Full description

Visit a local palinka distillery. Palinka is a traditional strong spirit made out of different fruits, from plums to quinces, blueberries, and more. Enjoy a short tour of the facility and warm up while you taste some of the best types of palinka available. Visit the Prejmer Fortified Church before meeting a ranger in the afternoon to venture deep into the forest. After a 400-meter walk, arrive at a specially designed bear hide, designed by a professional wildlife photographer for those who want to see bears from a close distance.  Once inside, it's a waiting game until the bears arrive. Sometimes, you can also see wild boars or wolves. To keep you warm inside, you will be served with free palinka.

Because the activity takes place in the wild, there is no 100 % guarantee that you will see bears, especially during the winter. If you don't see any bears, you will be partially refunded.
