Join wildlife photographer Bret Charman on a five-night visit to Slovenia’s southern Dinaric Alps region in search of brown bears and Ural owls.
From our base in the Dinaric Alps we will explore the surrounding Notranjska region, famed not only for our main highlights of viewing brown bears and Ural owls, but for also its karst topography and scenery.
Our mornings will vary with walks to view Ural owls along with visits to intricate cave networks and disappearing lakes, whilst our afternoons and evenings will be spent in purpose built photography hides to observe the local brown bear population.
Read Bret's blog to learn more about watching bears in Slovenia.
The full itinerary detail is available on our website.
You should note: Wildlife is extremely wary around people and patience is an absolute must – you will spend up to five hours at a time in the hides. When in the hides there will be no access to toilet facilities. A full briefing on hide conduct will be given on your first night of the tour. Due to the various landscapes we visit - which can at times be rocky and uneven underfoot with some hides being accessible by ladder only - a reasonable level of fitness is required for this tour. The exact order of the itinerary may change depending on local conditions.
