At Barefoot Bear we are passionate about an environment that contains some of the most beautiful forests and wildlife anywhere on the planet. It is our mission to take you on a close encounter with this environment and enjoy a truly up lifting and exciting holiday.
Barefoot Bear partners with local experts and business to offer adrenaline fuelled activities, challenging trekking and survival programs and the chance to escape to one of the most peaceful corners of Europe.
Barefoot Bear has been founded by local people to show case their skills and the beauty of their environment. Our company continually invests in the development of the local area and people. By choosing to travel with us you will not only be investing into the local area but helping rebuild local villages – literally!
The founding partners come from Kočevje in Slovenia and started the company with the intention of putting this remote but special part of a beautiful country firmly on the map.
It is our intention that Barfoot Bear becomes a vehicle by which we can bring new life and opportunity to the area by reinvesting back into the community we have come from.
So come and help us realise this ambition and have a unforgettable experience in doing it!
