THE MAGIC FOREST

Listening to the trees, flowers the woods

ICONE_HIKING.png
ICONE_eno.png

Nature is full of invisible threads that tie nature and its creatures together. We will penetrate the woods searching for herbs and plants, to understand the signs they use to dialogue with each other by means of the smells, colours, shapes and sounds that nature has evolved throughout millions of years.

We have forgotten daily dialogue with plants and often we don’t know how to distinguish one from the other. In this little journey we will, thanks to our senses, go back in time and discover secrets and virtues, listen to stories of witches and witchdoctors, appreciate smells and tastes thanks to an “enchanting” meal based on herbs and flowers where even the simplest of herbs can unveil a world of pure magic. 

Tour with a professional guide and a plant expert.

Dinner in the “green heart” of the village.

Duration: about 6 hours
