About this tour

Stormy mountain rivers, high twilights, smoking mountains - the beauty of the Carpathians has been described by generations of tourists. And any newcomer who got to the Carpathians really wants to see everything with their own eyes.

The center was established with the aim of rehabilitating brown bears that were abused in captivity and suffered from a natural disaster, in order to reproduce their population in their natural habitat. Excursion to the pearl of the Carpathians - Lake Synevyr, which arose as a result of a volcanic collapse back in the Ice Age. The crystal surface of Lake Synevyr is surrounded by mountains covered with century-old fir trees. No wonder Synevyr is called the heart of the Carpathians! The mountain panoramas from the road are nothing compared to anything you've seen before. Near the village of Synevyr, you can stop at the hut - drink coffee, look at the panorama of the mountains, the river in a stone gutter below. Indescribable beauty! Below - the river Terebovlya, above - the Synevyr mountains densely overgrown with twilight. A narrow path, winding a little, rises up. On the right along the way - a grotto, from which, it seems, a stream flows - this is the outlet of the underwater runoff of Lake Synevyr. Water flows out of it through the rocks, and through this grotto at a constant speed at any time of the year Synevyr is fed by the waters of three mountain streams. The lake has an underwater flow through a natural channel in the rock.
