Bears are magnificent creatures!

Ocena 5/5
Did you know that more than half of Slovenia is covered by forest and for this reason is also a country with world’s richest densities of brown bears? This is also a reason why I have decide to go on wild bears observation tour in Loška dolina. At the beginning of the tour we have learn a bit about bear’s behaviour and also about how should we behave in order to have a successful observation tour. It took us about 15 minutes of driving and maybe 20 minutes of walking to reach an observation point from where we have seen a lot of animals and almost at the end of the tour also a king of this forest the brown bear. It really is a magnificent creature and definitely worth seeing. Very well organised tour with experienced guides which are also taking care of the safety of the group. A superb experience which I definitely recommend!
