- Travel is by minibus and horse and cart
- Good fitness required for walks
7 nights guesthouse, almost all rooms have en suite facilities.
7 breakfasts, 6 lunches and 6 dinners included.
Walking times will vary from an afternoons sightseeing to half or full days walking. There are numerous up hill sections on paths and tracks and distances walked are up to 15km with optional longer walks sometimes available. The trip goes up to altitudes of 1450m from its starting point at 750m, so a reasonable level of fitness is required. Please note that the chances of seeing bears from the hides are good and in the past groups have seen wolves, beavers and other wildlife. Our guides are knowledgeable about the local wildlife and where to spot them, that said, like with all wildlife viewing, a large part of getting sightings is down to chance and we cannot make any guarantees. The trip is graded as graded as activity level 3 (moderate).
Normal group size and age
Normally 4 to 15, plus local leader. Minimum age 16.
On the summer departures (May-Oct.) there may be the opportunity to visit a bear hide. In the evening you will be taken to a wooden hide in the forest to look for bears. Although there is a good possibility of seeing bears it is not guaranteed. This option is subject to availability and permission from the park authorities, therefore it is organised and paid for locally (approx. 40 Euros).
The vast majority of Exodus adventures are adult group holidays. Groups are always small in size. We strongly believe that this adherence to small groups means a better experience for all; more time with your guide, less waiting around and a reduced impact on the communities and environments visited.
Each group is generally made up of like-minded travellers - with singles, couples and friends all joining in together. All these trips are suitable for single travellers, but if you prefer to travel with clients booking individually, please see our Solo Departures page.
Requires a spirit of adventure and some fitness, as the trip may involve more activities or longer journeys.
