Discovering the bear (bearwatching)
On the traces of the Marsican brown bear, with bearwatching, dinner in kuntain hut and evening excursion
This excursion is certainly the best known among our initiatives ... the hike over the years has given us much satisfaction and allowed us to get closer to the bear. After an adjustment path that will allow us to learn about the habitat and life of the bear, we look carefully grasslands waiting for bear , but also of other animals (deer, wild boar, deer and wolves). Supper campfire in moutain hut. Than the descent begins, in the dark, under the stars, with the help of some weak flashlight. We advise everyone to read carefully the rules of "Ecosofia", to help the guides to conduct a stakeout in full respect of the animals.
Hiking shoes, light raincoat, sun hat, water bottle, backpack, long pants, hat and wool gloves, jacket (possibly gore-tex), t-shirt parts, flashlight, binoculars, camera or video camera. We recommend that you dress in layers, whereas in ambush might get cold. It is mandatory to have personal equipment: face mask.
