Description Comisu Wildlife Experience Hides

Up in a high meadow above the tree lines lie Comisu hides, a great place for those who love adventures off the beaten track. The views up there are hard to beat!


Period: 01 May - 01 October

Let us take you on a hiking trip to the most beautiful and unspoiled parts of Făgăraș Mountains, where breathtaking views await and wildlife roams free!

You will spend an unforgettable time watching and tracking wildlife from this wooden hide located at 1,600 m. Get a chance to see bear, lynx, wolf, red deer, roe deer or the newly reintroduced European bison, roaming around free! A unique mountaineering experience!

Built by Foundation Conservation Carpathia in 2017 as part of the largest private conservation project in Europe, the hides are located on the south-eastern side of the highest mountain range in Romania and are a green business example that has a positive impact on the environment.

Highlights

We welcome those who wish to enjoy a great adventure – whilst off the beaten track: at our Comisu Wildlife Hides which offer basic accommodation, above the hills and forests. Piatra Craiului, Făgăraș and Iezer-Păpușa Mountains offer breathtaking views at sunset.

Remember to stay quiet at dawn and dusk, as you may have pleasant (wildlife) surprises. The adventure includes accommodation, off-road transportation to the valley, specialised guide and full board.

Enjoy a hiking trip (of around 2 hours, depending on your fitness level) to Comisu hide.

At dusk, look for bears, wild boar, foxes, red deer or roe deer from the safety of the hide.
