Try bear watching in Slovakia with us! We do not use hides, we do not feed them.

Bear watching in Slovakia, day tour different than others! You will have to get up early!!!
Seeing the brown bear in its own territory is a very exciting experience.

The Tatra Mountains National Park offers many places where you can find them.

But only we and our bear guides can take you there!!!

After picking you up from your hotel we will take you to our starting point.

Please, be ready to cycle through the valley as we need to get to bear spoting points with the best views which are situated up in the mountains. Bike will save your energy and your time.

On todayˈs bearwatching trip we will visit locations and we will observe them from a safe distance. Remember that every day here is different.

It varies according to the weather and our chances of spoting them also depend on our timing and the season. More than 150 brown bears live in the Tatra Mountains. We hope to be lucky enough to see them in their bear territory with you.

For more information and details, please contact us.
