October 1 @ 7:30 AM - 7:00 PM

450,000VND

THIS EXCURSION IS FULL. Please RSVP via the form for the waiting list.

This is a 2-part one day excursion. The morning we spend with the bears and the aftrnoon we have 2 fun workshops so a fun packed day.

This is our first visit to the Four Paws bear sanctuary in Ninh Binh. The wonderful center is situated on Cuc Phuong National Park’s expansive site. It provides a new home for bears that have been rescued from terrible conditions. With access to indoor and outdoor enclosures, the bears can finally behave naturally again, after having spent years in dark and tiny cages. They can choose to swim in the wading pools, climb on the high platforms specifically constructed for their needs, soak up the sun, play with other bears, forage for food or hide in their dens when they want to relax. FVH is pleased to connect people to get to know and support the bear at Four Paws.
