Wild Brown bears (Ursus arctos) are the focus of our 4-day wildlife photography adventure from the comfort and safety of specially designed photography Brown Bear hides built by Mountain Paradise in the natural setting of the Carpathian mountains, Slovakia.

Mountain Paradise have exclusive use of hides specially located in the national park to photograph wild Brown Bears in their natural environment, each day we will spend around 4 hours in the early mornings and 5 hours for late evening session’s in each hide. Each photographer will get the chance of a sunrise & sunset session from each hide. Wolves, Lynx,Red Deer, Roe Deer, Wild Boar, Badger, Raptors & Woodpeckers will provide us with other photographic opportunities.

During the day we will catch up on some rest and our professional photography tutor will provide tutorial and feed back sessions.

With an inclusive package, which includes flight, transfers and accommodation, we’ve come up with a unique workshop that will ensure you capture once-in-a-lifetime images of some of Europe’s most endangered and enigmatic species.

Over the course of four days in the field, we will enjoy numerous opportunities to capture spectacular images of Europe’s top predator and endangered wildlife in natural forest settings. And, with the help of top wildlife pro Ben Hall, we’ll ensure you return home with images you’ll be proud of.

In all a truly spectacular wildlife photography adventure.


Our hides have been built and designed by Tatra Photography and our award winning wildlife tutors, the hides have been designed and specifically placed in the locations so you can get a ground level perspective with eye level shots. We have 3 hides in different locations so you will have side lighting, back lightning and front lighting shots.


The hides are spacious with seats for 3 people. The seats are fully adjustable for extra leg room and reclining. The seats are also height adjustable so you can change the viewing angle from your camera viewfinder to the viewing window without any obstruction and still be in complete comfort. The hides also have a toilet with privacy curtain.
