We had a great time best watching. Of course we had to wait a while before they came (it’s not a zoo ;) before we went into the forest into the wooden cabin we got some information about bears in Slovenia. BUT: our guide could hardly communicate with us (as we did not speak Slovenian and he didn’t speak English or German), it was enough to get the most important stuff but not more. And on the way back out of the forest he drove so fast that we lost him and almost got lost on the forest as we didn’t know where to turn ... a bit unnecessary stressful experience. We would still do it again but record the way when driving there!

Hi Alexandra, thank you very much for your review and for joining our memorable 🐻 watching experience. We expect the bear in the silence and also we have to be quiet in the forest before we reach the hides. That is why we provide all bear facts and instructions in English language prior to leaving for the hide. We are very glad to hear that you had great time and that Slovenian bears were very active that day!

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.

There are so many things to do in Slovenia, you can’t even think of. We wanted to see something special and different so we went bear watching. A beautiful experience we will remember forever. Perfect organization, great guide. Everything went as described and planned. If you want to step into something different I would recommend to go here with these guys.

The agency was very flexible and kind. The guide was great, english spoken and funny. He showed us around and told us a lot about history of Slovenian bears and country. Great work and special thanks to the agency back office.

My girlfriend took me there by surprise. I didn’t know what was happening until we arrived to the hunters’ shelter. Super wonderful nature experience. The weather was fine, the temperature not too hot. The only thing to recommend, eat before you go there and don’t bring any food - it’s forbidden to eat in the cabin, so I wasn’t allowed to eat the snacks I brought. :-) However, do it, you will have a great time!
