This legendary, majestic predator can be up to five times the size of a man, weight-wise. Waiting for a bear to come out of its winter den – the thrill in the air at first glance, time that stands still.

It’s impossible to take your eyes of him. Admiration and wonder shine in everyone’s eyes. If you’ve ever experienced close contact with a brown bear, it’s something you’ll never forget.
