It’s December in Romania. Are the bears still coming?

Bear Watching in Tusnad small 2

We are already in the second half of December and winter seems to avoid Romania so far. So why not enjoy another bear watching tour?

Yesterday we took Quentin, from France, to the area around the beautiful lake St. Anna, in Covasna county. It proved to be a wonderful evening, as we were the only guests in the bear hide.

After being transported at the safe bear hide located in the wild forests, we stood there, waiting for the wildlife. We enjoyed some really tasty shots of local palinka. And boy we needed it! It was freezing cold inside, much colder than outside, that’s for sure.

After about 3 shots and one and a half hours of waiting, a beautiful brown bear arrived. We almost missed it, as we were so concentrated on our phones. It slowly came in the clearing and began feeding. The squeaking we made inside the hide made the male bear a bit cautious but in the end, everything turned out to be fantastic.

Quentin was so pleased to see the majestic brown bear (Ursus arctos arctos) in the wild, especially because it was his first wildlife encounter, just meters away.

Thanks to this unusual good weather, we are still operating our bear watching tours in Brasov, so if you’re around, send us an inquiry and we will see what we can do 🙂
