Live out your dreams, experience the unspoilt vibe of the forest and take photographs you will be proud of.
You can book different tours intended for nature and wildlife photography enthusiasts that take you into the forests of the Dinaric Karst in Slovenia, where you can still find populations of all three wild beasts – the wolf, the lynx and the bear – accompanied by experienced guides and Slovenian wildlife experts. On the 4-day photography workshops you learn about photography from acclaimed European environmental photography experts and secretly watch the Ural owl, look for traces of otters and other animals, visit an abandoned bear’s lair and create panoramic photographs of the Green Karst.
Bear-watching towers for spotting the brown bear are located in the forests under the Natura 2000 protection. Near the area lies the Notranjska Regional Park and the Risnjak National Park just across the border in Croatia. The wonderful natural motifs of the karst phenomena, such as the seasonal Lake Cerknica, the subterranean lakes in Križna Cave and the picturesque Rakov Škocjan Valley, will make your holiday an unforgettable one.
The brown bear (Ursus arctors) is the biggest wild beast in Slovenia, which can weight over 200 kg. While it has already been exterminated in many other areas, there are still around 350 of these large beasts living in Slovenian forests.
The Sloveniabears.com brand manages a network of photography lookout towers, which enable photographers to capture the brown bear and other wild animals in ideal photographic conditions, taking into account the responsible and ethical behaviour towards nature and wildlife.
