SLOVENIAN BEARs & CUBS PHOTOGRAPHY HOLIDAY DETAILS
Slovenian Bears & Cubs Photography Holiday
Join NaturesLens on a Slovenian adventure, photographing the magnificent Brown Bears & their cubs in the forests, which surround a quaint village which will form the base for the trip. Our 5-day photography excursion is best suited to amateur & semi-pro photographers with a love for wildlife & capturing stunning images of animals thriving in their natural habitat.
Have you dreamed about getting up close to Brown bear cubs as they explore the forests around them? Then this is the trip for you. We have put together a wildlife photography experience like no other, enabling keen wildlife photographers to encounter the magnificent bears & their cubs, capturing stunning images with the Slovenian wilderness as a backdrop.
Slovenian bears have lived in the expanse of forest, which blankets the region for centuries, & although just over 100 years ago there were fears that the population was dwindling, it has now recovered & now more than 400 bears currently thrive across the region. NaturesLens have designed a trip to enable photographers to witness these bears face-to-face, capturing them on camera amidst the wilderness that is their home.
Bear cubs & their mothers maintain a close bond in early months of the cub’s life, as it relies heavily on its mother for food & protection. The mother must teach its cub the ways of the world, so that when it becomes old enough it will be able to track, hunt & protect itself. These early moments of a cub’s life & its interaction with its mother are quite a sight to behold, & from the exclusive hides within the Slovenian forests. Sean Weekly, our NaturesLens leader will guide you, offering photography tuition as needed to ensure that you capture the best images possible.
The days will encompass leisure time in the mornings through to early afternoon, giving you an opportunity to go over previous day’s images or enjoy the delights of local villages. The afternoon & evening will bring photography sessions, accompanied by, Sean Weekly, a NaturesLens guide who is familiar with the region & the species, bringing you fantastic opportunities to capture stunning authentic images to cherish for years to come.
We have specially designed this trip to provide enjoyable afternoons/evenings of bear photography, providing the best opportunities to witness the bears without the need to sleep in hides overnight thanks to our careful selection of locations & itineraries. Instead, you will be welcomed to a cosy local hotel, & enjoy the famous Slovenian hospitality & local food, which they have to offer.
The combination of exciting days spent within this magnificent landscape, witnessing the beautiful brown bear & their cubs in their natural habitat, as well as comfortable nights in a local hotel being taken care of by welcoming hosts, ensures that this trip is not one to be missed.
The full cost of accommodation & travel (excluding flights) is included in the trip to make things as straightforward for you as possible, enabling you to make the most of your wildlife photography experience.
Accompanied by a NaturesLens guide, you will have access to unique bear hides which have been subtly integrated into the forest wilderness, providing excellent spots from which to observe & capture the bears on camera.
