Thank you for your review! What a fun day that was, our last tour before lockdown! I think you can see why this is the tour all the guides want to work on - never the same, always fascinating and fun. Come back and we´ll go foraging by kayak - Pick & Paddle!

Had an amazing day with Jorge and Michael getting to know the forest from a new perspective. At first, I thought it would only be a bit different tour from what is usually recommended for turists. It’s not only about tasting new stuff, but connecting with nature, raising
