Bear Watching Jurišče

Lorella B.
Amazed by the wild life in region!

Ocena 5/5
Me and my husband Andrea were both struck by the beauty of Postojna Cave that is why we have decided to explore Karst phenomena a bit more. We went to the Eco Museum of Disappearing Lakes in Pivka where we have learned that famous Ljubljanica River is a river of seven names and that Pivka is actually also its first name? Mesmerized by the beauty of nature we have decided to join the Bear Watching tour and like this prolong our stay in this region. We have met with our guide in the small village called Juršče from where he took us in his vehicle to the observation point. It was a lovely day in the forest; we have seen a lot of animals, such as deers, birds, squirrels and bears. The tour was guided by a hunter who made sure that we were feeling safe at all time. We could also tell all the way from the beginning that he is a real expert on local flora and fauna. The tour is absolutely worth seeing!

While travelling to the hide you will learn all about the bear’s behaviour and also how to behave yourself in order to have a successful Bear Watching Tour. At the selected location you will be able to observe the nature until the sunset.
