Slovenia wildlife holiday
Description of Slovenia wildlife holiday
This trip can be tailor made throughout the year to suit your requirements
As the pioneers of responsible tourism, we've screened this (and every) holiday so that you can travel knowing it will help support the places and people that you visit, and the planet. Read how below.
PlanetWe are contributing to bear and lynx conservation and driving nature-based tourism development in the country’s Kocevje region.
While bears remain a heavily managed species in Europe, the increase in bear numbers in Slovenia is underpinning a new trend towards “bear tourism”, with the LIFE DINALP BEAR project (a member of Rewilding Rurope’s European Rewilding Network) working to change local mindsets and engaging stakeholders such as local hunting associations, the forestry industry and a range of European tourism partners in the planning and implementation of a bear tourism model.
With your trip, you can make a huge difference, and help science understand the lynx situation better, gain new data and insight into the life and activity of lynxes. By staying and exploring with us you will contribute to buying a new collar to monitor the lynx movement.
This will enable the LIFE LYNX research team to continue with the research. We cannot promise you will see a lynx while you stay with us, they are very shy animals and always avoid people. However, after we equip the lynx with the collar, you will get the photos of it and we will keep you updated with the process of the research.
PeopleTravellers not only experience some of Europe’s finest nature, but directly learn about and contribute to rewilding, and support local communities. Dedicated levies from each booking support rewilding initiatives, while local nature-based businesses benefit from income, job creation and developmental support from Rewilding Europe.
We pride ourselves in finding and working with the best local partners and guides to deliver unique, authentic experiences to you! Our business is based on relationships, filled with trust and integrity - our partners are here because they strive for the same. We offer our partners training through the Rewilding Training Tourism programme so they can provide an amazing experience with all the necessary knowledge about conservation.
In this experience you will stay in local accommodations that are environmentally friendly and employ local people. You will also visit a local artisan and help keep these crafts alive.
5% of your booking sum goes directly to local conservation organizations. This is used to fund local projects, such as lynx tracking collars and further research.
