Romania it’s an amaizing place for BIRDS and Bears photograpy. This tour is dedicated to Wildlife Photographers with high demands. We’ll search for birds in mountains area (moderate level trekking) and we’ll shoot bears from the best hide for photographers, with the bears at the same level with the photographer.

Target species:

Brown Bear – the best seasons are March – June and September – December. Can be also very interesting sometime in January – March IF they don’t hibernate. Bears on snow … hmmm, what a dream :-). We shoot from the best hide, through glass.

You can choose between PRIVATE HIDE – we’ll take the hide only for your group (this means always a booking long in advance) or SHARED HIDE – you’ll share the hide with other visitors. Also Foxes and Wild Boars are coming sometime to the hide.

Chamoix – Can be seen anytime in our tours, sometime very close.

Wall Creeper – A difficult bird. Best season is December – May. We shoot from walking or from camouflage nets.

Ural Owl – Best time December – May. We know the best places where they hunt.

Of course, many other species are here but this are the most important.
