Encountering Wild Animals

There are a lot of animals in the forests of Kočevsko, but there are few encounters with them, because they scare easily and avoid contact with humans. If you encounter a wild animal while cycling, stay calm. Back away slowly, do not scream, and do not throw objects at it. It is most likely that the animal will withdraw quickly. The same advice applies to bear encounters. If the bear does not retreat, try to speak with a calm voice to make it aware of your presence. Never run from a bear, climb a tree or approach it.

Safe on the way: Before leaving for the trip, check the map and upload it to your GPS device.
