Spending a Night in a Bear Hide

This is the video showing my experience of sleeping deep into the Estonian forest, in the hope of seeing brown bears and other wild animals… An unusual experience!

The owner of the hide gives you a GPS spot to go to with a rented car, in the middle of a lost countryside. From there, he will guide you through the forest to what will be your hotel room for the night… a simple wooden hut. Obviously, you don’t get much sleep in there, as there are many animals to observe, particularly bears and raccoon dogs in my case. People seem to commonly spot foxes too but I didn’t have much luck with them.

In any case, this will remain a really cool experience, and spotting you first wild big brown bear walking in the forest is for sure a memorable moment!
