European brown bears
Photo Tour Bears Slovenia
Slovenia is a country rich in forests – as much as 60 percent of its land area is covered by forests. The most extensive forests can be found in the south of Slovenia. Because of their remoteness and sparse population, these forests are ideal habitat for numerous animal species – including bears. An estimated 500-600 brown bears live in the region.
On this photo tour Bears Slovenia you will take photos from hides for 4-5 hours in the afternoons. Chances for photographing bears are exceptionally good. In the mornings you will explore the varied and photogenic surroundings with our local guides, with enchanting gorges, mysterious caves, and idyllic lake scenery.
This Photo Tour Bears Slovenia offers extraordinary highlights!
- 4 afternoons of photography from safe hides. Exceptionally good chances to take great pictures of bears and other wild animals.
- In the mornings, different photo excursions in the wild and wooded Notranjsko region: for example, a visit to a beautiful cave with underground rivers and lakes, an enchanting gorge with natural bridges and quiet oases, or the Sickersee, situated in the middle of a large karst field with idyllic nature.

What our clients say
The photo trip "Slovenia Autumn Colours" was my second trip with Amazing Views and certainly not my last. Jenny and Dan were always available to answer our questions with their photographic knowledge. Thanks to the small group, the support was individually tailored to the participants. Dan, the local guide, had the foresight to adjust the photo spots to coming weather conditions. For example, excellent photos were taken in the Soca Valley during a rainy afternoon. Dan led us to photo locations with the best perspective on the wild Soca and I always felt safe with him as my mountain guide. This photo trip will remain within my best memories, and I thank Jenny and Dan very much for their professional and sympathetic company.

We travelled with Amazing Views for the first time and were completely satisfied. No empty promises are made, and the focus is really on you as a customer. Dan took us to places we would hardly have found on our own. Dan and Jennifer were always there to help and advise us, and questions were answered competently. A big thank you to Jennifer and Dan.
We had great experiences with a total of 8 bears over three days - a good yield, considering that the bears do not appear at the push of a button! Thomas was a confident guide and the atmosphere among us participants was good and relaxed. Slovenianbears did a good job of organising the bear afternoons in the Hides. We had to bring the patience ourselves.... I liked the accommodation at Ana's, the food was good and plentiful. I found the excursions in the morning (underground lake, caves etc.) interesting, they gave us a good insight into the region (only the eagle owls didn't want to show up despite digital calls). There is nothing to complain about! - Bear-strong journey with AMAZING VIEWS to the bears in Slovenia!
It was my first tour with Amazing Views (and not my last). As a fan of wildlife photography, I got my money's worth. It was fascinating to observe the wild bears in the wild. Thomas' technical support was a great help for me as a beginner, and the exchange with the other members of the group was also extremely helpful. The organisation worked flawlessly, be it the transport or the accommodation in a smart guesthouse. To liven up the week, we also visited a cave and were able to use our skills there under difficult lighting conditions. All in all, the week was a huge success and Slovenia with its bears is definitely worth a trip. Translated with www.DeepL.com/Translator (free version)
This was my 2nd trip with Amazing Views and I enjoyed again very much. Jenny and Dan were very dedicated photo tour guides who showed us the beauties of Slovenia and always supported us to capture them with our cameras. It was a great week with nice people.
As an auditor / organizer I have been trained for over 20 years to find problems / errors / weaknesses, and there was absolutely NOTHING to complain! Organisation and individual support were top. A special big praise to the guide Dan for the choice of the locations and the consideration of the upcoming weather conditions. When even the photo guides Dan and Jennifer unpack their lenses, it means something.
For me it was the first trip with Amazing Views and I am totally thrilled. The trip was super nice and decorated with many beautiful impressions. The support & guiding by Jenny and Dan was top. I will definitely travel again with them. See you soon and thanks for everything.
