Winter Bison and wildlife tracking in the Tarçu Mountains

Led by expert guides, this activity will offer you the opportunity to understand the behaviour and ecological importance of the bison. Identifying signs and tracks on the bison helps to understand their movements better, and hopefully lead you to a glimpse of these amazing creatures. Often in the forested areas, tracking needs to be well coordinated and very sensitively done to not impact the animals natural behaviour. Like all wild animals, there is no guarantee of what you may see while out in the mountains. Keeping your eyes open for tracks and signs is critical to succeed! The groups are purposefully kept small, to allow for easier navigation and a more silent manner of movement. At the end of each experience, the welcoming fire and home style cuisine await you at the local guest house.
