Reviews

The WeWilder experience opened up a gateway for me to become aware of deeper aspects of Life. Learning about wildlife tracking, trailing, sit spots and sleep-outs transformed my relationship with myself and the more than human world and offered me the possibility to start understanding Life in a unique way. This experience put me on a path of eco-awakening and ever since I've encountered the gaze of the Wild Bison I have been nurturing my relationship with Nature in ways that I did not have access to before.

Paul, Experience Designer

Previously my appreciation of nature was superficial because I didn't know what I was looking at or even how to look. Now I learned a small but important hint in how to start seeing, listening.Thank you for opening my mind and senses. It is not an exaggeration that I feel I'm excited about life again, thanks to the WeWilder experience.

Nini, Graphic Designer

WeWilder activated my “biological sensitivity” in such a way that I—the guy that secretly despised birdwatchers no earlier than September 2020—ended up looking with loving eyes at any ruffled tit in the park.

Șerban, Advertising Company Director

Thank you for this awesome experience and for teaching me new things I never thought I would be interested in or intersect with! :)”

Bogdan, Architect

Bison Hillock offers you a lifetime experience that drives you from the comfort of an authentic house to the beauty of wilderness. A perfect location to reconnect with you and nature.
