WILDLIFE TRACKING ADVENTURE

in Triglav National Park

Take a half day tracking adventure with our skilled nature guides with the wealth of knowledge about the local area and its wildlife. We will put on snowshoes, leave the road behind and head out in the freshly fallen snow. We will explore the surrounding winter forests looking for tracks and other signs of wildlife presence.

You can expect to learn basic tracking skills and get a much better insight in wildlife and their habits. Following tracks is often the best way to learn about habits of undisturbed wildlife. Oftentimes, you never know about different animals roaming in nearby forests, until you see their tracks. If you are lucky, you may even encounter the tracks of one of the most elusive animals- the wolf.

What do you need: hiking shoes, waterproof jacket, warm clothes, warm socks, hat, gloves, water bottle, walking poles.

Highlights: search for signs of presence of wolves and other wildlife and snowshoe through winter wilderness

You will meet your guides at Triglav National Park information centres in Bled and Bohinj on Saturday, 14 of April at 9 am. We’ll head out for the adventure of tracking wildlife, such as fox, chamois, red deer or even wolf or brown bear. Your guides who are experienced in wildlife ecology will brief you on safety and proper behaviour when tracking wildlife.

You’ll be traveling together with your guide in a minivan to selected location. You will put on snowshoes and begin to scan the area for fresh tracks. Can you identify the footprints in the snow? Can you read the clues left behind by animals and figure out what they were doing? Is the animal looking for food? Is there more than one animal? There are lots of animals that can be tracked in winter. Look for tracks of chamois, red deer and mouflon, search for scats, browsing marks and other sign of wildlife, and don’t forget to enjoy the frozen winter scenery.

After 2-3 hours of tracking we will head back to the starting points – Triglav National Park information centres in Bled and Bohinj.
