Evening we will go into bear observatory where we can see in safety wild bears and, in some days, wild boars.
We will leave the bear watching hide to return to the guesthouse before sunset. In order to minimize the impact on the wildlife we require a minimum of three persons and maximum of eighteen persons per evening.
