Local Guide Services at Wild Brown Bear
The price includes transportation to the bear watching site accompanied by the local ’bear guide’. Naturally the price includes accommodation at the Lodge, dinner on the arrival. Departure to the cabin takes place around 17:00 pm after an early dinner and a short orientation meeting with a video presentation of the bear hides and bears. All the visitors can choose packed snacks for the night in advance before leaving to the bear hide. The local guide will be in the cabin to assist throughout the night. The visitors return to the Lodge around at 6:00 – 8:00 next morning to have a proper breakfast. During the day the visitors may want to get some well-earned rest or take local walks in the forest but there will also be some optional daytime activities. On one day the visitors may have a whole day excursion to look for the native Forest Reindeer that can be found in the area. It has some particular features that separates it from the domesticated Reindeer. Its behaviour also proves that we are dealing with a true wild animal. The surrounding area is also good for forest birds and flowers.
