Surrounded by nature
Estonians are surrounded by nature, and their long, close connection with the land has prompted them to value and preserve its many forms, diverse features and inhabitants.
With more than 700 animals Estonia has one of the strongest Brown Bear populations in Europe. A forested area in N-E Estonia, called Alutaguse, has almost half of Estonian bears. Although fairly common there, it is still difficult to see them in wild. That is the reason why Natourest has built hides for observing and photographing these magnificent predators.
Bear Watching Tour

Bog walking with bog-shoes and swimming in bog pools is a definite must-do during our summer tours Family Holiday
Elk (or Moose, as Americans say) is a common animal in Estonia. With the population of more than 12 000 animals, Elks can be seen all over Estonia, but it is naturally more common in the big wilderness areas.
Estonia has over 2200 islands and the coastline is about 3800 km long.
Sea-kayaking is the best way for active people to explore the Estonian archipelago.
We booked the hide a half year in advance. Seeing a bear would be the highlight of our holiday since we are both animal lovers. Peep was really helpful during the arrangements! On the night itself we didn’t see bears which was really disappointing. Maybe the rain had something to do with it. We arranged a second night and boy were we glad we did. We saw a bear coming walking out of the woods a couple of times. An amazing sight! Definitely worth it.
The first night we shared the cabin with two other people but we still had our own (private) part of the cabin. The second night we had the whole cabin for just the two of us.
This experience was great, I recommend it!

I was thrilled to discover Natourest’s overnight stay in a bear hide! The staff at Natourest were hugely helpful and helped me to find the best opportunity and travel options. The hides are comfortable, completely bug free, and are split into two to allow for some privacy. As a woman travelling on my own I had no concerns at all about overnighting in the wilderness! I was SUPER lucky and we had multiple bear sightings, as well as raccoon dogs and a wide variety of birds. I highly recommend this experience!

Firstly, let me just say the older reviews referring to bugs in the huts and noisy at night, etc. are for the old hides, they’ve now got newly built upgraded hides that are clean, comfortable, warm, completely bug-free, quiet and all around fantastic for sleeping and nature watching.
We saw 2 brown bears and it was an absolutely amazing experience that I would recommend to anyone and everyone who is remotely interested in animals/nature.
Fantastic communication, customer service and friendliness from the company that helped organised it.
Can’t recommend this enough!
