Orsi Slovenia viaggio fotografico


Notranjska Forest is one of the most beautiful and unspoiled regions in Slovenia. The concentration of brown bears far exceeds 400 specimens.

The photographic huts located near the Notranjska park, an area protected by Natura 2000, are located in an area rich in woods and large forests, which alternate with lakes, valleys and mountains.

These wonderful forests arise a few kilometers from Lake Cerknica, the largest intermittent lake in Europe. Over the years the variety of these environments has made possible the development of numerous animal species. Three quarters of all existing butterfly species, two thirds of all bird species and three quarters of all amphibian species live in this region of Slovenia which is among the most important and evocative in all of Europe.



Tour information:

A photographic journey to discover the splendid European fauna. We will visit the magical forests of Slovenia in search of the beautiful animals that live within it. The areas we will visit boast an incredible biodiversity and all the rarest European carnivores live within the impenetrable woods: the wolf, the bear, the wild cat and the lynx

This workshop will be a journey in search of the brown bear that populates these lands,. Within the program there will be 6 high-level photo sessions. We will dedicate 4 sessions to the brown bear hides that will guarantee us to bring many shots and images from different locations.

In fact, during our tour we will have the opportunity to visit at least 3 or 4 different locations. We will optimize our sighting chances by using the best hides available and each location will be for the exclusive use of our group. The other two photo sessions will take place during silent excursions in the wild Slovenian forests in search of the rare Ural owl.

During the entire duration of the trip, the professional photographer Michele Bavassano will be at your side. He will remain at your disposal to help you find “The shot” you are looking for from your trip.

During this event, for the first time, a photographic workshop will be included where Michele Bavassano will share with you all the secrets, experiences and techniques learned in these years in the field.

The journey as well as from photographs and unforgettable moments of wild nature will therefore be a unique opportunity to learn by shooting alongside a professional photographer.
