take you to one of the three observatories in the woods and he will be your guide at every step of the incredible journey.
Bears in the south of Slovenia are something what you might see often, as they are the real kings in our forests. We have a very large family of bears, somewhere between 1000 and 1500 members. Brown bear is a permanent resident in extensive forests in Notranjska region in Slovenia.
In order to look for food, the bear needs a lot of space. He walks through unspoiled forests, drinks water in clean streams in the middle of the woods. He eats the forest fruits, mushrooms, insects, rodents and carcass too.
