Built by a professional photographer, the bear hides in the Tusnad area are designed to offer tourists the best bear watching experience in Romania. A one-way mirror window prevents bears from seeing inside so that tourists can safely watch these animals from as close as 10 meters. Sometimes they even come right to the windows. The bear hides are specially built on the ground, at the same level with the animals and they are completely safe. Moreover, they are perfect for professional and also amateur photographers. Inside, there is enough space to sit down and relax while enjoying this wonderful experience. We are against wildlife hunting and because we promote sustainable tourism, we want our guests to see living bears in their natural habitat, not at the ZOO or in a reservation. You will be picked up from your location in Brasov and taken to Tusnad area, where you will participate at the bear watching activity. In the end, you will be dropped off at your location in Brasov.

Fringed by the peaks of the Southern Carpathian Mountains and resplendent with gothic, baroque and renaissance architecture, as well as a wealth of historical attractions, Brasov is one of the most visited places in Romania. The location of the city at the intersection of trade routes linking the Ottoman Empire and western Europe, together with certain tax exemptions, allowed Saxon merchants to obtain considerable wealth and exert a strong political influence in the region. This was reflected in the city's German name, Kronstadt, as well as in its Latin name, Corona, meaning Crown City (hence, the coat of arms of the city which is a crown with oak roots). Fortifications were erected around the city and continually expanded, with several towers maintained by different craft guilds, according to medieval custom.

Almost all the trips that go to the Bucegi Natural Park are made from the part of Sinaia, which is the tourist part and where there are always large crowds both people and traffic. We prefer to start the excursion on the opposite side, the west side of the Bucegi, which is the authentic, wild part, where you really enjoy nature and where, apart from shepherds with their herds of cows and sheep, we rarely find other people .
