Weekend "Reconnect with your inner child"
2 days / 1 night
From 210 € - 1 donkey - 1 night in the cabin (price based on 2 adults and 2 children)*
Our little explorers, accompanied by their pack donkey will discover the plants and animals to be found in our woods and meadows and their mission will be to discover the animals tracks in the forest (handbook provided).
Using a compass and map our adventurers in the making will guide you to the forest ranger on the estate who will enrich the discoveries and show the way to even more.
In true family Robinson style, dinner is cooked on an open fire, stories are told around the campfire and you'll fall fast asleep in a real wooden cabin "made by the forest ranger", the croaking of the frogs and the hooting of the tawny owl will be your lullaby in the background !
You'll make lots of memories during the entire weekend!
