After your walk you will enjoy a locally prepared hearty lunch in the village of Ojdula before meeting the local forest ranger. He will take you to see bears - in the wild.
With an intimate knowledge of the mountains, he will take you to view the bears from the protection of a viewing platform.
This will offer you a unique opportunity to view and photograph bears in their natural habitat. In the evening, you will have the opportunity to meet local villagers and experience their traditional hospitality; perhaps you might even feel brave enough to sample the local plum brandy!

Deep under the mountains volcanic and sediment rock layers alternate, allowing mineral water springs to break through. The water here is rich sulphur-hydrogen and, although an acquired taste, is said to have revitalising properties.
People travel from afar to take in the vapours, bath in the rich sulphur pools and to drink its waters. Don’t forget to pack your walking boots for a spectacular walk to the ruins of Balvanyos Castle.
This is one of the early medieval castles found in the area. It is estimated to have been built between the 11th and 12th century. There is a wonderful view from its only square shaped tower to the resort.
