Bear Watching in Mašun

Ocena 5/5
After our hiking trip on very well marked trails of Snežnik we have decided to go on the Bear Watching Tour which starts close by in Mašun. The tour was very well organised and our experienced guide was a real expert on local animals and plants. We have met in Mašun where we have learned how to behave in order to have a successful observation. We have also learned all about behaviour patterns of local animals. At first we have seen many deers and there were a lot of birds in vicinity. The bears join the party after approximately one hour of patient waiting. Seeing the mighty brown bear was a real pleasure and a real treat after the requied wait. For us it was the perfect Ending of our exciting day in nature. The tour is definitely worth of recommendation. We recommend it especially to those who know how to appreciate the nature.
