Bear watching takes place just before the sun sets and an hour after. We wait for the bear in the photo hide to observe it in its natural habitat. Wait in silence and meet the king of the Javorniki forests!
A hike with a local guide and a hunter is definitely the best way to feel the nature and relax in the Javorniki forests. The trail includes guiding and an interpretation of the nature of an experienced guide and a hunting snack with local delicacies prepared by us. Walk, feel the nature and meet the wildlife of the Javorniki forests!
The hike is adjusted to getting to know and experiencing nature for the youngest (1-17 years old) and their parents. Together we will get to know forest animals and look for their tracks in the forest and refresh ourselves with local delicacies from the basket.
Our story intertwines with the way we live because as hunters we spend a lot of time in the woods surrounded by the beauty of nature and wildlife.
BE AROUND ME is a fan of the forest and its inhabitants. Our connection to nature is reflected in our way of life and concern for nature conservation. We want to show visitors the inhabitants of the forest, their way of live and the importance of preserving the integrity of their living space. Come closer, observe, but remain invisible in the bear’s life.

Our main partner in implementing programs for children is Center Dina Pivka , which was created in the Carnivora Dinarica project. We also actively participate in the LIFE Lynx project and with other providers with the bear-friendly label.
