Optional Extras

Available only from May to October

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 taking amazing photos!

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 towards the preservation of local wildlife.

In recent years we had a 96% 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.

After having a longer waiting time due to the fact, we booked a private Tour, we entered a very nice hide in the woods. The bait was well prepared and after a while we were able to see not one but three bears and a cheeky fox :). A pretty nice experience. Highly recommended.

We weren’t sure that we were going to see anything because we went so late into the year and other companies were turning us down but we did. We saw them in mid October and it was incredible. We really liked the guy and the bears were beautiful. Definitely recommend this guy over the other ones we considered.
