Lots of bears and beautiful scenery

What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?

Seeing the wild bears from the hide in the woods and the horse and cart ride with the one month old foal trotting beside us.

What did you think of your group leader?

Udo was excellent, very knowledgeable about the local flora and fauna. Good sense of humour.

Do you have any advice for potential travellers?

Whilst the hotel was excellent, staff and food good, there were 3 dogs chained up outside and they barked intermittently throughout the night, so it was hard to get a good night's sleep. Would denitely advise taking earplugs. Also walking poles very useful on the rough mountain paths. A couple of the days were very long and a long time between meals, so be prepared and take snacks.

Is there anything else you would like to add?

I would have given it 5 stars had it not been for the barking dogs. A shame, because hotel otherwise excellent.
