Wildlife

With almost 60% of the surface covered in forests, Slovenia is a green oasis offering a perfect shelter for many kinds of wildlife. It is one of the few European countries where three large carnivores can be spotted, i.e. the brown bear, the grey wolf, and lynx. Slovenia boasts 400–500 brown bears, which ranks it among countries with the highest bear population in the world. Most of these bears are found in the Kočevsko forests. There, one can find many remains of virgin forests, where nothing but nature has ruled for millennia without any human interventions.

The following programs have been designed to offer various adventurous wildlife and outdoor experiences. The UNESCO-listed natural heritage sites, wildlife observation, and educational activities can be enjoyed here combined with light sporting activities, lively hospitality, excellent local food, and professional guidance.

We have developed most of our unique wildlife watching and educational programs in collaboration with the LIFE DINALP BEAR project and the Biotechnical Faculty of the University of Ljubljana. All programs are designed according to sustainable tourism standards with the smallest possible impact on the environment, especially the wildlife.
