Experience the thrill of bear-watching in the pristine natural forests of Slovenia. Follow a wildlife expert deep into the forest, where you will meet Slovenia’s native brown bear through the wide windows of a safe wooden lookout – perfect for this unforgettable experience! In the wild, bears will very rarely approach humans. If they smell you, they will quickly go in the other direction – and you will never see them. That is why our lookout is smell-isolated, allowing bears to come into close viewing range. In addition to the mighty bear, you may often be able to see wild foxes, martens, deer, and badgers. Wolves were present twice during the bear-watching this season.

As you learn all about these magnificent creatures and the woods in which they live, you will also be contributing to a good cause, as some of your fees go directly toward the preservation of local wildlife.

In recent years we had a very high likelihood of seeing a Slovenian wild bear. In case that bear does not appear on the day of your experience, we offer a 50% discount if you rebook this experience.

In our hides, we can welcome 4 to 6 guests with our guide.
