Slovenianbears manages a network of 8 locations and 20 photo hides, that fit 2-4 persons each. The hides have been tailored to the needs of photographers, hence they have been selected carefully regarding location and light availability, they are approximately at eye level with the bears, and they are equipped with bean bags and offer options to fix tripod heads.
In June the days are at their longest, light conditions are optimal. With a little luck it’s now possible to see female bears with their offspring from this season.
